Sunday Savings on the Homestead Week 3: Turn Down The Thermostat!

Every Sunday I will be posting a Sunday Savings on the Homestead. This posts will concentrate on one money saving thing you and I can do to save money for the week. Some will be easy, some will be be a bit difficult, and all will concentrate on one way to save money for the week. Please join me in trying to live a frugal life in 2015!

We all like to be warm in the winter. Some people like a cooler house and some people like a warmer house. I like a warmer house, but my budget does not like a warmer house. So I try to keep the thermostat set to 66-68 degrees. 

Two weeks ago, however, I caved. It was so cold! My house was freezing so I turned it up to 70 degrees. Being that high took the edge off of the chilly. This week's temperatures are much more mild so...

down goes the thermostat! Back to 68 degrees which is normal for my household. Overnight, I will turn it down to 65 degrees. 

This week's Sunday Savings on the Homestead is to turn down the thermostat by at least two degrees for the week. See if you like it and can handle it. Then try for two weeks or the rest of the winter!

By turning down the thermostat, you will save money on your utility or gas bill which will add more money to your budget!
