“Every year, I cover my windows using a 3M Indoor Window Insulator Kit. It works! It keeps the cold air out and my heating bills down.”
Better yet? Try investing in new, energy-efficient windows with a Home Equity Loan from Connexus. You’ll love the visual improvement, a cozier feel, and you’ll pay less in your monthly heating bill.
“I insulate all of my exterior doors and the door leading to our attic. I use a one-inch foam seal. Usually around mid-September, I inspect all of my attic’s insulation and check for leaks.”
Connexus can help provide funds for insulation, roof repairs, or new shingles. See us for a low-cost loan to get it done.
“I admit it, I’m an avid couponer. It cuts down on my grocery bill and provides me with a challenge to see how much I can save. For the best coupons, my favorite sites are coupons.com and Frugaa. And, I almost always buy store versus name brands.”
“Since I was a kid, I’ve loved to barter. While it caused my family some frustration, it’s a useful skill to have now. I’ve negotiated lower payments on my cable bill and car insurance.
I’ve also saved on the purchase price of my car. The key? Simply be willing to change providers – you’ll see how agreeable companies can become to keep you as a customer.”
“I recycle everything. From the plastic bags at the grocery store to deli meat food storage containers. I not only save, but I feel good by reducing my carbon footprint.”

“I put most every purchase, especially expensive purchases, to my 48-hour rule. I wait 48 hours to make a purchase. If I truly want it, I’ll get it. Often, I realize I don’t need to spend the money or want the item.”
