We're now serious about not wasting electricity. We have convinced ourselves to look at each light bulb, radio, fan, etc. as water faucets for electricity. Would you wash your hands and walk away leaving the faucet to run all day? Of course not! Keep reading... there's more...
We also now have at least one floor lamp in each room. Most of the time in the evening that's all we need. (Our living room was built with 8 sunken 65watt flood lights.) Why turn on EIGHT lights when one will do? IF we need it bright, then we go bright, but only for as long as needed.

If your trying to save money on your grocery bill then try a local Latino or Asian dominate store. My husband and I found a Spanish grocery store that has great prices on fish, chicken, and fresh turkey. The store even had marinated items for under $2 a pound and they were good quality products.
Also check out local fish markets if you live near the coastline. You may have to get up early in the morning or buy some items in bulk but the savings are amazing.
You'll be able to cut your grocery bill in half.
