Comment from Kate
There are some great tips here from both visitors and ones which I assume they both carry out on a day to day basis.
I too carry out most of these too. I make it a point to turn things off at the plug, it may seem trivial but if you add up all the machines on standby in your home, the power usage would soon add up.
I also buy all my cleaning materials from Wilkinson’s which always has great savings on lots of their products. It works out so much cheaper. The only issue is you have to be prepared to change from your favourite product to get the savings. But I have never found any of the products of sub standard so I am always happy.
making these little changes can really make a difference.
