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!

  1. Great tips I do near enough all of these :)

  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

Bissell Vac and Steam Machine Review and Giveaway

I have hard floors downstairs which I love.  They are much more practical than carpet with 2 mucky boys and a dog. Over the past 8 years I have tried all sorts of ways to keep them clean and I think I have finally found the product that does that for me. It is the  Bissell Vac and Steam Machine .  This amazing suel action machine vacuums and steam cleans either independently or at the same time.  It means that I have done away with my vacuum and steam cleaner downstairs (which I gave to my brother in law). What I like: You can either vacuum or steam clean or do both It is lightweight and easy to manoeuvre The handle is adjustable great for a home with people of different heights and for getting the kids involved. You need no chemicals The pads are washable and reusable It comes with a two year guarantee It warms up fast (within 30 seconds) so no long wait to start cleaning It costs under £100 It is space saving.  No need for a separate vacuum, steam cleaner or mop. 

Tissue paper poppy badges

Remembrance Sunday will soon be upon us and my boys take part in the annual church service and march as Beavers. This year MadDad will also be marching in his capacity as Manager of the U7's football team.  We are great believers in remembering what people have done for us and the boys have been busy making tissue paper poppies at Beavers.
