Do any SAHM catch yourelf turning down the heat in the daytime when it is just you. Or not flushing the toilet everytime during the day. Some thing to try to save a few dollars.

  • Not flushing your toliet every time is good for the environment as it saves water. We installed an environmentally friendly toliet in our one bathroom and plan to replace the others as well. It has two flush settings -- one for liquids and one for solids and only uses the appropriate amount of water for each.

  • I get made fun of all the time for not flushing the toilet everytime!!! And yes generally turn the heat down when it's just me or when I leave for an afternoon. If my daughter is not home I leave lights off too....if she home she turns them all on!!!

  • Turning the heat down.. yep! but then I'd do it even if my family was here. Really the only time we splurge on heat is when we have guests over.

    The toilet on the other hand, nope that gets flushed every time! we've got a 3 year old running around and you never know when he'll decide to go fishing.
