As the clock ticks down to the LOST series finale, I'm personally feeling a sense of relief. Yeah, I'll miss Sawyer, Locke, Desmond and Hurley (especially Hurley!), but this last season has definitely left me feeling WTF? and I'm really ready for it to be over. It also seems like there's no way possible, after 6-7 years of twists and turns, flashbacks and flash forwards, that the show can end well. And by that, I mean that I can't see how the writers can possibly live up to the fan-induced hype and come up with an ending that won't disappoint a large number of people.
Of course that doesn't mean I won't be glued to my TV set come Sunday
Of course you have, and as such your heat is probably on full blast. You may be staying in more (really using up that electricity, huh?) and perhaps you're taking more warm baths. (Hello, hot water bill!)
It's nice to stay toasty in the comfort of your own home when the temps dip low outside, but it's not so nice when the extra large bills start coming in the mail. Try staying warm and holding on to some of your hard-earned cash this season by following these easy tips in three big expense areas.
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

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.
Giving up disposable products, plastic shopping bags and other
"conveniences" of modern-day life can be challenging, because we
think they make our lives easier. The New Year is a great time to
challenge those perceptions.
Here are a handful of quick, eco-friendly resolutions that might
even make your life a little easier.
Buy in bulk
You'll pay less per pound of food, and make fewer trips to the
store, when you buy in bulk. These airtight glass canisters make storing your
extra non-perishables easy; you might need freezer bags, or even a
vacuum sealer, for perishable items.
Caring for pets can be an added expense many families can't
handle. We have two Labrador retrievers and sometimes when I
think about how much money they cost us it depresses me. Then
I realize how much joy they bring into our lives, and I realize for
us the cost is worth it. We do try to make our pet owning
expenses as small and as eco-friendly as possible.
Here are some things we do to help reduce their environmental
impact and keep our pet budget under control:
