Common Sense Money Saving Tips
1. Pay your bills on time.
Late fees can create a vicious debt spiral.
2. Replace light bulbs as they burn out with their more efficient CFL or LED counterparts.
3. If you have a programmable thermostat, use it.
Otherwise try to remember to turn the heat down when you’ll be in bed under a blanket anyway.
4. Use ceiling or portable fans in the summer.
Just moving the air helps a room feel cooler.
5. Occasionally do an energy audit.
It’s easy to Make sure appliances are running when they shouldn’t. Always double check windows and doors to be sure they are closed tightly. Do you have a fireplace? The damper should be shut when it’s not in use. etc
