Innovative and Exciting New Ways to Conserve Energy
New Ways to Conserve Energy
Do you want to think outside the box? Do you want to find exciting new ways to conserve energy? Are you tired of spending money on that pesky electric bill? Do you geniunely care about the environment? My friend, you've almost come to the right place! I am here to sort of help you save money by using less energy.
When I say we are going to think outside the box today, boy, do I ever mean it. Forget those silly little ideas about turning off lights when you leave the room. We are going much further than that. I intend to take your electric bill down to practically nothing. My friend, we are going to be conserving energy in a major way today if you follow my helpful tips.
Hot or Cold Food - Who Needs It?
The first thing we are going eliminate to help you conserve energy are all those annoying kitchen appliances. You need to unplug your refrigerator and unplug your stove. Next, forget about that electric can opener, the microwave, and toaster oven. We are going appliance-free from now on!
Have you heard about eating nothing but raw vegetables? You are going to start with that diet right now. You are going to be so healthy in no time. Have you ever wanted to go vegan? Now is the time to start. After all, you can't have meat or dairy products without a fridge, so welcome to your new lifestyle.
You are, however, allowed items like granola bars, bread, cereal, etc. You can even go to restaurants when you feel like eating something cooked. You just can't take any leftovers home to put in a refrigerator, because... well, it isn't going to be plugged in anymore. Oh yeah, it is all about breads and fruits and veggies from now on. Good times, good times.
Keep the Lights Off
Do you like candles? I'll bet you do. If not, you'd better start. No more lamps for you, my friend! Gather some candles and sit in the dark. The best part of all of this is, in the summer, most areas stay light for a long time. You won't even need to break out the candles or the flashlights until around 9 p.m. anyway.
You might also want to invest in some latterns. They can add a fun, 19th century look to your home. Don't forget all the fun you can have in October. Jack 'o Latterns make a fun decoration, but also look excellent with candles.
Turn Off the Electric Heat
Do you use electric heat as your primary heat source in your home? Well, not anymore! For that matter, oil heat and all the other options are not helping the environment too much either. So guess what? Embrace the cold! For that matter, if it gets really cold in the winter, you can use the snow to keep your food cold since you can't use your fridge any longer. Awesome! That is a win-win right there.
After all, Snuggies and Forever Lazy pjs are popular for a reason. Everyone is buying them because no one can afford heat any longer and you can wear a Forever Lazy while using your Snuggie. This is the perfect solution! Also, if you've already lit a number of candles in your home, you can gather around them for warmth. You see how this is all working out perfectly?
Use the Library
The library is a lovely, quiet spot with working computers, lights, books, and heat in the winter and AC in the summer. Therefore, this is the place where you should start spending some quality time. You can use their computers instead of using your own and you can borrow books to read at your home. If you can't see the books due to that whole "no lamp" rule or you don't have enough candles, stay in the library reading books until it closes.
Did you know many libraries have coffee shops now? Oh yes, this is the place to get some warm coffee, too. You didn't think I was going to allow you to run the coffee maker, now did you? Just imagine all of the new friends you will make while buying coffee and hanging out near the heating vent just to get warm. I am sure they will applaud your innovative new lifestyle.
Stop Watching TV
Oh, wait. Now this has all gotten out of hand. All of this extreme energy conservation stuff seemed like a good idea when I got started, but I am not giving up my TV. I don't mind sitting in my livingroom changing the channels on my remote control with gloved hands, but giving up the TV completely is just not working out for me. I am going to have to come up with some new ways to conserve energy.
Does anyone know how to produce energy using a hamster wheel? Once I get that worked out, my next hub "Even More Innovative and Exciting Ways to Conserve Energy" will be released. Now, time for me to get some wires, attach them to my hamster's wheel, and begin training my hamster, Mimi. She doesn't know it yet, but she is totally going to help me go green.
