I’ve always heard that you could save money on your electricity bill by switching lightbulbs, but I’ve never really looked into it. Â I just kind of assumed it was true, but never really understood how much you can actually save by switching to energy saving light bulbs. Â Light bulbs are one of those things that we have to purchase, but are hardly on sale at a really low stockup price. Â I always usually just grab the cheapest ones with the most wattage – until now.
After looking at the GE Energy Savings Calculator I am amazed at the savings that is possible just by switching to GE Energy Saving Bulbs. Â After running it through the handy dandy GE Energy Savings Calculator I determined that I can save up to $640 per year just by switching bulbs! Â That is a huge savings!
I had a great time with the kiddos creating a info board to show all the savings we could see by switching to GE Energy Saving Bulbs. Â We headed to Walmart and picked up some Elmer’s Supplies to make our creation. Â I decided to demonstrate the savings with 3 different types of bulbs – CFL, Halogen, and LED. Â Much needed supplies for my project were Elmer’s Glue and an Elmer’s tri-fold display board.
My kiddos were impressed with my crafty skills and Bryan was impressed with the potential savings! Â The light bulb was a huge hit. Â I got compliments from at least 4 different little people – “Nice, Lightbulb Mom”. Â 🙂
What would you do with an extra $330 per year??!!?? Â A great use for that extra savings would be to use it for good! Â I picked up a few extra Elmer’s Supplies to make a donation to our local Homeschool Group. Â My family attends there, and they are always appreciative of donations!
