going to begin to climb. A few small changes can reduce the amount
of energy you use. Here are some tips to help you decrease your
energy consumption and save money on your utility bills.
Put on a sweater and lower you thermostat. Set
your thermostat for between 65 - 68 degrees during the day and
lower it to 62 degrees while you sleep or are at work. If you have
a programmable thermostat, you can set it up now and not have to
worry about lowering and raising the temperature throughout the
Check the weather stripping around your doors and
windows. On a windy day, run your hand around the seams of
your windows and doors to see if you feel any drafts. If you do,

... Depending on the plant, it may look sparse right now but will get bigger over time. Give it some time to grow and you'll be glad that you didn't buy more than you needed (more unnecessary plants can lead to more maintenance).
4. Get professional advice. When I went to the nursery, I wanted something that was relatively low maintenance, had some color to it (preferably vibrant colors), stayed on the shorter side (less than 2 feet tall at full growth) and would survive the hot summers.
After figuring out if I had full sun, shade or a mix of both, I was shown a couple of options that would work with my requirements.

A recent study showed that bed bugs take longer to find a place to bite on hairy arms vs. non-hairy arms. However, this doesn't mean that people who have hair won't get bitten. They just have more time to escape. If all this bed bug talk is starting to gross you out, here are some preventative measures you can take to prevent an infestation in your home.
... It can be done, it take almost no battery power or space, so why doesn't every phone have one?
2. Camp Stove or Gas Grill. Depending on how you normally cook, you could be without hot meals for days or weeks in the event of widespread power outages. If you have a backyard gas grill or a portable camp stove, you can still have hot meals in the meantime.
It's not a bad idea to make sure the tank is full when you hear of oncoming bad weather. If you already have a gas stove in your kitchen you can skip this item but not the next one.
3. Matches. There will be candles to light. If you have gas appliances, there's a good chance pilot lights will need to be re-lit. If ...
... I felt like a more productive person in a clean living space. While it was not very expensive I knew it wasn't necessary when things like electricity and paying my mortgage were in jeopardy. So for the last five months I have been cleaning my own place. And I will be the first to admit--I am not nearly as good as it as they are.
My financial situation is better now but I still haven't reached the level where I can make the call, the one I want to make so badly, and have those amazing people come back and make my life easier. But with every penny I save I am one step closer.
