When you think
about reducing your energy consumption, your mind automatically goes
toward your AC or your lights. And while the big things like heating and
cooling matter, the little things add up just as quickly. Case and
point - your kitchen. In many homes, the kitchen contains more devices
than any room in the house. And if you're an amateur chef like me, you
manage to use all of them every time you go in there, which can lead to
big utility bills.
You don't have to give up cooking to save the planet, but you can reduce your usage if you use a few tricks in the kitchen.

Money Saving Tips
It's been said that the right amount of herbs and spices can make anything taste good. Bland fried potatoes become delicious French fries with just a little salt. Red pepper on plain cheese pizza can really bring out the flavor. Unfortunately, many recipes call for more than just a little salt and pepper, and buying all manner of dried herbs at the supermarket can become a clutter-inducing endeavor. Fresh herbs are obviously better, but the ones you buy at the store cost more and go bad quickly.
How to solve this dilemma? Grow your own. Sound daunting? It isn't.
Whether you live on a big farm or in a small apartment in the city, herbs are one of the easiest things you can grow.
