This week’s budget idea might be a bit of a harder one for some, but once you’re able to see a fw possible ways to tweak your utilities-usage, you can be saving HUNDREDS of dollars a year that can be going toward things like vacations, down payments on large purchases, etc.
Think about using a slow cooker or barbecue instead of an oven or stovetop. Run a fan and a dehumidifier instead of a power-guzzling air conditioner. You can adapt. Good luck!
