Energy Saving Tips

Here are some great energy saving tips, courtesy of Werner Rogers:

I am no super duper Earth saving genius or anything but I know a few energy saving tips here and there that can help cut down on my energy costs and also save the planet one house at a time in the mean time.

I decided the other day that I would go online and do a little research to find out more on this subject than I already knew. I of course know to shut off the water when I am brushing my teeth and the put a brick in the tank of my toilet to save water trick. I found out that there are more than just these little things that you can do around your home to help save energy and money in the process.

One thing you can do to help save on your hot water heater is take shorter showers. This helps conserve water first of all but it also helps save on the energy it takes to heat all the hot water that you are using by being in there for twenty minutes.

Quick Tip : Trash Talk in the Car

Car Trash Bag

No, not actual ‘trash talking’… Sorry to disappoint. ;)

Reuse a plastic shopping bag as a ‘trash receptacle’ in your car. For added stability, secure the bag inside a cardboard box. Store replacement bags nearby in an empty paper towel tube or tissue box. When the bag is full, toss it into the trash can at the gas station next time you refuel the car.

Quick Tip : Recycle Crayon ‘Bits’

Crazy CrayonsRecycle old crayons that are too short to draw with to make new crayons in fun shapes.

Heat makes a crayon a little loopy; it may melt into a swirl or pool into a whirl. With this in mind, we chopped up crayons and baked them in shaped mini cake tins, making large blocks that are easy for toddlers to hold and will surely inspire older artists.

Encourage kids to come up with their own combinations—a blue-and-white blend for drawing the sky, or a mix of reds and oranges for sunsets.

 

Tools and Materials : old crayons, kitchen knife, mini cake tins
Crayon How-To

  1. Parents can use the knife to chop crayons into pea-size pieces, taking care to keep colors separate so kids can combine them as they like.
  2. Preheat the oven to 150°F while children fill the tin with crayon pieces, arranging them in interesting designs.
  3. Bake just until the waxes have melted, 15 to 20 minutes.
  4. Remove the shapes after they have cooled. If they stick, place the tray in the freezer for an hour, and the crayons will pop right out.

Client Testimonial

I hired Michelle to help me reorganize my kitchen pantry. Once we got started, however, she organized a LOT more of my cabinets which desperately needed it. I couldn't believe how simple her organizing solutions were. She did such a great job that I hope to have her come back to help me purge my basement!
