The Top Household Savings Tips

The cost of feeding, clothing, and providing a safe and comfortable house for your family can seem astronomical at times. Now what happens if you are currently enrolled at Maryville University in the Doctor of Education program so you don’t have the time available to have a full-time job? This is exactly why we’ve put together these tips that you can use to help save money in your household. These household savings will make it much easier to pay for your online EED program, and take the burden off your shoulders.

Cut Out the Bottled Water

Here’s an area most people don’t even think about but did you know that in a typical household it's common to spend about $5 a week on a case of bottled water? If your family goes through a lot of water, then you may in fact need to double that amount. Instead invest in a pitcher that filters tap water. The savings will add up very quickly.
If you like the convenience of bottled water, you can purchase a reusable insulated water bottle that you can take with you on the go.

Change Your TV Package/Plan

While it’s great to have endless channels on the television, the fact of the matter is that it can get pretty expensive. Instead you may want to look at streaming options such as Netflix or an Android Box, which will cost a fraction of the amount. As well you can watch fairly new release movies on these devices, which can help you cut back on entertainment spending.

Install Low-Flow Faucets

Many homeowners have started to notice the rather large increase in price over the past few years when it comes to their water bill. A great way to tackle savings in this area is to install low-flow water faucets. Just by doing this you will be able to save up to 60% on your water bill. This is also a quick and easy DIY project you can do yourself.

Stick to the List

When it comes to grocery shopping, this is another area you could save a lot of money. Instead of walking through the aisles aimlessly, write out a meal plan for the week in advance. From this meal plan you can then check what items you don’t currently have on hand, and put them on the list. When you do the shopping, you need to stick to the list and not be swayed by impulse items. Not only will this save you money on your grocery bill, it will also make sure that food isn’t going to waste – which is essentially throwing money out the window.

Install CFL Lightbulbs

We all know that it saves money to turn out the lights when you're not in a room, but how about saving money even when the lights are on? This can be done when you switch out all your old lightbulbs and replace them with compact fluorescent light (CFL). These lightbulbs use up to 75% less energy.

Simple Changes That Add Up

All it takes is some simple changes and new habits and it won’t be long until you start to see the savings add up.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
