After listening to my refrigerator CONTINUOUSLY run (yes the coils are clean, AND it is well serviced), I began to think about a way to keep it from RUNNING so much!
I'm a single guy, and I shop for groceries for myself day to day, leaving my refrigerator NEAR EMPTY!
Although I'd LOVE to just unplug it, there are some food items that would be better off NOT MOLDY and HOT!
I came up with this GREAT way to save cash money by simply adding an item, or two to your REFRIGERATOR or FREEZER!
Step 1: EMPTY Space Equals WASTED MONEY!!
The refrigerator COMPRESSOR will operate much more frequently if there are FEWER items within to cool (I'll avoid getting into the SCIENCE of it ALL)
Step 2: A Pillow or Sleeping Bag Or...
Firstly I used a PILLOW, and it worked SO WELL that I thought I'd try my HIGH END, cold weather sleeping bag!
Step 3: PUT IT IN!!
I've found that in the TOP of the refrigerator the LIGHT was blocked by the BAG, in the bottom it's susceptible to drips and things (good sleeping bags come with WATERPROOF OR WATER RESISTANT sacks, and are easily washed clean)!
This is simple, and WORKS! I have reduced my electricity bill by at least $10.00 EVERY MONTH since doing this!
MORE BAGS = MORE $ SAVED!!
WHY WASTE MONEY?
