Save money in your home - Bedroom

This week we are looking at ways to save money in your bedroom.

  1. Use the appropriate tog quilt - make sure you add a heavier weight quilt on to your bed in the autumn or if you do not have a heavier one, then layer up with flannel sheets and blankets.
  2. Use a hot water bottle in your bed.
  3. Line your curtains or add a blind
  4. Shut your curtains at dusk.
  5. Fit programmable radiator valves. These will allow you to set different heating patterns for every room in the house, so you don't have to go round turning the radiator valves up and down throughout the day.
  6. Turn your mattress regularly.  This extend the life of your mattress by regularly turning it. Some mattresses can be turned and flipped – others only turned – so check with your manufacturer.
  7. Turn off lights when not in the room.
  8. Get into the habit of keeping doors closed.
  9. If you have a spare room why not consider renting it out.
  10. Wear socks to bed in cold weather to keep your feet warm.  Appently people with warm feet get to sleep 20 minutes faster than people with cold feet!

  2. Great post. Thanks for sharing these tips. I find having long curtains a problem as they cover they radiator so I tuck them behind.

  3. To keep you warmer at night place a spare duvet over your mattress instead of a base sheet. It is wonderfully comforty and warmer too

Dumping the tumble dryer and Ecoforce giveaway

We have a tumble dryer, but it broke before christmas and we  couldn't afford to get it repaired, so I have been managing with an old fashioned wooden clothes rail and hanging bedding over the doors to dry, This last would of weeks however, I have been hanging the washing outside and it has been drying much quicker and with less creases, so I am going to take the plunge and instead of getting the dryer replaced I am going to give it away. Ecoforce heard me on twitter bemoaning the fact that I was chasing laundry round the garden as my pegs were not working and very kindly sent me some of their Ecoforce pegs to try and they have been fab. So in conjunction with Ecoforce I have a year's supply of green cleaning and washing up wonder products worth £50 comprising the following: EcoForce Peg Basket x 1 EcoForce Clothes Line x1 EcoForce Pegs x 2 packs Several of each of: EcoForce sponges, scourers, cloths, duster and bag grips Dishmatic Dishmatic Refills x
