Tire pressure is like drinking caffeine. Too little and your car is sluggish- using about 0.4 % more gas for every psi
(pounds per square inch) under the recommended number. Too high and the
over-inflated tires will make the car rattle and shake.
So maintain the correct air pressure in your tires. You can find the psi number on the driver’s door jamb or user’s manual. It’s usually around 32-34.I check my tires at home with a little pressure checker thingy. Gas stations do have machines, usually in a corner somewhere, and either broken or with a line of people waiting. See, you’re not alone! Take a couple of minutes to save gas– and have a safer ride too!
Is the sun shining today? Open your blinds and curtains in the morning. The sun’s rays will help heat the room (our pets already know this). When the sun goes down, close your blinds and curtains, kind of like you’re tucking your house or apartment in for the night. Repeat the next day.
Some friends tell me opening blinds is a pain because it takes time…and then there’s the nakedness factor. Just a suggestion, but wait until you’re dressed! If you’re really pressed for time, only open the curtains in the rooms that get direct sunlight. Take a break on cloudy days. If you live with others, get them involved too. No excuses!
