Want to do a little decorating, or perhaps even a bit of remodeling? Of course you do. As a homeowner, you always want to make little improvements here and there, if only for a change of scenery from time to time. There is always a project to be done around the house. The only thing you need is an endless supply of energy and money.
Since neither is on offer, we have to use what every we have, and find the money where we can. We can dig beneath the couch cushions, but would likely only find a bit of loose change. That won’t be enough to get the job done. But there are virtual couch cushions that just might supply you with what you need if you know where to look. These three virtual couch cushions should provide a good start:
There are two kinds of sports fans: those who go to the games, and those who wish they could. If you are looking to save a bit of money for one of those endless home projects, you might want to consider a third option. There are those who choose to use a product like DIRECTV NFL SUNDAY TICKET to save a ton of money, and catch all the games regardless of where they happen to be played.
If you are a Lions fan as well as a season ticket holder, you will be thanked by getting a price increase after their 11-5 season. Your average price per game will be $86.59. Naturally, that does not include all the other associated expenses. Not only does a good TV package save you a ton of money, but you will be able to afford all those Fatheads you have in your wish list.
Could between $250 and $480 help with your next household project? If so, you’re in luck. That is how much the Department of Energy suggests you can save every year with the simple expedient of weatherizing your home. Fully half of your energy budget is dedicated to heating and cooling your home. Most of that goes to heating.
Start with the attic, and work your way down. Your walls are probably less leaky than you might imagine. But you need to be sure to weatherstrip the windows and doors. Those are two places where heat and money are most likely to leak.
While you’re at it, you can further cut your energy bill by using LCD light-bulbs. They are expensive, but last the longest, and are the most energy efficient. If you prefer CFLs, that’s fine, too. Anything is better than those incandescent bulbs you likely have all around the house. The sooner you replace those, the sooner you can start your savings.
Everybody needs a bath from time to time. But it might be among all things possible that you shower too much. It’s not your fault. We have been sold a bill of goods by the marketing companies, mainly, grooming and hygiene goods. There was a time when you were melodically told that, “You’re not fully clean unless you’re zestfully clean”. As a result, you bought more Zest, or other brand of bath soap.
The biggest water expenditure we have is our daily shower. It is not necessary to shower on a daily basis (just ask the Swedes), But if you must, there is no need to pour so much money down the drain with the bathwater. Try a low-flow shower head for significant money savings.
I bet you didn’t know your house had so many virtual couch cushions. The money you can save in your home should be more than enough to get you started on your next home project.
