With increasing concern for our planet’s climate and energy prices that are consistently on the rise, it pays to be prepared with ways to preserve energy at home. There are a number of different things you can do to reduce your power bills and your carbon footprint, both immediately and in the long-term.
Here are our top tips for conserving energy at home naturally -
If you’re not using it, turn it off. Keeping appliances turned on uses energy even when you’re not using them. TVs, DVD players and stereos all use energy even in standby mode. Make sure you turn everything off at the power point when you’re not using them to preserve energy and keep your costs down. To make it even easier, plug multiple appliances into a power board. You’ll be able to turn them off with just one switch.
Whilst Bug is not moving rooms since we moved to this house we have not done much to his bedroom, partly due to being restricted decorating wise as we rent as well as not needing to buy new furniture and bedroom accessories as he was happy with what he already had.
But with the impending arrival of Jelly Bean and the fact that Bug is growing up so fast, being unwavering with his tastes and likes we have decided to revive his bedroom and make it into a new bedroom perfect for a new big brother.
It may not be a 60-minute makeover, instead being a slow burner of a makeover thanks to the hecticness of family and getting ready for Jelly Bean’s arrival but below is my wishlist of furniture and bedroom accessories that I would love to get to transform Bug’s bedroom into the big boy bedroom he deserves.
As Bug is going through yet another growth spurt and is a tall boy the time has come for him to move from his cot bed to a big boy bed.
