Happy Earth Day!

In honor of Earth Day, I thought I’d share a couple of cost savings tips that will save you money:

– Sell your car.
– If you can’t sell your car, take public transportation once a week instead of driving.
– If there is no public transport then carpool.
– Or, ride your bike to work and ditch the gym membership.
– Weatherize your house to keep in that A/C in the coming months.
– Enjoy the fresh air for as long as you can between seasons to reduce your heat and A/C.
– Explore your own backyard and stay closer to home on your next vacation.
– Sell your TV – Cash in your pocket, no cable bill, and more time off the coach.
– Turn off the lights!
– Put your computer, TV, etc. on a strip plug and turn it off at the source to reduce energy.
– Close closets and bathrooms so heat or A/C doesn’t have to go as far.
– Plan ahead and do your errands together to save gas.
– Stop using pesticides on your lawn.
– Use a push mower instead of a gas powered one.
– Buy less $^#*!
– Use Craigslist and Freecycle to reuse the $^#* you already have.
– Take a shorter shower.
– Use the cold cycle on your laundry.
– Use the oven less as the summer comes around.
– Use your own bag at the store and get five cents off!
– Fill up your freezer, since the fuller it is, the less energy it uses to keep food frozen (just think Popsicles and smoothies for summer!
