Turn that heating down.
Turning your thermostat down by as little as 1°C can save you as much as £60 per year.
Switch off not standby
Don't leave appliances on standby mode, always unplug them or turn them off at the socket when you are not using them as some continue to use electricity.
Love your washing line
