Let's save some energy!
Did you know, that by simply replacing a couple of light bulbs in your house, you could save more than $100 in energy costs a year? Lighting accounts for about 20% of a home's electric bill. By switching to a CFL bulb, you could reduce greenhouse gases and save energy and money! Mom is a great example. She has already replaced most of her light bulbs with compact flourescent bulbs. Danny and I are doing the same. I know, I sound like an advertisement, or a PSA announcement, but I feel that it's important. At Wal-Mart, you can buy a 6-pack of bulbs for only about $10. Those six bulbs could end up saving you around $200 in energy savings a year. I think that's a pretty good investment. With a baby on the way, Danny and I have been trying to find ways to save money, and this is one way that we're doing it. I challenge everyone in the family to replace AT LEAST one light bulb in your home. If you've already done it, good for you!
