Don’t Let Your Energy Usage Drain Your Bank Account


Like more families with young children, the chances are that you live life on a budget. Don’t worry; you’re not alone - this is how much families tend to live their lives. The fact is that family life is a lot more expensive than you could ever imagine before having kids - there are just so many different costs to cover.

One of the biggest costs for most families is the price of energy usage. Obviously, unless you’re going to up sticks and move off grid, you can’t get by without energy, but what you can do is find ways to stop your family from draining your bank account because of the amount of energy that you are using. To reduce the amount of energy that you are using at home, here’s what you can do:

Find out how much energy you’re using as a family

The first step to reducing your energy usage is to work out how much energy you are using each month. Then, once you’ve found out the amount of energy that is being used and what it is costing you, the next step is to work out what you’re using that energy for. Is it the TV set? Is it leaving lights on when they don’t need to be on? Is it the fact that you always leave the washing machine turned on even when it’s not in use? If you want to cut costs, then you need to determine what it is that your energy is being used on.

Look at ways that you can reduce your energy use

Once you’ve worked out where you are using the most energy and spending the most money, the next step is to look at ways that you can reduce the amount of energy that you are using. Say, for instance, you’ve realized that you’re using a lot of energy powering your air conditioning system. It could be worth investing in a Smart Zone system that allows you to control the temperature of each room separately so that when no one is upstairs, the air conditioning isn’t on up there. Or, say you’ve noticed that you use your tumble dryer too much, perhaps you could try drying clothes outside on the line, rather than tumble drying them.

Commit to being more eco-friendly as a family

To help keep the amount of energy that your family uses to a minimum, perhaps you could all commit to being more eco-friendly as a family. Maybe you could give each family member goals to meet, like turning off lights when leaving the room and not leaving appliances on standby. If you make a conscious effort to be more eco-friendly as a family, you should find that you are using less energy and spending less money.

The fact is that your energy use doesn’t have to drain your bank account, it’s just a case of being smart about how much energy your family uses. So that you can keep your monthly costs low, it’s important to use energy sparingly.

Review Cerave Foaming Cleanser si Cerave Moinsturing Lotion

 Buna fetelor, Astazi vreau sa va scriu despre un brand descoperit anul trecut care imi place foarte mult pentru partea de ingrijire a pielii : Cerave. Cerave este un brand cu produse create impreuna cu dermatologi, care au dezvoltat o gama de produse fara iritanti, bazate pe ceramide similare pielii pentru a oferi o varianta de ingrijire care reface bariera pielii si a oferi hidratare pentru o perioada mai lunga. Ceramidele formeaza bariera de protectia a pielii, mentin hidratarea si compun 50% din stratul de lipide. Gelul de curatare pentru piele normala si grasa Cerave (Foaming Cleanser) este produsul care mi se potriveste cel mai bine pentru a-mi curata tenul dimineata si seara. Contine trei ceramide esentiale, acid hialuronic, elimina excesul de sebum , curata usor si profund impuritatile si machiajul, nu blocheaza porii. Pentru machiajul ochilor, recomand totusi sa folosim apa micelara inainte. Formula este fara parfum deci este potrivita si pentru tenul sensibil.Mie im

Review: Cleanse & Care Eye Make-up Remover Boots No7

 Am demachiantul acesta de cateva luni si imi place sa-l folosesc , cred ca e demachiantul meu bifazic preferat.  Are o consistenta apoasa , usor uleioasa si curata bine pana si machiajul rezistent la apa. Testul suprem a fost cu un eyeliner waterproof de la Essence care trece foarte greu , insa cu acest demachiant nu am avut probleme.  Eu agit foarte bine flaconul, pun cateva pompite de demachiant pe o discheta si sterg machiajul ochilor .Nu imi agaseaza ochii , nu trebuie sa insist tare. Deseori l-am folosit si pentru ten si curata bine , pot sa spun ca imi simtean tenul usor hidratat de la uleiul continut.  Imi place si ca formula este fara parfum , testata oftalmologic, hipoalergenica, potrivita pentru ochii sensibili .  Singurul minus ar fi pretul mai mare decat al celorlalte demachiante bifazice folosite de mine, in jur de 35 de lei. Pompita este perfecta pentru dozarea produsului , cateva pompite imi sunt deajunse pentru ambii ochi.  Din cateva miscari s-a luat
