I have seen so many people that keeps posting their own personal/private identity via Facebook. Yes, I got it "bragging" of something they have accomplished in life, etc. But do we really need to take a picture of it, with the complete details and post on public sites? In fact, only those thieves that cares about those infos you have posted. Unfortunately, they are unaware of the risks that they are in. Documents that shows your identity or your child should not be posted on the internet publicly. Passports, licenses or ID's, green cards, phone numbers and home addresses should be fully protected at all times. I guess, they will learn somehow once they will get unexpected bills or someone's opening credit cards using their identifications that they have been sharing online. Folks, protecting valuable life informations is your own responsibility.
Winter is the most expensive season.Yes, it is to me! It's not just because of Christmas shopping that we did but also when it comes to electric bills. Keeping the heater on all day means increasing the energy consumption of the household. And there is a way to cut back and lower your next bill by doing these list of smart-watt's tips: First, upgrading all the house bulbs into CFL's or LED, second, keeping the entire house sealed and keeping warm air circulating inside. Covering all possible cold air leakages and putting up clear and thick plastic on your windows is a big help. It might look 'redneck' style but think about the savings for the whole season. Lastly, don't leave the house without turning off your thermostat or at least decreasing the temperature. Now, what is your energy-saving tips?
