1. Set Your Washer On Cold Washing clothes in cold water will still remove stains and it saves on energy costs. 2. Unplug Electronics When not in use, unplug electronics and even some appliances. It may not seem like much, but it will save you money on your power bill. Just by unplugging, you can easily save $100/year!
3. Change Your Air Filters You may think that changing your air filters frequently may cost you more money, but on the contrary, it actually saves money. In fact, changing dirty air filters can reduce your energy bill by 15%.
1. Shop Off-Season I always buy my children’s clothes in the off-season. You know the drill, buy summer clothes in the fall, and buy winter clothes in the spring. 2. Ask For Discounts Many stores offer discounts for homeschoolers, active military, first responders, and more. Just ask while you are at the checkout if they offer any discounts. Chances are they do, and many times if they don’t they will still knock off a percentage just because you asked.
