Are you leaving your computers and appliances on or plugged in 24/7 even when you are away from home and/or sleeping? Why not get in the habit of unplugging rarely used items like toasters, computer printers and even unnecessary cordless phone handsets? What if you start to use the power saving features on your computers and turn off those surge protectors for the sixteen or more hours each day when not used and even more when not used daily? How often do you make toast? Why not make a toast...

I found this Vampire Calculator from Duke Energy that I want to share ... This cool tool says it best, " Slay Your Energy Vampires The average U.S household spends $100 a year on plugged-in electronics they aren't using. Spooky, right? Tell us what you've got, and we'll show you how much you could save by pulling the plug." https://www.duke-energy.com/en...e0XbV6nyD9RLAzKXuYj4

Note: I have communicated with people who have had energy audits (free) from their electric suppliers and who have been given some cool freebies... smart bulbs, surge protectors and even one who was given a free replacement Nest Thermostat. Everyone's mileage may vary but it does not hurt to ask for the free audits just for the professional testing and advice on ways to conserve energy and money.

Check with your utility to see if they offer rebates for upgrading to energy efficient appliances and/or LED light bulbs. Some utilities give them away for free. Some will even give you power strips that have a "sleep" mode if you forget to turn them off. They want to get load offline, so they are happy to help you reduce your KWH usage.

Thanks for all the info. It is something I guess I don't pay as much attention to as I should. I will have to take a closer look at my energy consumption now and see how I can save more energy.

I just tried out Get Upside the other day. It is not available in my area but I was traveling so I figured I would give it a shot. But every time I tried to upload my receipt it would fail, and since there is a time limit, I wasn't able to get my reward. Not a great first time experience. I just started using a newly launched app that gives cashback for purchases with many big retailers and in the future they are introducing more local ones as well as a cryptocurrency that you will also...

@Ana the cashback is not that much honestly and you have to have $20 before you cash out but most cashback sites have a minimum. I have had the most success by referring other people.

A lot of the cash back apps don't seem to require you go to the app before shopping. You just link your credit card, forget about it, and when you happen to be at that store, use the credit card. I have Dosh. I got $5 for signing up and just got 2% on a Sam's Club purchase. There aren't that many offers in my area, and some offers aren't available from my local franchisee (Dunkin Donuts, for example, is listed, but my local Dunkin isn't listed as a local merchant.) Swagbucks has some shop...

We did some work with Shopkick (I work at The Penny Hoarder) and I couldn't believe how loyal their users are -- they have a serious fan base! People who use it absolutely love Shopkick, so much that they sometimes spot each other at stores. Something interesting I didn't expect was that a number of the people we interviewed use the app not only to earn/save money (by earning kicks and redeeming for gift cards) but also to lose weight, because the app motivates them to walk a lot.

Checkout 51, Savingstar You can do surveys and earn gift cards too. I have good luck on Pinecone and MyPoints and Microsoft rewards(I do their daily searches and quizzes. It only takes a few minutes in the morning and I earn enough points for a $10 gift card every month).

Have you heard of imoney? You earn cash, it adds up fast and you’re not doing surveys or scanning or seeds or anything like that. You’re doing simple tasks involving the Apple App Store. It is for iPhone users only and you can make extra for referrals on top of what you’re already making for doing the tasks. This is probably my favorite one and I’ve done a LOT of apps!

I use an app called SPENT Money, which is a cashback app. It gives 1 percent back at Whole Foods and also gives money back for Uber. And it does the data entry for you. It pays out via PayPal.

Did you know that the average cable or satellite TV box with DVR costs around $8 a month to have on 24/7? Did you know that some makes and models of these boxes use more or less than others? Did you know that many states have deregulated energy costs, allowing consumers to shop for lower per kilowatt hour rates? Did you know that there are simple swaps we can all make to reduce our usage? That's as true with electric as water as natural gas... and some swaps to habits can add up to huge...

Ebates - earn money when you shop via stores on Ebates. Ibotta is a great way to earn money while you shop. Check out Fetch Rewards. Turn any grocery receipt into savings! Shopkick - Earn points toward a free gift card while you shop in stores or online - Get Upside - earn money back when you get gas for your car. I can privately send you the links to the apps with my referral codes in which you will earn a bonus. Just let me know. Are there any others that I should check out?

Realistically, going out less saves me money. Since I get reimbursed for work trips, I group errands together. I hope to get a hybrid vehicle in the near future.

I live in South Texas, and the price of regular as of 5-18-22 was between $3.99 and $4.19 a gallon in my county. To save money at the pump, use a rewards card. Next, drive the speed limit or drive slower to help save gas. Combine errands, and pay bills online. Don't let your vehicle idle for too long (my 2018 SUV when stopped at a red light, the engine shuts off and starts back up when my foot is on/off the brake pedal) ie, no need to run the car until it cools down inside, open the...

I live in Portland, Oregon & our gas precious have remained steady between $4.79 and $5.39 a gallon. I use a rewards card that gives you gas points at a local big box store as often as I can & I've also cut down on unnecessary travel. I am fortunate that I get a mileage benefit with my job which helps some, but I only receive it if I am traveling with my client, not to & from their homes. (I work with autistic children & adults & have to travel to activities & appts).

The average is right on the money here in SW NH. I live VERY close to work and kids take the bus or ride bikes to school... But I do have one that is learning to drive so the practice hours are killing me with gas! But once we get through this, expenses will be a bit better. However, driving is really a joy for me, and I go for drives on the weekend. Like people who eat out or play video games, that's my recreation, so although I could cut back, I haven't yet.

I should also mention, that I get my gas either at Sam's Club or BJs which are the cheapest in town here. I use coupons, discounts, and rebates whenever possible. I keep my car well maintained so that I get the best possible gas mileage (which I track with every gas purchase.)

Hi! This won't change the gas prices where you are but maybe it'll help in knowing that although the cost is seemingly outrageous all over at least you're not in LA paying $6+/gal. The lowest I've seen recently is $6.09 and yet the traffic is as bad as ever. Sending good vibes to everyone & hope we all get through this as unscathed as possible.

Gas is $4.79 per gal in my town in SW New Mexico. I haven't seen $5 per gal yet and hope I don't but it's edging up close. I live in a small town of about 14,000 population and if we can walk or ride our bikes we do to avoid driving much.
