Tips to Save on Electric Bills


When it comes to utilities, your electric bill is typically the highest percentage. Electricity powers everything from your air conditioning to your lights, plugs, and more. When you combine the costs of using all these appliances and devices, the prices can get quite high.

The expense also depends on the electric company you use, your region, and how much electricity you use even when you aren’t home. If you’re looking for a way to cut costs a bit, then this will help. Here are a few tricks you can try to drop your electric bill. Even a few dollars a month could save you in the long run. 

  1. Make Sure You Have the Best Deal

People often overpay for their utilities solely because they don’t know any better. But with the spread of energy deregulation in many states, most areas will have a choice of a few different providers. Research is key in choosing a supplier.

There are some websites that make it easy and painless to find the best deals for your electricity. Simply do a quick search, compare rates, and switch to get the lowest rate without sacrificing efficiency. It could do wonders for your bill.

  1. Turn Off Appliances

If you are leaving your home, or even simply leaving a room, turn everything off. People often forget to switch off the lights when they leave the room. Make a habit of flipping the switch when you exit; your savings will add up over time.

This also goes for other electronics. Fans, chargers, and the like – if you aren’t using it, turn it off or unplug it. This way, you don’t run the risk of using unnecessary energy that will end up costing you.

  1. Go Green

With all the efforts to combat climate change, going green has become a lot easier. Many eco-friendly lightbulbs (and other electronics) use far less energy than regular ones. They usually have a better output, as well.

Utilizing environmentally friendly lights and appliances will not only save you money but also will help reduce your energy footprint. Save money and help the environment, too.

  1. Consider Solar

Admittedly, solar energy is a big investment. However, like going green, it has significant environmental effects. It costs quite a bit to install solar panels big enough to run a whole household, and some areas are stricter than others.

Research your local requirements for solar paneling before investing. Chances are though, if you can foot the upfront costs, it will be worth it. You would be using clean energy, and over time, saving quite a bit more on your bills. If you can make it work, it would make a huge difference.

  1. Check the Air Filter

One of the most common problems that can drive up an electric bill is the A/C. Sometimes, things in the system go wrong. You could keep dropping the temperature and feel no difference. However, the unit is still doing the work and using the energy, for which you’ll ultimately be responsible.

To ensure your A/C is in top shape, be sure to check the filter once a month. A dirty or clogged filter is one of the most common A/C problems, and it’s a simple fix. Save yourself the pain of that electric bill and stock up on filters.


Every situation is a bit different. Unfortunately, all of these solutions don’t work for everyone. Start at the top, by ensuring you’re getting the best deal, and then go from there. Form positive habits (like turning off the lights). Spend a little extra on eco-friendly devices to save a little more on your bill. If you want to go big, go solar. Any of these ideas can reduce your electric bill and put you on the path to savings.

You Don’t Need To Spend A Lot To Have Fun!


It’s cold outside!

Winter is upon us. The days are getting colder, the nights are longer, and Christmas will be here before we know it. The latter can only mean one thing: our purse strings get tighter! However, with the weather being so poor, our entertainment options are also limited, which leaves us all in a bit of a catch 22! However, the good news is that you do not need to spend a lot of money in order to have fun. Read on to discover plenty of different suggestions for those who want to have a good time without breaking the bank.

Watch a television series

This may sound like an obvious suggestion, but is there anything better than getting stuck into a new television series? You may think that you have seen all of the programs you are interested in but have you really? There are so many different shows to enjoy, why not try something new?

By new, we mean something totally different to what you have watched before! For example, why not watch an anime series? Did you know that anime makes up 60 percent of the world’s films and television programs? A lot of people think this type of television is only suited to children and/or those interested in battle shows like Dragonball Z and Pokemon.

This could not be further from the truth. Anime spans all genres, from romance to sci-fi. So you will have no trouble finding something in your domain. Plus, even if you don’t like it, it’s certainly something worth trying out because the concept of it is so fascinating.

Use your social media time wisely

Time spent on social media can seem like time wasted when you are merely scrolling through Twitter updates and Facebook statuses and reading pointless messages about what your friends have been up to.

