Insulate the Inside of Your Home
It would be wise to make sure all your windows and doors are well-sealed and caulked. A draft dodger would be a great idea to block the air which can find its way in underneath the door. If you do not have one of those, a towel or blanket will do just the trick.
Placing insulation into the walls or attic can also be helpful. If you decide to have insulation placed inside your walls and the attic, you can collect an energy credit on your taxes by saving the receipts.
Winterize the Car
Better fuel efficiency can be had if you use antifreeze for your car's radiator and de-icer for the windshield wiper solvent. By doing these things, you can reduce the amount of time having the car idling before you begin to drive. Make sure you properly inflate your car tires.
In addition to that, make sure you use winter tires for the winter. That would cut down on possible accidents due to slippery and icy roads.
Deenergize Major Appliances
If you are leaving and will be away from home, it would help to de-energize major appliances that you have in your home. When your home is vacant, reducing the energy bills is as important as being there. De-energizing your home means unplugging television and radio sets, turning off the water heater and unplugging the refrigerator. The water heater should also be turned off.
There are many benefits to carpooling. The best and most important benefit to carpooling can be that it saves money. With fuel prices being as high as possible these days, carpooling is the best way to cut down on the amount of fuel that a driver would use in his/her car.
When a commuter joins a carpool, the share of the energy burden is divided. Insurance companies also take heed to the benefits of carpooling. Some insurance companies actually offer discounts to anyone who rideshares.
Eat Well By Being Cheap
It would help to eat out less. By eating out less, you can cut your expenses as much as $20-$25 per week. By doing this, you save money. With the extra money left over, you can use it as an emergency fund provided you have one.
Try using a crockpot to prepare meals such as soups and stews. Doing so will save on energy costs because everything is being cooked in one pot.
