Green Tip Tuesday - That time of Year!

OMG! It was so cool today, literally! The tempatures this afternoon were in the low to mid 80's! For Texas that is borderline COLD! My Eli & I went outside to hang laundry and we played with the dog for a bit. After about 30 minutes our fingertips were cold, so it was time to go in.

Tomorrow is going to be even colder. We may have to wear a sweater, that is just crazy talk. But it feels like FALL!

Today's GREEN TIP is to save some energy and turn off the A/C! We have had it off since around noon. I'm sure that will save us atleast $20 bucks on the next bill. But anyways... we wanna save as much money as we can so whenever it's this temperature we turn off the A/C. I know some people aren't able to do this so how about just raising it up a degree or down depending on where you are.

A few weeks ago when we went to the Green Living Festival we were talking to someone who was talking about solar energy and she was saying that they leave their A/C at 75 and lower it to 72 at night... I hit hubs because we have it at 78 during the day and at 75 at night! haha. We laughed. Her bill was a bit higher than ours but she also said she had a two story house so yeah, they would need it cool to keep the whole house cooler. So we can't wait to get solar panels but that won't be for a few years.

Hope ya'll stay cool!
