There are a lot of little things you can do to help reduce your housing costs. They may seems small, but a small change can add up to big savings in the long run.


  • Unplug electronics and small appliances when not in use.
  • Turn off lights when not in use.
  • Take shorter showers
  • Turn off the tap while shaving, washing hands, or brushing teeth.
  • Only run the dishwasher, washing machine, and dryer when they are full.


  • Do not flush paper towels, diapers, or condoms down the toilet/sink.
  • Store used oil in a tin/glass container instead of pouring the oil down the drain.
