Here are a couple of quick tips to save money at home:
- If you don’t have it in your budget to upgrade to a low-flow or dual–flush toilet, put a brick or sand-filled 2-liter bottle in your toilet tank. These will take up volume and help you save water every time you flush!
- Turn down the temperature on your hot-water heater by at least 2 degrees and wrap your unit in a blanket.
- Replace your burned-out incandescent light bulbs with CFLs or LEDs. Simply swapping out the most commonly used incandescent bulbs in your home can save you $60 to $100 a year. Don’t use the curly bulbs in your barn, they collect cobwebs which are fire hazards.