Nevertheless, you can have a lot of fun on social media if you use your time wisely. There are lots of entertaining videos that will make you laugh for starters.

Not only this but you can create mood boards on Pinterest, as well as following inspiration Instagram accounts with uplifting stories and quotes. These are the sort of things that will motivate you.

Learn a new skill

Another way you can pass the time when you are bored is by learning a new skill. Thanks to the Internet, there are many ways we can learn a new skill and we do not need to spend a penny. You will be surprised by the different things you can learn on YouTube.

From a new language to learning how to knit, you are bound to find something that appeals to you. Once you have mastered one skill, move onto the next.

Play a video game

Another way you can have fun without spending a lot of money is by playing a video game. Look in secondhand stores or do a swap with one of your friends to make this cost-efficient.

You should also choose a game that is fairly difficult so that it will provide you with lots of hours of entertainment. Here are some suggestions…

Super Mario Bros 2: The Lost Levels

  • You probably expected the first game to be an action one, right? Think again! Yes, you may have played Super Mario before, and yes, it probably was not difficult. But have you played Super Mario Bros 2: The Lost Levels? This version was not even released in the U.S. because the company feared the popular game franchise would take a hit to their brand image.


  • You can’t save this game, which means you have to be good in one go! Moreover, you only have three lives – better than one, though, right? It gets worse, though… you cannot protect yourself! Oh, and if an attacker so much as skims you, that’s it… lights out.

Lost Planet

  • This is a game that has a great reputation. In general, it’s not that difficult. However, the ‘hard’ level certainly doesn’t take any prisoners!

God of War III

  • This is another game that has a super hard level, which is known as Chaos mode. You deserve a trophy if you can complete this game. You are going to be under an attack of a relentless nature from your enemies. However, your damage barely has an impact because they recover from it straight away.

Primitive Pattern

  • This can be likened to a Rubix cube! It seems so simple, but it is anything but…

Demon’s Soul

  • Well, when the purpose of a game is to die rather than live, you know it’s a bit weird and probably difficult. If you like things gruesome, this is for you!

Take surveys

Not only do surveys provide you with an effective method of curing boredom, but you can also make a bit of extra money in the process too.

Of course, there are some surveys that are a bit dry and boring but they aren’t all like that! Some surveys are interactive and take you on a shopping experience just like you would if you were in store.

Make your own crafts

Are you creative? If so, why not explore this side of you further and start making your own crafts? There are many different routes you can go down. Why not make something you can display in your home? You can also get jewelry making kits or you can make your own accessories from scratch. Why not test yourself to see what you can make from using items that you have in your home? That way, you won’t need to spend a penny.

Not only is something like this incredibly fun, but if you find that you are good at it, you could even turn it into a business! The craft industry is thriving at the moment, so there is no better time to get involved. This could be a fun thing that you do on the side to keep yourself busy.

Make a bucket list

Where do you want to go? What do you want to achieve? Make a list of all of the things you want to do with your life and set about achieving them.

Start a blog

Another fun way to pass the time is by starting a blog. This blog could be about anything that is interesting to you, whether this is something to do with your career, your hobbies, or merely any thoughts you have. Again, not only is this a great way to pass some time, but you can also make a bit of extra cash by blogging too. Once you are established and have built a viewing and domain authority, you can make money through affiliate marketing, guest posts, and so on! However, whether it makes cash or not, blogging is a great way to express yourself and you will be able to communicate with others in the blogging world too.

Find ways to make exercise fun

Last but not least, another way that you can have fun without spending any money is by exercising. You do not need to have a gym membership in order to work out and have fun doing it.

Here are plenty of suggestions you can use to make exercise more enjoyable:

  • Play a classic outdoor game, such as frisbee or tag.
  • Have a pillow fight with your kids or your partner.
  • Do some exercises while you are sitting down. Sit and be fit chair exercises mean you can watch your favorite program on TV at the same time.
  • Use a hula hoop.
  • Get a fitness buddy and use exercise as an opportunity to have fun with a friend.
  • Spend some time reading fitness success stories online.
  • Learn new things
  • Get a fitness app.
  • Celebrate small victories.
  • Do a run (or a walk) for a cause you care about.
  • Go outside to exercise.

