Savings Tips

Save money by making your home more energy-efficient. Use timers on high-energy items (as well as lighting so it goes on when you need it and off when you don't).  Full freezers work more efficiently.  If it is half full of food items, fill some empty milk or sealable containers two-thirds full of water and stock them in your freezer.
