Make savings in your housekeeping budget. And make dreams come true.
1. Lower the room temperature
Drop the room temperature by only 1 degree and save 6% on your heating costs. In the living room it should be 20 to 22 degrees, in the bedroom for a comfortable night’s sleep 18 degrees. Thus you help your wallet and improve the environment.
2. Use the cheaper night tariff.
Make the most of night tariffs to run the dishwasher, washing machine or tumble dryer.
3. Enlightening! Change the old for the new.
Change your light bulbs and halogen lamps with energy saving and LED lamps. These need considerably less electricity. And you save money.
4. Sleep mode? Your electrical appliances should adopt this mode.
Electronic equipment also uses electricity even when in standby mode. And quite a lot. That goes for the TV, PC or stereo. This can easily be averted by the use of a power strip with a switch and you save around 140 francs per year.
5. Make real savings with a spa in the shower.
Showering uses only a third of the hot water needed for a bath. Opt for a shower rather than a bath.
6. Hunger is an indulgent cook.
Shopping when you are hungry is a bad idea. When you’re hungry you buy more than you need. Therefore, write a shopping list. And when there’s no crisps, avocados or creamy yoghurts written there, leave them in the supermarket.
7. Live the high life with tap water.
Drink tap water instead of bottled. It costs less, is the same quality as most mineral water and produces less rubbish.
8. Insurance is a good thing.
Particularly when your son has scratched the neighbours car. Or your daughter has dropped her friend’s laptop on the floor. Make sure you check that you have all the coverage that you need.
