10 Minutes to save

As much as I love searching out all the best deals, there are so many things that we can do at home to save money, quickly and easily. All these little things add up to great savings over time. So I thought I would start a series on things that you can do in 10 minutes to save tons of dollars over time.

1. Take a 20 oz bottle, fill it with water and put it in each of your toilet tanks. It will save you money on your water bill by displacing some of the water in the tank.

2. Open your dishwasher after the rinse cyle and let your dishes air dry. This will be a notable energy savings on your bill.

3. Unplug your surge protectors or power strips when not in use. I have been doing this for 2 months now, just in the one room where most of our electronics are and it has saved me at least 10% a month!

4. Lower or raise your thermostat just 1 or 2 degrees depending on the weather. It will make a noticable difference in your bill, and really...who can tell the difference in a degree change?

5. turn down the temperature on your hot water heater. Not only is it safer for the kids, but the savings will help your pocket book!

Do you have any ideas on how to save in 10 minutes or less?
