As many articles explain at the start of the new year, this is a good time to look at your budget and consider some instant gratification with immediate savings. Here are a few easy money-saving tips:
First, make sure to shop your electric rate. The website
www.energizect.com allows you to choose your supplier based on rates and also provide helpful energy saving tips. As of the start of the year, Eversource was charging 10.14 cents compared to other suppliers with rates as low as 7.99. Cut your cable bill by subscribing to streaming services such as Sling TV, Hulu Live TV, Netflix, and HBO. If you subscribed to all of those services, the bill would be around $88. Cable starts at around $100. Remember that cutting cable doesn’t mean you lose basic TV; you’ll still receive your local channels.
Finally, check with your insurance agent about installing security cameras and smoke detectors; they could save you more than the cost of the equipment and installation.
