Ideas to Save Ten Dollar a Week

Use cloth napkins, towels and diapers: Paper napkins, paper towels and disposable diapers are easy and convenient, but cloth can be washed and used again. Use these to save money and the environment.

Do the dishes: Use reusable dishes for your meals instead of paper plates and cups.

Hang your clothes out to dry: The dryer uses a lot of energy. It takes a lot to run, plus it can also heat up your house, causing your air conditioner to have to work harder. Accomplish that fresh, dried-on-the-line smell in your own backyard.

Buy energy efficient appliances: If you are in the market for new appliances, take energy efficiency into account. Look for items with the Energy Star label.

Get an energy audit: Your electric or gas company can send someone to your home to tell you specifically what you can do to make your home more energy efficient.

Enroll in cost saving programs: Ask your energy company if they offer any load management, off-hour rate or other cost saving programs that you can take advantage of.

Close the flu damper in your fireplace: Don't let hot or cold air escape out of the fireplace. Keep the flu closed.

Insulate your water heater: Pack insulation around your water heater to help retain heat. Also try turning the heater's thermostat down a few degrees.

Install low flow showerheads: You can cut your shower's water consumption in half by installing one of these.

Change washing machine settings: Heating water uses energy and costs money. Wash your clothes in warm or cold water instead of hot.
