As everyone likely knows, bills are never fun to pay. At one point or another I'm sure we've all taken a look at our utility bills and asked “How can it be this much?” If you're often busy it's not always easy to keep track of the things that raise your energy bills each month, but you might be surprised to find that there are a number of small, common sense methods of keeping the utility bill low and your wallet happy.
Today's infographic comes to us from Britain, but the tips that it gives to save money each month is sound advice anywhere. Turning off lights that aren't currently being used is always a good energy-saver, but I didn't know that closing curtains at night helps keep heat from escaping through the windows and ends up saving on electricity. Another tip that could help save on energy is keeping electronic devices (computers, TVs, etc.) off instead of on standby; I know I could benefit from that tip in particular.
