If like me you’re a busy mum running after 2 kids the last thing on your mind will be your energy bill, until the bill arrives on your door step.  Then its panic stations, how did this bill get so high what did we do differently this quarter to make it so high?

If these are questions you find you are asking your self don't panic, sometimes it simply the rising cost of electricity that has caused your bill to jump, or it's simply a seasonal adjustment.

Here are a few tips to keep those energy bills in check:

  • Call your energy supplier and ask for a better deal tell them you’re thinking of switching and you’ll find they will give you a discount.
  • Not happy with the discount then visit a comparison website and make the switch to another company you can save $100’s on your electricity bills.
  • Where possible go for solar, even if you don’t have solar panels on your home you can get a Solar Hot water system or install solar lights in your garden.
  • Line drying your clothes not only saves you on your energy bills by up to $200 a year but also cuts your greenhouse gas emissions.  Toddlers love to be helpful so get them involved.
  • TV can be a bit of a life saver for mums during the day when you need 15 mins peace and quiet, but I know sometimes it gets left on without thinking while you and your kids have moved on to another task.  So why not try and limit the time during the day you have the TV on. Have some rainy day activities planned so you don’t all have to sit in front of the box all day long.  My favourite rainy day activity is building a cubby house under our dining table my little girl plays in there for hours!
  • Stand by power zaps $100’s of your hard earned dollars on electricity every year so always switch everything off!
  • Behind our TV looks a bit like spaghetti junction, if yours is the same never fear, you can invest in a stand by switch that will switch it off automatically for you.  You’ll also prevent straining your back crawling around obstacles to reach the switches.

These simple tips can shave $100’s off your energy bills every quarter, would love to know what you think of my energy tips or if you have any to share your self.

Kind Regards,
