  1. Bid farewell to high power bill. This generating power technique “boma fetching unique” (Google it) can help you create your own power and save a lot of money. With a few simple tricks and minor adjustments to the way you operate your home appliances, you can drive your energy costs down.

  2. I've always done these things, but then last year I had a problem with mould in my bedroom. Now there were a lot of factors that went into that, but after all these years of being careful, I was also told to heat my house more! So if you are layering up and keeping the temp low, make sure you also:

    1) Keep rooms well ventilated – apparently my grandparents had the right idea about opening the window for 15-30mins every day even in winter. This is especially important if you have double glazing.
    2) Keep furniture a little away from the wall. Do not store things under your bed (this is the area of the bedroom that you/others breathe most, and there is therefore most moisture).
    3) Keep an eye on outside walls, and especially places where two outside walls meet. Also check behind furniture, the corners of rooms & under bed regularly.
    4) If there is too much humidity in the room, you may need a dehumidifier, even in colder climates.
    5) As well as the obvious sources of moisture like cooking and showering, breathing also gives off moisture, so be especially aware of rooms you/others spend a lot of time in.
    6) Be especially aware of these things if you have a damp winter. Even if these are normally not issues for you, a damp winter can make all the difference (I'd been in this apartment 5 years without any major problems.
    7) If you do find mould, get professional advice (I didn't and only realised afterwards that some moulds can have especially bad effects on your health.)
    8) Ideally keep anything that might be especially susceptible to mould in a sealed container (eg plastic box with lid), NOT in anything made from natural materials (cardboard box, fabric bag, wicker basket etc). Especially do this for anything that is precious to you, eg family heirlooms, special outfits, etc. Those vacuum pack bags are great for this too. This has the added advantage of protecting from moths (which happened to a friend) and making it easier to move house!

  3. I have made double bed & lap quilts using everything from furnishing fabrics to old ties to curtain materials, using old blankets (sold for 50p -£1 in charity shops as 'dog blankets') for years. Underneath my Turkish  & Chinese carpets I layer newspaper to reduce the cold from concrete floors, and I  have made decorative wall hangings from mixed yarns, including Rya & other rug wool, silk & cotton threads – all bought remaindered when craft shops closed down, or from charity shops. These keep the cold from seeping in through the walls of old, uninsulated buildings – such as private landlord tenancies. I also make tagines or casseroles which, cooked at a very low temperature throughout the day, both warm my accommodation and provide a hot meal -the leftovers being frozen if not used the next day

  4. Sadly in NI. There isn't much money in switching energy companies. We have one company that generates power for us. There are a couple of interconnectors between Scotland and Ireland. But both are expense ways of transferring power, so offer little in competition. 🙁

    Also, regarding cloth on doors, curtains for your doors work great too. Easier than laying a bundle of cloth down. My grandmother also used to have curtains for her hallway. That was to prevent drafts through the house. I can remember the fabric being lush.
