Effective ways to cutting utilities costs in 2015

Running a household is a tough job and as the new year rolls in, it is important to figure out ways to cut costs on groceries and utilities. One quick way to save on groceries is to use coupons like this $1.00 OFF ONE Charmin Ultra Soft or Strong 12ct or larger (excludes trial/travel size) every time you go shopping. As for the utilities, you can save up on the electric bill by replacing existing light bulbs with energy-saving compact florescent bulbs. These bulbs use up to 75% less energy than a normal bulb and lasts up to 10 times longer. The initial cost proves to be an investment though as these go from $2-8 a piece but it saves you more money over time. Other simple cost-cutting techniques include turning the lights off when you leave a room or getting a thermostat with a timer to automatically adjust your house’s temperature as you go to work or sleep.
