Conserve money and energy this Autumn

As the days get darker and colder, the first thought is often to get the heating ramped up and turn on all the lights!

Now I'm not suggesting for one minute that to conserve money and energy you go through the winter in the dark, being frozen cold!

But think about this:

Around about 30 years ago, President Carter in the USA, asked his country to turn down the thermostat and "put on a sweater." He wasn’t making a fashion statement; he was encouraging Americans to conserve energy during the 1979 Oil Crisis.

Alliance to Save Energy claims a one-degree thermostat reduction can save 3 percent on your heating bill.

(2) Turn off unnecessary lights. You know the feeling - you walk from room to room switching on lights that then remain on for hours. Only the part of the house that you're in should have the lights on!

(3) Change all your bulbs to energy saving bulbs. There are some great deals out there where you can get them for about 40p. Sainsbury are often giving them away freee to shoppers.

(4) Go around the house everynight and switch off all your electric goods. How often have you left your mobile phone charger switched on for days on end. Not good for your pocket or the environment!

(5) Have an autumn cleanout and sell your excess goods on or ebay!
Make some money to help with your Christmas Present list!

These tips won't just help your pocket - but just think how they'll help the environment!
