So you want to know how to save money on your electricity bills?
This is a really simple thing. All you have to do is implement a few easy things into your daily life. And you will be set for years of savings. This is the first part of how to save money each month. So here at Lifewoot.com I have decided to kick off this series on Earth Day. This is when we remember that we are part of a larger system. And if we take care of the Earth’s resources then we can have more for the future. Our future. Our family’s future.
We get so caught up in our daily problems that we forget that we live on a Little Spinning Ball in Space. And there is no other Earth close by. What we have here is what we have. And that’s it. Electricity is produced in a variety of ways. Even if we use Hydro-electric power we will still need to use up some of Earth’s resources to get it into our homes.
But you and me, we can be Socially responsible Citizens of Earth.
And as a bonus you get to save money on your electric bill.
How do you like that! Cool isn’t it?
So there are two main things anyone can start doing today:
The first is to switch off the lights, fans, coolers etc whenever you leave a room:
If there is no one in the room there is no need to use electricity.
Make this simple habit a part of your life.
And you will be set for a life time of saving your money.
The second is to replace all old light bulbs with LED light bulbs:
If you can change over CFl light bulbs too that would be even more of a saving for you.
Here is the picture of the bulbs I bought recently. (I have not been paid to advertise the brand)
As you can see it is a new offer and I got a buy-one-get-one free offer. I bought two boxes of these. Almost every country will have LED bulbs available now. So you can invest in these.
And here you can see how LED bulbs are much cheaper in electric cost than plain bulbs or CFLs. So it will end up saving you money in the long run. At home I have changed over almost all the light bulbs to these. A night lamp of LED would be 0.5 Watt. A 5 Watt LED is equivalent to 40 Watt brightness of an old type of bulb.
Imagine the money you can save on electricity by these two simple acts.
Switch off the lights when not in the room…and switch over to LED bulbs.
