In the midst of the daily rush, we sometimes do not realize how much we spend in everyday things, such as the bath that is taken or the water that is drunk. This lack of control, willing or not, raises monthly expenses, turns spending into habit, and damage usually reveals when the bill arrives.
If this is your reality, we have good news to give you: there are some interesting devices, technologies and strategies that help – and a lot – in the domestic economy.
A gallon of mineral water costs up to $ 12.00 depending on the region, and despite the high price, this has been one of the main options for Brazilian families, due to the practicality and seemingly harmless value to the budget.
If we stop to analyze, buying gallons of water is not as good a deal as it sounds. A family of three consumes, on average, two bottles per week. This is $ 48.00 per month. Would not it be smarter, economical and effective to invest in a filter to drink fresh and healthy water without spending so much? There are filtration devices that can be coupled even to the tap. In addition, there are options that offer natural or chilled water.
Line filter and programmable thermostats
Line filtering is an efficient way to save energy, as well as being a means of protecting equipment against voltage surges and lightning strikes. This filter is much more than a simple extension, since the use of this accessory can generate the saving of up to 30% in the light bill.
Acquiring an electric thermostat is also a good option as this unit can be connected to your air conditioning equipment in order to increase the home economy. Thermostats are devices that can be programmed to control the temperature by turning the power on and off at specific times.
Dual chip cell phone
Mobile operators live on doing promotions, but the advantage that one presents, lacks the other. To get around this situation and enjoy the best of each company, have a dual-chip device. Choose an operator that offers low rates for local calls and another that offers good prices for long distance or maybe an Internet and SMS package. There are also unlimited plans to talk to the same carrier. Analyze your consumption profile and choose the chips according to your real needs.
We live in modern times, in which information is increasingly fast and accessible. In this context, mobile technology and applications may be very useful, including to save money. A good example of this are the apps that serve to compare prices and find products with the best cost benefit.
Voip, Skipe and the like
