Knowing how to save money is being increasingly sought after by Brazilians, the bills keep coming and it is necessary to minimize spending more and more. As a result, some appliances demand more energy than others and it is exactly these that we should pay attention to:
Beware of the Freezer
Many families still use the freezer in their kitchens, we are not talking about the ones attached to the refrigerators, but the ones that are part. Although they give more space for food that needs to be frozen, freezers have a high energy consumption.

Invest in natural lighting
A light bulb turned on unnecessarily can hurt your pocket at the end of the month, so it is important to explore the use of natural lighting. Therefore, large windows and glass are the new best friends of those who want to save money.
Your tv is not on, but in fact it is
