Saving Money

Did you know that keeping your car's engine tuned and your tires inflated to their proper pressure can save you $100 a year? And that credit cards with rebates, cash back, travel awards or other perks may carry higher rates or fees? The Federal Citizen Information Center (FCIC) has published a brochure titled "66 Ways to Save Money" that is designed to help consumers.

The Department of Energy (DOE) maintains webpages that address saving energy and money at home. Topics include windows, water heating, and insulation and weatherization. You will also find more information on home energy savings from the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.
