If you love spending money you don't have to then by all
don't participate... But let's get right into celebrating
National Cut Your Energy Costs Day!
WHY IS THIS A
Even though there's no reason for this specific day to be
chosen, no one likes to spend more money than they have to! And it
doesn't matter if you do it for the environment or for your bank
account, your energy costs are probably too high as is.
costs are skyrocketing these days and we need to come up with new ways
to battle these costs so that we can stay on top of things.
cost of oil is one of the biggest factors, whether it's really from the
lack of supply or just greedy businesses that are getting too big for
their own good. Regardless of which reason is the truth, these costs
can keep you from traveling as much and might even cause you to have a
cold winter. My house is heated by oil, so I know how that can be.
there's the cost of electricity that also seems like it's going up at
the same time. The cost of oil may be partially to blame for this too,
depending on how the power plant creates its electricity.
are some of the reasons why you see such a fast growing "green"
movement as people search for alternative energy sources. Some of us do
it for the environment. Some of us do it to save money. Some of us do
it to have more control and not let big businesses toy with prices.

energy costs and seek alternative energy sources, today would be a
great day to educate yourself and others on this topic and put those
energy-saving steps into play!

CFL light bulbs to save some energy. Just be sure not to
these light bulbs because they contain mercury! But what
the bigger picture?
Can you find a way to detach yourself
from oil and other expensive energy sources? Do you have
land to put up a wind turbine or a wind mill? How about
some solar panels on your roof? Both of these methods are
ways to create your own energy. And what about your
you think you could afford to buy a hybrid vehicle or maybe even an
electric car? Or how about buying a nice bike and riding that
places that are close by instead of using your car so much.
