Money saving tip #1: Turn down the heat!
If you live somewhere that requires heaters and furnaces during the winter, this one will help. Turn your thermostat down by 3 degrees. Its not a lot, but last month I did this and saved almost $16 through the month on my power bill! I decided this month to turn it down 2 more degrees, so I'll report back next month when I get my bill. I keep the heater at 60 degrees when I'm sleeping, not home or am up moving around and doing things, and 65 when I am sitting on the couch watching TV and knitting or spinning. I wear sweaters and warm socks all the time, and occasionally a hat inside my house but I am saving money on my power bill! Try it out!
