Kids have an insatiable hunger for using electricity, and as such they leave lights on in their wake.
I don’t need to tell you lighting a home costs you money, the simple solution is to trail behind them and turn them off.
A few other things you can do are:
- Open the blinds or curtains before the lights even go on.
- Use energy efficient lights, they cost less to run and typically let longer than older globes.
- Use one light when normal five are used, often rooms will have a series of lights, if they are on different switches don’t turn them all on, you may only need a small percentage to illuminate the room sufficiently.
Money can be better spent on food and education, so turn lights off when not in use.
