    Why not take some time off? The only thing I do is snow removal after all my cleanups are done.

    The easiest way is to run some off on the printer, just don't spend it, look at it until satisfied, then shred it.
    There, you made money.

    Playing Monopoly can be fun and relaxing, too.

    Make money: :laugh: I don't think that's what he meant, but okay.

    The only period I have no real work is between Jan and March when there's no snow. Otherwise, I'm occupied with some kind of work.

    I have a lot of customers with arteasean well eads and septic candycanes in their yards. I have thought of building wishing wells in the winter and selling them come spring. Give them options for just well, well and mulch + shrubs+ other plantings.
