It is no secret that we’ve been spending a lot of time and energy finishing our basement recently. It is almost done and we are down to adding final touches. This includes putting in light bulbs. I did a little research before heading to the store and GE Energy Savings light bulbs offer a tremendous dollar savings and savings for the planet. Calculate your savings!
After seeing how much I could save in just the basement alone, I went off to the store to get some new light bulbs for the space and to replace my the current ones on our main level.
I found a huge selection including ones for the flood light.
I decided to buy some school supplies with the money I was saving to donate to H’s classroom. With the holidays coming up, they are doing a ton of projects and the teacher said they are running low on supplies already! I chose Elmer’s glue because I know the kids use a bunch of it. I really like the #GlueNGlitter so I picked some of that too.

Once home, we created a board to illustrate our savings using the thing my kids understand most: candy!
Our school supplies went into a cute little stocking to be taken to H’s class as a donation.

What a wonderful way to give back and save at the same time! I had to chuckle about your display board! Moms know what will hold their children’s attention through an important conservation lesson 🙂
