Found A Deal With Ting.com – Save On Phone Charges

I am always looking for a deal – found one. Well someone told us about it so I checked it out. 




A phone company called ‘Ting‘. Best thing since sliced bread I believe. Only available for those in the States though (Sorry Aussie’s you are stuck with those uncompetitive, unco-operative phone companies and paying through the nose). We anticipate that we will save $50 a month at least, and we were already on a discounted program. The nice thing about it, you pay for what you use and you can go on the website and check up on your usage at anytime. (I know some companies offer this as well)

This is not one of those money making sales pitches.  The only benefit  is it does offer the usual ‘refer a friend’ and if someone joins you do get $50 off your phone bill. It is only a ‘one off’ thing.

We had a small problem in changing over and received instant help from someone who spoke the English we are used to (like from our own country – being USA).

If you are interested in saving on your phone bills it is worth checking out and compare with the company you are dealing with at the present moment. Better in your pocket than theirs.

Make sure you click on this link because it is worth $25 off a device or $25 in Ting credit to you when you sign up.

Saving Energy + Money

Here are some energy-saving tips from this Months Consumer Report.

Some of these tips you will already know and be implementing, but you may not be aware of how much you are saving and why.
There is also a great deal of saving information on this subject in my book “Simply Fantastic: Living Better on Less”. Pages 10 – 15.

Jettison the lead foot. Obeying the speed limits and avoiding hard acceleration and braking will add several mpg to the fuel efficiency of your midsized car. Also respecting the speed limit will save you that very expensive and getting more expensive speeding ticket from your friendly policeman (or not). Yearly saving $200

Fix leaky ducts. Pay a qualified heating and cooling pro to seal and insulate heating and cooling ducts that run through your home, especially in unconditioned spaces. Yearly saving $400

Adjust Modes. Manufacturers often ship television in the “Retail Mode” to ensure the best picture quality under bright showroom lights. The more efficient “Home Mode” is fine for most types of viewing. Yearly saving $30 – $60.

Tame hidden energy use. Between 5 – 10 percent of residential energy goes to devices that draw power when they are off or in a standby  mode. Video games are a major offender. Turn them off when you pry the controls out of your kid’s hands. Yearly saving $125.

Wash in Cold water. Cold water wash has proved to be better than hot to remove grass stain, wine and other tough spots. Using an 2X Ultra soap detergent is also a big help. Yearly savings $60.

Lightbulbs. The Ikea sparsam energy-saving porch bulb was the lowest-scoring CFL in the consumer report tests. Five of the 10 bulbs they tested failed before 3,000 hours. There is some question about the Energy star recommendation for CFLs. The environmental Protection Agency which oversees CFLs are planning to develop new Energy Star specifications that will go into effect in spring 2012.

Lowering Water Heater Temperature. You can lower your water-heating bills by lowering the Heaters temperature from 130F to 120F and insulating the water pipes.

Insulating attics, basements. Consumer Report says that you can save about $191 annually by insulating your attic, basements and other areas that may let heat escape.

Tip For Today « 9/01/2010

I hope you find these Tips of the day useful. Some feedback would be good.

The reason I do this, is that if your time, like mine, is full of “Stuff” our brains suffers from overload.
I just don’t get the time to read screens and screens of information. There is a lot of good information I miss because I put it aside to read it later. In most cases I don’t get back to it.
I do however find that small increments of information catches my eye and I tend to remember them or think to myself “I should do that, or that’s interesting I should post that as my readers may find that helpful, too.”

It might be that my attention span is a little short. I think we all suffer from this a little bit; we are doing one thing and our mind is thinking of the next project. We tend to multi task and not really focus on one thing.

Of course there are some articles that I do find easy to focus on. when I do I will usually pass them on to you, my readers.
I love new information in the health genre.
I love new ideas to save money, ways to help you get rid of your debts or at least reduce them.

I personally believe there is still tough times ahead still. We need to take responsibility for our debts and cost of living. We all need to make changes to protect ourselves from financial pain.

If we don’t do different nothing will change.

Enough from me, here is the “Tip of the Day.”

Check your hospital bill

According to Harvey Rosenfield of the Watchdog group, 97% of hospital bills are wrong. Less than 2% of those errors are in the patient’s favour. Average error: $1400.

Frequent mistake: Billing for items or services never delivered. [
lab work, medication, thermometers, wheelchairs, etc]

Self-defense: Insist on completely itemized bills and review them carefully
