The company recommends cooking in bulk and microwaving the meals for two nights a week as ‘the microwave is a far more  efficient way to heat food than the oven and cooking in bulk could save you £20 a year’.

First Utility says customers should read or play board games rather than watch television,  claiming the reduction in electricity could save £12 a year.

It adds that drying clothes  outside rather than in a tumble dryer could save £38.

 

 Really!

With all the hot air you produce your energy bills must cost next to nothing.

If you want to read a book then surely you'd need the light on at night or do they suggest reading by candlelight.

Or they could lower the fecking prices.

Who do you shower and play Monopoly with if you live on your own?

Candles are expensive - I'd suggest a wind-up torch.

You could organise a shower sharing scheme with a neighbour

Here's an idea that's cheaper than microwaving...  Two days a week, in the morning wrap your left-overs in foil and pop them on a radiator...  Come the evening they'll be plenty warm enough to eat.

That would certainly work if the neighbour looked like Jessie Pavelka

Yeah, nice one, a great suggestion for developing rampant cultures of food poisoning bacteria......or have I been suckered by an obvious troll, XX1 (or should I say Lit)?

now sharing a bath can reduce money but surely sharing a shower would use up a lot more money....only one can access the water at any time and all the squirming around trying to get to the water is only going to lead toi one thing.....and the shower could last for a very long time

I think it may have been a joke.

I used to work somewhere yonks ago where we would get cold pies out of a machine mid-morning and cellotape them to a radiator to heat them up in time for lunch.

"Here's an idea that's cheaper than microwaving...  Two days a week, in the morning wrap your left-overs in foil and pop them on a radiator...  Come the evening they'll be plenty warm enough to eat."

Won't that work only if the radiators are on? I thought the point was to save money?

- Shower together

and be late for work

- Turn the pressure down when showering

and smell

- Microwaving food for two nights a week

prepare tasteless food so it doesn't matter if you microwave it

- After cooking food in the oven leave the oven door open to help warm the kitchen

you should always let your oven cool this way (its usually in the manufacturers instructions)

- Use toaster and not the oven grill to toast your bread

eat cereal

- Drink two fewer hot drinks a week

and miss out on a caffeine hit

- Dry clothes outside or use a clothes horse rather than using a tumble dryer

stop washing your clothes and just smell

- Scrape your plates and do not rinse your plates before you put them in the   dishwasher

stop using a dishwasher and do the plates in the sink

- Unplug all electrical appliances that you do not use regularly

if they are switched off they aren't using any electricity

- Lower your water heater to 50 degree celsius and wash clothes in warm or cold water

and go to work smelly

- Read a book than watching television

have sex instead of reading a book

- Play Monopoly or any other family game instead of watching TV

bloody boring when there are only 2 of you, have sex instead

- Go to bed early

have sex

 

So in reality all Karen wants is to smell and have sex, Somehow can't see that working

Apparently First Utility increased its prices by 18% last year...
