Tip Tuesday Chirstmas 2012 Style

I have a secret.

I know the best savings tip. Ever.

What is the best, most effective, super-duper, Christmas style, awesomest(Is that even a word? We don't care because we'll be saving so much money) money saving tip ever?

Stay home! And don't shop electronically while you're there!

Christmas has never been about money anyhow. Put away the credit cards, sit in the same room with someone and share about your lives. Watch Charlie Brown and It's a Wonderful Life while your husband does impressions of Jimmy Stewart just like the first Christmas you spent together. <3

This is the gift you'll actually remember next year and ask for again.

Merry Christmas. K.

Tip Tuesday 12-18-2012

Schedule your families yearly health check ups.

Right in the middle of cold and flu season we travel to new places for holiday gatherings and see lots of new people, exposing us to lots of new germs.

Don't wait until you have a problem that needs fixing. Stay preventative.

Eat your favorite holiday treats on the buffet but don't completely skip the veggie trays and fruit salads or you may be sneezing in the new year. K.

Only 7 days until Christmas! Are you still shopping for gifts? Or have you been done for months? Leave a comment and let me know, it's the best gift to give a blogger ;)

Ceiling fans! Not just for the summertime!

Go here to find out which way the fan should turn to help circulate the air in the winter.

This goes right along with last weeks tip about turning down your thermostat. Have you tried it yet? Add in this ceiling fan tip to stay even warmer. K.

Tip Tuesday 12-04-2012

Lower your heating bill a great deal by setting the thermostat just two degrees lower.

C'mon, it's only TWO degrees, you can do this!

When you set your thermostat to 72 degrees or higher it causes heat strips to kick in...

..It works harder. You pay more.

It's December, stop trying to make it July inside. :) Buy some slippers, use a blanket, sit that warm laptop on your lap, long into your bank account online and decide how to budget your savings. K.
