If your community offers any services, make use of them. You are really already paying for them, so get your money's worth. If you live in a community with a pool or community center, make sure that you are utilizing them regularly. If your community has parks or trails, use them too. Your community resources are funded by either your taxes or by other additional fees, so in reality you have already paid for them. Part of choosing a certain community is for the services offered, make sure that you make the most of what is available to you. If you are not certain of what is available, do some research. Go to some of these places and check out what they have. Often, if the services are not free, the charge is minimal.
