Cost-cutting at home - Alexandoy - 06-24-2018

Our consumption of electricity and water are always monitored. No matter how small the savings, it matters to us because it is better to develop a frugal habit instead of being extravagant. On focus are the lights and electric fan. We had changed our lighting to the LED that is 40% cheaper than the ordinary CFL bulbs. With the use of water, irrigating the plants are excessive during the dry summer but it is compensated when the rains come. We save rainwater for watering the plants. We also use the laundry water for watering the surroundings to deaden the heat during the hot days.

I love your idea about saving the rain water. I really wish that even I could make any such provision in my house. Although I live in a joint family and monitoring a lot of control is not possible, but I try my best to cut off unwanted expenditure of all the fuels. In addition to it, I dislike wasting even a grain food. I make sure that everything gets consumed in proper amounts and at proper time.