As you can see, there are many different ways that you can have fun without spending a lot of money. If you are bored over the winter period, why not try one or two of the activities that have been mentioned on this list? After all, there are some things in life that are still for free – embrace them!

Party on a Budget Food & Decorating ideas


If your kid’s birthday is coming up and you have a sense of gloom because you absolutely cannot afford to have a party for him/her then you have come to the right place.

Here are some of our top tips to throw an epic birthday bash on a super tight budget.

What Is Your Party Budget?

You need to have a starting point no matter how small or big you are planning on going with your party.

Even if you’re thinking ‘I want to go as cheap as possible’ you still need to figure out how much that cheap as possible really is.

Take in account how many paychecks you have coming before then and how much you can afford to set aside of each of those towards the party.

And while you’re scoping out your budget, you can start looking at prices for party food.

Choose The Right Theme

As much as you would want a unique party theme, it might not be the best idea if you’re trying to keep costs low.

Popular themes will usually be more affordable because they are in higher demand, and with Halloween, costumes and trick or treating right around the corner,, what better time to stock up on party supplies?

You can check out an online party shop for ideas for themes and it will also give you an idea about prices for general party supplies.

(Hint: Online party shops are much cheaper than party stores)

Themes like Minecraft, Harry Potter, Lego, Fotrnite, Unicorns, and Princess are all really popular right now and decor for those themes will be easy to find.

Go With Classic Decor

Pinterest can make your head spin with wondrous ideas of a larger than life party that is a mere couple of DIYs short of an actual fairy tale.

But if you’re not careful you will get sucked into the pretty hell that is the Pinterest perfect party.

Instead of trying to go overboard with hundreds of ideas, keep it simple and that will help you keep costs low.

You can never go wrong with classic decor like a few balloons, a bunch of streamers and a pinata (which you can DIY too).

Do DIY Party Favors

I may be generalizing here but kids don’t really care all that much about the decor or what you give them as a party favor for that matter.

So the point here is, go as cheap as possible.
That doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice quality.

You can make your own party favors, or do an ingredient party favor, where they have to make it themselves.

Like a lego car, for example. You could supply all the parts and have them all make their own cars to play with together.

Borrow & Hunt

Don’t try to make do and spend money on things you can borrow from people you know.

Friends, family, and neighbors are bound to have things you can use for your party and they will certainly be happy to do so if you only ask.

Whatever you can’t borrow or make yourself, you can bargain hunt for at dollar stores and thrift stores.

There’s hardly anything you can’t find if you look hard enough.

Forego Individual Party Packs

If you’re familiar with children’s parties, you’ll know that abandoned party packs are a very common sight at those.

And the frustration of having put so much time, effort and money into those only to have them discarded, is also just as common.

Instead, you can replace the individual party packs with a sweet/ treats buffet.

This will do two things – first, it will eliminate the abandoned party pack issue and it will also save you money because you can then buy your sweets in bulk instead of bite-sized snacks that you can put into party packs.

You can always put some decorated paper bags for each guest to take some leftover snacks.

Talk about bang for your buck.

Do The Snacks Cheap

Apart from replacing party packs with snacks, you could also replace a hefty meal with snacks.

Instead of making huge meals that might waste, you could do a finger food party and make the snacks yourself.

That doesn’t mean you need to replicate fancy party snacks though.

You should opt for simple snacks with two or three simple ingredients (preferably things that you can buy in bulk) and make those yourself the day before the party.

You can always wrap it to keep it fresh.

Make That Cake Yourself

You may have a grande cake in mind but let me ease your conscience by telling you your kid will only care if the cake is delicious and looks remotely good.

Before you panic or think that you can’t possibly make a decent looking or tasting cake I can assure you that you can.

Hundreds of thousands of moms have learned how to make and decorate cakes for their kids on their own, by using the internet.

Youtube and Pinterest have tons and tons of information, tutorials, and tips for every theme under the sun.

You are bound to be able to produce something decent if you keep at it and if you don’t – I’m pretty sure it’ll still taste just fine.

In Conclusion

When you are determined to both stick to a budget and throw a decent birthday party then it is certainly possible.

You can borrow and DIY and bargain hunt your kid’s most awesome birthday party yet.

