  • This time of year my email inbox gets flooded with holiday tips.
    Unless they involve tips to get free cookies or pie I generally delete them without even opening them.
    However, I got one the other day from strategy consultant Lisa McLeod that caught my attention. She writes a weekly column, usually about success in business, but sometimes she writes about more general topics, like her most recent one: “Tips for a Horrible Holiday.”

  • With the winter we have had so far, chances are you’ve seen at least one or two high heating bills. While home heating costs can put a strain on your wallet during the winter, you can do certain things to help save money while still keeping your home warm.

    Sunlight, even in the winter, is a great way to add natural, free warmth to your home. Open your blinds and curtains during the day, particularly on south-facing walls as they get the most exposure to the sun. As the sun sets, close them to help trap in the warmth.

  • Standby generators provide emergency electrical power during disruptions caused by winter storms and other disasters. However, you need to take some special precautions to ensure safe, efficient operation of these generators.

    Purchase a generator that will supply more than what you need, so you don’t blow a fuse or damage the equipment you plan on attaching to the generator. You’ll find power information on the labels of appliances, lighting and other equipment. For example, the wattage on a light bulb indicates the amount of power it needs.
