There are a lot of ways to save money by doing simple little things that you overlook. Here are several of those “simple little things” that you can do!

Ways to save money here and there:

  • Turn off your air conditioning when you’re at work and your kids are at school. This one is a no-brainer, but sometimes we forget or just leave it going because it’s nice to come home to a cool atmosphere.

  • Clean your filters at least once every month. When your filters are dirty, the debris can block the airflow, leading to reduced efficiency.

  • Try investing in some ceiling fans. Ceiling fans circulate the air and keep rooms quite cool. You can even try putting a fan in your attic, as it will help pull cool air into your house.

  • Install window tint on your windows to cut down the temperature in rooms that have the most sunlight hitting them. Blinds and curtains work well too.

  • You can also install dimming switches so that you only use just enough light for you to do work.

  • Unplug your electronics, such as your microwave, laptops, phone charges and so on. These generate heat, and they also bleed your energy from the outlets.

Those things aren’t so hard to do now are they? The hard part is remembering, but you can just print this blog out and slap it on your refrigerator!
