The holiday season has started, and it’s sad to say that along with Christmas cheer comes an increase in criminal activity. Cars are vandalized, wallets and purses are stolen, and homes are broken into. And with the current state of the economy I suspect this year will be even worse.
In this day and age, home security systems are no longer a luxury, but a necessity. Hubby and I don’t have much, but we do want to protect what we have. Things are tight for us lately, but I’ve got to figure out a way to budget a security system and the monthly monitoring fees into our expenses next year. I’ve done a little bit of research, and ADT has the cheapest rates I’ve seen at under $34 a month. I’m sure I can find a way to budget an extra $34 a month.
I can’t stop the criminals from targeting me out in public, but it is in our power to protect our home and belongings. We’ve worked too hard for what we do have for some bastard to steal it from us.