And when all is said and done just remember that love and fun are entirely free and you can give your kid an incredible day if you give him just those two things.

How to Maintain Your Home Appliances


Home appliances become better-made yet more affordable; it seems, year after year. But this doesn’t mean we should all just keep buying new ones for our homes. That’s not only costly, but also impractical, since these appliances aren’t all made from the same mold, so the difference in shapes and sizes might not really fit into your current home layout. Regular maintenance is the key in prolonging the home appliances that you currently have, and even improve their performance. Additionally, ensuring that all your home appliances are in good working condition can help protect your family from infections possibly caused by dirty and poorly-maintained home appliances.

Here’s how you can maintain them:


This is probably that one appliance in your house that runs 24/7 – except for the times when you need to do the occasional defrosting. And it’s necessary, considering all the food items that you place in it. To maintain your refrigerator, use your vacuum to clean the back where the coils and wires are located to remove the dust that might otherwise start building up and affecting your refrigerator’s efficiency. Do remember to unplug the power before doing so.


Cleaning your dishwasher is a necessary chore that you’ll need to get used to, especially as your dishes will come into contact with it every time they need cleaning. Start by cleaning the food filter regularly, and keeping the seals moist at all times. Use a rinse aid and high heat to help reduce spotting and deposits of white calcium from hard water.


Whether you’re using a microwave oven, a toaster oven, or a convection oven, it will still need to be cleaned and maintained. With ovens, though, the best practice would still be to clean as you go, otherwise, the heat will meld any spills or leftovers to the oven surface making them almost impossible to remove. A cool tip is to mix white vinegar and dish-washing soap, and then spray the mixture to all the surfaces in your oven, wait a few minutes, and then wipe it down clean with a paper towel.

Air Conditioner

Remember to replace the filter for your air conditioner regularly – typically at least once every 3 months – and remove any dust from the visible vents. This will ensure that your unit can continue to work to efficiently and cool the room without needing to work too hard.

5. Washing Machine

Cleaning your washing machine is necessary to keep your clothes smelling fresh after a tumble in it. The inner surface of the washing machine can have a build up of calcium, which can clog its inlets and outlets. Decalcify it by the following steps: run an empty water cycle at the hottest level available, and then add baking soda or white vinegar before finishing the cycle. You can also use a lime decalcifier instead of the white vinegar or baking soda. Change your filters regularly, as well.

It doesn’t really take all that much to keep your home appliances running well. The older ones in particular were built to last, so taking a few simple steps to maintaining them should make them last as long as possible. Newer models might be less expensive, but if your current ones run well and are well-maintained, you’d have far better use for your money than to keep replacing your home appliances.

T.J.Maxx and Marshalls Organizational Expert, Amelia Meena’s Tips for the New Year


new years date 2017 written in snow

It’s a new year – a time for new beginnings and positive changes.

Some people like to make resolutions. Popular resolutions include eat healthier, lose weight, exercise more, quit smoking and get organized. Some people also like to make changes, whether it’s a new wardrobe, a new haircut or simply add a few new piece of furniture or home decor to their home.

Here are some great tips to give your home a fresh start with room-by-room organization to help you start off the year with a clean slate. Check out stores like T.J.Maxx and Marshalls that have a variety of high quality furniture and home décor, all at amazing prices. Here are just a few ways to get organized and take charge of your space.

The Kitchen:

Tackle the mail pile and junk drawer head on by hanging a decorative magazine rack as a mail sorter. You can also hang multiple sorters in a row so each family member has a designated place to store on-the-go essentials.

If you have limited counter top space, consider purchasing an industrial style rolling stand to serve as a place to house your frequently used cookware. Look for one that also features a wine rack, so you can easily transition this piece to be used as a bar when entertaining guests. Stores like T.J.Maxx and Marshalls are great places to shop for quality kitchenware pieces at amazing prices.

Color code your kitchen to keep it looking neat and streamlined. Consider picking a monochromatic color scheme for your cookware and everyday essentials to help bring order among bulky pots and pans. 

With cooking and entertaining kicked into high gear now throughout the New Year, the best way to prime your kitchen for upcoming festivities is to focus on decluttering your counter space. Items used once a month or less should be kept on higher shelves or in the back of cabinets.

