Everyone likes saving money. It’s almost like earning money except that it’s often easier. We go out to work and most of us think we ought to paid more but if you break down what you spend each month you’d probably be surprised at how much you could save. Often all it takes is a little bit of research and you could save enough cash every month that it would equate to a significant pay rise.
Independent software developer Graham Haley has a couple of different apps available to help you look after the pennies. This one enables you to monitor the usage of water and energy in your household. These values can be displayed by day, week, month or year and are all shown in easy to read graph form. Figures are shown against average figures so you can see whether your usage is higher or lower than the norm. Furthermore when you have two or more years data you can then compare your own figures year on year to see how much if it all your usage has changed. You can then compare costs with alternative energy providers to see if you can save money by switching.
