There are a few things I have implemented
over the past few months to
help us save some
One is recycling more.
How is that going to save money you ask?
The way I see it we will have to
buy less garbage bags
we will be throwing more things into
the recycle container.
We are required to pay for recycling anyways.
I mean, I have always recycled, but we
are making a more conscious effort to do more now.
So far it is working.
Mid week we typically have to take the trash out. We have
been able to put it off a bit longer, like maybe to the weekend.
The second thing I have implemented is insulating
our water heater and pipes.
The plumbing is exposed in the basement so this
was easy to achieve.
I have noticed that the amount of time it takes for our
water to heat up has been reduced substantially.
Lastly, I have been keeping our heat
set at 69 degrees.
Yes, I admit there are some days I let it
go to 71. Overall though I
do manage to keep it at a cooler
Really it hasn't been that bad keeping it cool.
There are times were it does tend to feel a bit
cooler than other times, but it
isn't that bad.
Not only are these money savers,
but they are also green.
