The 10% Rule
If you are looking to start saving money or using less of things, start with 10% and make a rule in your life to cut out or cut back by 10%. Do it with everything from thermostat temperature to detergent to toothpaste.
Some ideas include:
- Set your thermostat 10% lower at night
- Use 10% less toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, etc.
- Check your water heater temperature, it could work just as well with a 10% lower temperature
- Eat 10% less food
- Use 10% dishwasher detergent, laundry soap, fabric softener, etc.
- Watch 10% less TV
