Think About The Hidden Costs in Your Home

Using the fans in the bathrooms and range hood over the stove are a great way to help keep humidity down.  It does however; cost you money to run them, (they do use electricity), so remember to turn them off when you are finished cooking and bathing.

There are so many hidden costs in our homes that we just don’t think about.  Cell phone chargers plugged into sockets are still using electricity even when you are not charging your phone, so keep them unplugged when not in use.  If you are going out of town, unplug your television sets, turn off all lights and unplug all lamps and small appliances.  Buy a night light or two that will automatically turn on when it gets dark. They use minimal electricity and they do the trick when you are away.

Think about the small things when trying to save money in your home.  The small things add up, and end up costing you money that you could otherwise use for more practical use, like going out for a nice dinner
