With summer weather set to “scorch” these days, it’s time for an energy-saving tune up for your refrigerator and freezer.
Keeping food fresh–while conserving energy–can bring a helpful boost to the strained food budget.
Try these tips to minimize energy use and save money on groceries:
Fill the freezer, but give the fridge some air
The freezer works most efficiently when packed as full as possible. Need to fill in some space? Tuck extra ice for cold drinks or cold-packs for summer picnics into any empty space in the freezer.
