Every penny counts, so here are some simple tips to help you save around your home.
Tea for two? Only fill the kettle with as much water as you need.
Putting hot food the fridge is a big no-no. It wastes energy and is bad for your fridge. So just let it cool naturally first.
If you can, do the week's washing in one go and put a full load into
the machine. And if you've got an eco function, put that on.
Try nudging your heating down by a degree or two.
Turn the lights out. If you leave a room, or don't need the
lights on, flick the switch and turn them off - even if you've got energy saving light bulbs.
