One of the simple ways to save money on your electric bill is to find ways to use less of it.
You can get room air conditioners and just have them on in the rooms you are in for the time you are in. You’d be amazed how much money you can save by turning off that big central unit.
You can do the same thing with space heaters in the winter, plus bundle up in warm clothes.
There is a kind of water heater that instantly heats water as you need it, instead of holding dozens of gallons of water in a tank and heating it 24/7. That is another big savings.
Clean your refrigerator, and I don’t mean to throw out that 2 year old bottle of salad dressing that is growing new life forms. I mean, unplug your refrigerator and pull out it out from the wall. Get a screwdriver out and undo the panel at the bottom.
I repeat, unplug the darn thing first. Get a vacuum cleaner with an attachment that can reach the coil. Vacuum everything out. Brush it with a wire brush. Did I mention to unplug it first? You’ll be pleasantly surprised by the savings this will bring you.
Get in the habit of turning out your lights when you leave a room. Keep the windows shut tight. Check the vinyl or rubber around the inside of the refrigerator and freezer doors.
If you have a refrigerator that is side by side freezer and fridge, instead of top and bottom, you are wasting good money.
Put bushes around your windows to help block the sun. Put film on your windows that is made to reduce heat from coming in during summers and heat from escaping during winters.
Pull out chargers from the wall when you are not charging phones and other devices. Unplug your TV and stereo equipment when they are not in use.
Sometimes settle for watching DVDs on your computer instead of the big screen every time.
If you do all this, you can save up to 80% every month. Take that money and buy gold or silver to protect yourself from the coming financial collapse.
