I have gradually been trying to use more appliances on Economy 7 cheaper electricity over night.
I have so far managed to increase the amount used overnight to 30% on average, compared to only 15% this time last year.
There hasn't been many major changes, just making sure the dishwasher , washing machine and bread machine runs overnight. We don't own a tumble dryer and I line dry as much as is possible or use the indoor airer.
We have already switched all our bulbs which can be to the "eco" variety.
The other main area is to make sure that the boys don't leave their tv's and games consoles on standby when they have finished with them.
I'm a 45 year old SAHM,although I do now work parttime as a dinner lady; partner to Dave for over 20 years who is the love of my life. Mother to 2 wonderful boys Thomas and David.We live in the UK in a small village (pub, village school and church - no shops) approx 15 miles from nearest town.
I enjoy cooking, card making and reading, and trying to do my bit for the environment and organic living.
