In our third podcast we again tackle three topics. The first topic is Water Conservation. The podcast goes over how to conserve water to lower your water bills!
Did you know?
- Shortening your shower by 5 minutes saves 12.5 gallons of water.
- By not running the water while you are brushing your teeth you save 8 gallons of water a day per person.
The second topic we address is a diversion from the two part series on savings. In the feedback from the second podcast the overarching theme was that people wanted to know what to do during financial disasters and how to start to recover. Tips on contacting creditors and having the ability triage or prioritize the bills that are coming in are provided along with advice on how to start to recover. Did you know that those of you that applied and received energy assistance helped triage your bills by getting help with paying a portion of your energy costs. Like last month, we will again, provide Money Smart Tools from the FDIC.
The third topic is for your kitchen. We again provide a family and food pantry friendly recipe called Chicken and Cabbage Lettuce Cups. The recipe is one in which families can substitute ingredients for ingredients that can be found at a local food pantry. Again, whether you are a family that is new to using a food pantry or an expert at it, this recipe can quickly become a family favorite!
Check out Episode 3 on the podcast page. We provide a library with all podcasts that are available. The other pages provide libraries of the handouts from the Energy Conservation tips, the Money Smart Tools and we even have a recipe corner with all the recipes that we have provided. In addition there is a Winners Circle page in which the Winners of the monthly drawing are identified and promoted Congratulations to June’s winners Heidi O and Laura G!