Restyle your pantry by creating continuity with all the same size and style food canisters. Consider using see-through or wired storage baskets for easy grab-and-go snacks.


The Living Room

To minimize the mess and maximize the cleanliness, choose an organizing approach that provides style and function. Select a piece of furniture with storage like a rustic-style trunk or classic ottoman to house cozy essentials, including extra blankets and throw pillows, that can also provide extra entertaining space or extra seating when guests are over.

In smaller areas, if you’re looking to add extra storage without the bulk, try a ladder shelf. It’s a great alternative to a standard book shelf, as the shelves narrow towards the top and keeps the room feeling more open. You can also use a decorative ladder as a way to display beautiful throw blankets versus taking up prime seating real estate on a couch. Places like T.J.Maxx and Marshalls have a wide variety of home furnishings that can transform any space at amazing prices.

To keep your coffee table tidy, try using a serving tray to house decor elements. Instead of stacking items like coffee table books, consider displaying them out in a neat grid and layering the rest of your pieces on top. If you want to opt for a more minimalist look, using a rectangular tray on a round table or ottoman creates an effective geometric style. I also recommend finding a decorative place such as a wooden jewelry box for utility pieces like remotes and electronics.


The Bedroom:

Your day begins and ends in the bedroom so it should be the most stress-free, relaxing room in the home. Beginning with the nightstand, invest in a sophisticated bedside table with drawers that provide a neat and organized spot for your nighttime needs. Limit the number of items on the top of your nightstand to two – three, focusing on your everyday essentials such as a lamp or clock and one decorative item like a fresh succulent, which serves as a calming accent piece.

If the surface area in your bedroom is scarce, use a wall-mounted jewelry hanger with a variety of hooks. For smaller-size jewelry like rings or pins, instead of using a bulky jewelry box, opt for small decorative bowls to store your go-to baubles.

Create a turnkey vanity space by using a stylish bar cart to display your favorite perfumes and make-up. You can find great accent furniture and décor at places like T.J.Maxx and Marshalls that can be repurposed to serve a different function than intended without compromising the quality and style.

A closet can easily become packed at the seams and cause unnecessary clutter, so to clear up storage space add stylish hooks to your bedroom walls to hang and display your favorite handbags or scarves during the cool winter months. 


The Home Office:

To keep a clean workspace, opt for a stylish file cabinet on wheels. This allows you to easily access important papers, but can also act as additional desk space when needed. Remember to also use labels and color coordinated folders to easily keep track of where your papers are stored to avoid creating a “catch all pile” on the top of your desk.  Check out the incredible home section at T.J.Maxx and Marshalls for high quality items at an incredible value.

Look up! Utilize your wall space to hang your to-do lists, calendar reminders and more. This trick helps to further declutter your desktop area, and keeps those important items top of mind. A letter organizer also serves as a great place to store notebooks in a designated area.

If space is tight and you can’t (or don’t need to) dedicate a whole room to act as a home office, use a credenza as a multifunctional piece of furniture to neatly disguise your work station when entertaining guests.

Mega Time Saving Tips For The Holidays And Beyond

Thank you Cottonelle® for sponsoring this post. Stay tuned to the Cottonelle Facebook page for more great tips and tricks.


woman in a supermarket checking his shopping list

Are you already making lists? Are you checking them twice?

The holiday season can be crazy. There is so much to do and so little time to get it done. As it stands there is only six weeks until Christmas morning (as it stands at the time I am writing this). Six weeks! We haven’t even started shopping for gifts yet or whipped up our holiday card list.

The trick to getting things done is to streamline everything and get yourself organized.

I’m going to share with you some of my favorite tips and tricks that will carry you through the holiday season, and beyond.

First and foremost – de-stress! Go grab yourself a cup of coffee or tea, find a good book to read or a fun movie, and just “chill out” for a bit. It’s important to take time for yourself to unwind and gather your thoughts. It’s important to do that every day (give yourself some “me time”). Even 5 or 10 minutes here or there would help. During the holidays I think you should allow yourself more “me time.”

