Saving Money, Saving the Planet

Whether you’re retiring early or trying to piece together an eventual retirement, every dollar counts, and any way you can save a few bucks here or there can really add up.  Taking a look at expenses, you’ve got rent, bills, and leisure… Wouldn’t it be great if you could take a little bit out of the bills and spend it on an extra vacation?  Fortunately, you can.  Electricity and gas have reached ridiculous prices over the past decade, and for many, investing in some energy star appliances can pay off big.  Fridges and freezers built more than a decade ago can be costly for a number of reasons, and many energy star fridges can reduce energy usage by over sixty percent!  Even if investing in a new fridge seems a bit drastic, installing energy efficient light bulbs into your fixtures and lamps can pay off quick!

I don’t know how they do it, but some light bulbs are now built to last up to 80,000 hours!  Here are some of the most efficient light bulbs that won’t cost you much more than a regular one.  Never change another light bulb again!

Stop wasting money on huge energy bills, and consider investing in some energy saving products.  Feeling really techy?  Take a look at these solar panels which can reduce your electricity bill even further.
