*** I re-use plastic or bottle containers at home. This way my household don’t add up to the burden of garbage management in my city; I turn off the lights when they are not in use; most of the light bulbs that we use at home are energy savers; except for important assignments, we don’t allow kids to stay as long as they want in front of the computer.

I’m now sharing this tag to all responsible inhabitants of Mother Earth, that means YOU! Come on grab the tag now and do your share. Show that you care. 🙂

Facelift

For a long while, hubby and I have been planning to do a little renovation at home. We are supposed to start painting the chipped paints on our bedroom wall. The chipped paint makes the wall look dirty. After the prospect of repainting, we will be moving out old stuff to organize and maximize the space. Hubby is more skillful when it comes to arranging furniture so I will leave it up to him. I’m thinking of placing a study corner for my kids. This will entail buying pieces of office furniture like table, chairs and cabinet. The study table should not be too wide or narrow to hold my kids’ things. Finally, our dream to give our house a facelift will be realized. However, we have to delay it a little because we need to prioritize the kids’ tuition. Their school is already accepting enrollees this month.

Scorching heat

We are using two electric fans at home but they don’t help eliminate the scorching heat that we are experiencing from high noon onwards. The additional fan adds to our power consumption which also means additional power charges and burden to our pocket. To address the problem, we are considering buying Minka Aire fans to conserve energy and save money.
FANHubby said we should have installed ceiling fans before. Ceiling fans have more benefits compared to their conventional counterparts (stand fan and desk fan). They are space saver; at least 4 degrees cooler; dissuade flying pests from entering the house especially the kitchen area; if use in colder months, the moving air from ceiling fan helps distributes the warm air coming from the heat stove; and the power consumption it generates is lower as compared to air conditioner. So don’t you think having ceiling fans at home is a practical solution to beat the summer heat and conserve energy as well?