Once you feel a bit more relaxed and you cleared your head, I would suggest you get a pen and paper and start making lists – your “to do” list/lists. If you need to make a list for everything (Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years…) go right away.

Mark down everything you need to accomplish, things you need to purchase and so forth.

Once you have your lists – aka “game plan” – handy, figure out a way you can delegate the responsibilities so that it doesn’t all fall on your shoulders. Enlist your spouse/significant other and children to help you. For example, our daughter works at a grocery store. She can easily pick up things we need from the store after her shift is up. My husband also has extra days off (vacation days he had to use up). I have plenty of things on my list for him to do too so that it’s less stuff I need to worry about.


Younger children can help with cleaning (taking out the garbage, putting dishes away…).

Try to get ahead of things. If possible, get things done ahead of time so that you are not rushing around at the last minute to accomplish things. For example – when you are watching television at night (after the kids go to bed), start wrapping holiday gifts. Don’t wait until the last minute (Christmas Eve) to wrap. If you wrap a little bit each night you’ll be done before Christmas Eve and you’ll be able to enjoy yourself.

Here is another good tip – when gifting children toys that require batteries, or toys that are held in the box with many ties, open up the toy and remove all the ties and add batteries BEFORE you wrap it. That way, come Christmas morning, the kids can simply unwrap the toy, open the box and enjoy the toy right away. We’ve been doing it this way since our kids were little and it works like a charm. That way you can enjoy watching your children opening up their presents instead of hunting for the scissors, screwdriver and assorted batteries.

My mom used to buy toys year round. She would wrap them and keep them under her bed. That way if I was invited to a birthday party she already had a gift I could give the birthday boy/girl. I have since adopted that idea and I pick up gifts when I come across something great. I don’t necessarily wrap them, but I do keep them in my closet. That way I have last minute gifts or hostess gifts on hand.

Stock up and take advantage of sales. If you find a great sale on cranberry sauce (for example), pick up a few cans. That way you won’t have to worry about running out during dinner. Any left overs you can use for another time or donate to a local food bank.

I have had that happen to me in the past. I have run out of things like butter, rolls and juice during a family get together. Now I make it a point of having a little extra of certain thing just to be on the safe side.


If you are planning on having a lot of guests over for the holidays, stock up on the #1 essential – toilet paper! The last thing you want to happen during the holidays, or if you have guests over, is run out of toilet paper.

I remember one winter night we ran out and I had to race to the grocery store in the cold of winter to get there before they closed. I got there about 11:50 PM and they closed at midnight. I would have been mortified if we had no toilet paper for the night – and it was just me and my family, let alone guests. We didn’t even have paper towels we could have used and none of our neighbors had any extra they could spare.

One recommendation would be to pick up a package of Cottonelle® Mega Rolls with CleanRipple Texture. Each Cottonelle® Mega Roll is like having four rolls in one. That means just one will last as long as if you had four rolls. (comparing number of sheets to leading Ultra 77-ct. roll)

The more sheets in each Cottonelle® Mega Roll also means you have to replace the toilet paper roll less often. That means less hassle and more convenience. With the CleanRipple texture a little bit goes a long way. You don’t need as much to get “clean” like you would with other toilet paper.

Notice the CleanRipple Texture.

Notice the CleanRipple Texture.

Imagine how embarrassing it would be to run out of toilet paper when you are hosting a dinner or holiday party. That is my #1 worry whenever I have people over. It’s especially embarrassing for your guest if they are using the facility and run out of toilet paper. I would never want to subject a guest to that kind of situation.

Offering your house guests Cottonelle® Mega Rolls with CleanRipple Texture also leaves your guests feeling cleaner. Plus the toilet paper is soft to the touch for pleasant experience.


Using Cottonelle® Mega Rolls is great for year round too. The last thing you want to do is run out of toilet paper. I’d even suggest keeping one roll hidden, just in case. That way when you see you are running low you know to purchase more – but – just in case it’s 11:50 at night (LOL) you know that you have at least one more available.

Speaking of Cottonelle® , the brand has teamed up with lifestyle expert Brit Morin to provide families with even more ways to save time and space.

Check out some of Brit’s amazing tips. My favorite is the pegboards. I’d love to do something like that.
