Saving Money On Household Bills
The financial climate doesn’t seem to be getting any better does it? Every time I turn on the TV there seems to be more and more news about budget cuts, drops in sales and other things. It’s hit most family budgets really hard and I know that families are feeling the pinch.
Saving money on the household bills can often be a good starting place to help rein in spending. I do all the little things that are supposed to add up like:
- Not leaving the TV in standby mode
- Switching appliances and lights off when they aren’t in use
- Only boiling as much water as I need
- Increasing levels of loft insulation
- Turning the boiler down a degree or two
- Using energy saving lightbulbs
- Replacing our old double glazing with new energy efficient ones
But energy bills in particular just keep going up. SSE, the energy company, are offering their help in the form of a special offer and you don’t even need to be a customer, all you need to do is ask!
