Thrifty tips: Beating the Heat
AC costs money!! :
Close all blinds.
Not using the oven... except once in a while, making multiple favorites: crackers, cakes, cookies
Use range while using the oven.
Make on the range instead of baking: Boil squash, "baked" fruit, Pancakes (this one I might still use oven for timesaving)
Portable fan. 'Nuf said.
Showers in the afternoon.
Thaw frozen meat and veggies- don't just throw it on the burner! Partially thaw veggies in fridge.
Play in the rain.
Hang clothes - ironing is 1/4 cost of using the dryer.
