There are seven people in our home, plus a dog.  We have so much laundry.  So. Much. Laundry.  We do at least one load a day and often more.  I worry sometimes about what our energy bill will be, especially in the winter when we have all those snow pants and gloves and hats to wash and dry.  Thankfully I have been hearing about a great option that helps to address my concerns.  ENERGY STAR® dryers use 20% less energy than standard models and ENERGY STAR  washers use 25% less energy and 45% less water!  That could be some potential great savings for us!

ENERGY STAR #ad

Not only do ENERGY STAR washers and dryers offer savings on your energy and water bills, they also are better for the environment.  The average owner will save $490 with an ENERGY STAR certified clothes washer and could save even more when paired with an ENERGY STAR dryer.  One feature that jumped out to me is that these ENERGY STAR washers do not have a central agitator, that is supposed to help minimize wear and tear on clothing.  And the dryers use a sensor to sense when clothes are dry which also helps reduce wear and tear on your clothing.

ENERGY STAR washers and dryers can be bought from Best Buy. If you are intrigued by this idea, then make sure you watch this video about being a laundry star!

If you are in the market for a new washer, new dryer or possible even both, then visit the Best Buy Blog to learn more!

I would love to hear from you about your best laundry hacks!  What saves you time when you do laundry?  Then go check out ENERGY STAR and let me know if you’d make the switch!

Nighttime has never before been so magical! LightHeaded Beds are stylish beds for kids with an awesome light up panel in the headboard. A safe LED light component kit always stays cool, and provides enough back light for reading. The light dims down to turn the panel into a soothing nightlight! A special remote programs the lights, and can shut them automatically after the child has drifted to sleep. The best part of it all – the panel can be fitted with thousands of incredible images! HeadLightz, which come in every style imaginable, slide right over the light up panel, and give each child’s room its own personality. Styles range from toddler to teen, and with so many to choose from, a child’s personality can really shine! Note that LightHeaded beds do not include bedding or mattress.

Every time I hear about a robbery, I think about the security of our home.  I have definitely considered a home monitoring system, but we’ve been turned off by both the price tag and the lengthy contract periods.  But now there’s a new player in town and it’s got us seriously considering a home monitoring system for the first time!

Vivint is a new concept.  It provides a 24/7 home monitoring system, but without the contract.

Vivint home monitoring system #ad

This home monitoring system is AMAZING! It does everything from one intuitive app.  Want to turn lights off? Check the temperature of your home? Open or close the garage?  Give someone an access code to open your front door?  See who just rang your bell while your home is empty?  You can do ALL of that and more via the app.

Here is what the website has to say:

When you purchase a Best Buy Smart Home package along with security monitoring, Vivint will handle your product installation and any monitoring of your home. If your alarm is triggered, Vivint will contact you and dispatch police, fire or medical personnel.

  • The most comprehensive smart home experience available, anywhere
  • Award-winning 24/7/365 monitoring for fire, police and medical
  • 24/7 customer and technical support
  • Highest-rated smart home app

I’ve not used the Vivint home monitoring system, but based on the demo I saw, it is the one that will get us to cross the bridge and buy one.  I was very impressed by how easy the app was to use and how many products we could get to truly fit our needs and/or customize our home.   You can do as much, or as little, as you’d like.  Having 5 kids, we are very interested in the garage door, front door and temperature controlling.  I loved that the front door lock could have a key code.  And while hundreds of miles away, if one of our kids was locked out, I could send them a key code to open the front door.  Also, no more giving a key to neighbors when they feed your dog or cat.  Just use a key code and allow it to work only during the time you are gone.

Vivint is available through Best Buy.  Check your local store and take advantage of the informative in-store demo.
