Checking Out...

Checking out of the grocery store is definitely a time you need to be paying attention and watching what is going on. Week after week there are register errors that cost consumers lots of money! Whether it is the cashier accidentally scanning an item twice, or a sale item coming up at regular price, you need to be on careful watch to point out mistakes and have them correct them.

There are many stores that have price accuracy guarantees that offer dollar incentives or free items if the price comes up incorrectly. Check your store for their policies... most won't volunteer this information or say anything unless you point it out.

Finally, never think an amount is too little to point out. Add up those little mistakes over a year and you could be looking at substantial savings. :)

Did you know it costs approximately $1 every time you run a load of dishes? (Electric, Hot Water and Detergent.) Keep that in mind next time you are tempted to run a half-empty dishwasher! If you only wash full loads, the savings will surprise you.

Other ways to cut the costs of running a load include using "energy-saving" or "short-wash" features. You can use this feature for most day-to-day washing needs as in most cases it works just as well. You also save considerable energy by using the "air-dry" feature instead of the "heated-dry" feature. This change alone can cut your energy use per load up to 50%.

If you are in the market for a new dishwasher, look for an energy star model. Even though it could cost you a little more up front, your savings in a year could be substantial. Did you know that buying some energy star appliances can earn you a decent size rebate from your electric utility company? Check with your local electric company to see what they offer.

Electric Bill Makover...

Electric bills can vary from month to month but there are little things you can do year round to cut costs in this area.

First, learn to turn off lights when you are not using them. I have been known to joke about my husband being the light police, (see The best things in life are free), but when our electric bill plummeted from $109 to $54 in one month after him making us do this one little thing, I couldn't argue with the results.

Training the kids to do this can be a biggie. How about doing random "light checks" with a little reward for them if you find no extra lights turned on? Or how about offering a treat incentive if the electric bill goes down by a certain dollar amount by next month? While it may seem you are nagging for the first few weeks as you remind them CONSTANTLY about flipping off the lights, you will find that it will quickly become a habit.

Second, consider using compact florescent light bulbs which cost a little more, but last between 8 to 15 times as long as regular light bulbs. They also use between a fifth to a third of the power as a regular light bulb, so they can save big in the long run.

Third, unplug items you are not using. Many things now-a-days use electricity just to stay on standby mode. Look for the little tell-tale lights on things such as DVD players, TVs, computers, video game systems and printers. If there is any kind of light on, it is using power to keep itself in standby mode. In my kids rooms, I hook all those items up to a power strip with a main switch which they can switch off after they are done using it. That way they don't have to walk around pulling plugs on everything which can be inconvenient.

Fourth, if there are appliances in your kitchen that you don't use frequently, unplug them! Toasters, toaster ovens, blenders... it takes only a moment to plug it in and unplug it if you need it. Chances are you are not using items like this daily.

Finally, When it comes to major appliances that need replacing, consider energy efficient models. While they can cost a little more up front, the savings in the long run can be substantial. Not to mention that some power companies offer rebates on certain models. Check with your power company before making a purchase to see what they offer.
