Who doesn’t want to save a little bit of money?
Organize the Fridge
Staring into the open fridge for 15 minutes searching for something to eat can cause more problems than just a grumbling stomach. All of that cold air leaving the fridge can really rack up that electric bill. Therefore, keep your fridge nice and neat so that you know where everything is when you need it. That way you don’t have to stand and search with the door open. You could also try having a list on the outside with what’s inside the fridge to help with your organization.
Turn off the lights
Though this may seem like common sense, it can be easy to forget to do. Just remembering to turn off lights or electronic devices when you leave a room can really make a difference. If need be, try posting a sticky note on your door to help you remember. Also, unplug devices when they are not being used. For example, after your cell phone is finished charging, unplug the charger.
Run Only Full Loads
Whether it's the dishwasher or the washing machine, wait until it is filled before running it. This will save both precious electricity and water. Line drying clothing is another great way to save money.
