For a happy and peaceful life sometimes we need to look into small savings. Small savings helps us in a bigger way.
Some more saving tips from grandma are shared here:
- Use energy saving bulbs, they consume 5 times less than average light bulb and last longer and saves you money!
- Keep a note book in kitchen – every time you notice that you are running out of grocery note it down. When you go for shopping take it with you. This way you don’t need to run back and forth to by grocery and saves your money and energy!
- Go through your credit card statement and notice auto-renewal of any memberships or utilities that you might have had signed up for. Cancel any club membership that you don’t use anymore.
- Defrost freezer regularly. The thicker the ice that is built up in the freezer, the higher the energy consumption. Do this once in 4 months.
- Turn off lights when you leave room and turn off any devices that you use in day light. A lot of electronic equipment that are actually switched off consumes energy. It is better to use switch socket board to put a stop to energy usage/theft.
- If you own a big house and do not use all rooms – then why to use vents in unused rooms? Shutting vents in unused rooms can save on cooling and heating bill.
- Use less water, less power, use less detergent and cook at home the amount you need – this will help you reduce the bills and saves big chunk of money!
- Don’t go over bored on giving gift to please people. Set a budget based on your financial situation. Look for something useful with your budget and tell your family in advance about your plan.
- Recycle plastic bags from grocery shops – use them for collecting garbage and as liners for garbage cans. Alternatively, you can consider taking them back to store to buy stuff next time.
- Go through your clothes – think whether you need to buy new clothes often. Use already bought clothes and minimize your expenditure.
- Ask your pharmacist opinion and take suggestion to buy generic over the counter medicines. They cost less and are equally good.
- Instead of buying single bottled water, see where you can collect spring water. Fill the big bottles and drink water. Fill in recycling bottles and carry with you.
