1. Fill a water cooler for the kids to get their drinks from throughout the day. During these hot summer days, my children are in need of cold water. We don't have an ice dispenser on our freezer and so the freezer door is constantly being opened and closed in order to get ice. This uses extra electricity as the freezer has to run almost constantly to cool all that warm air being let in. I fill old milk jugs or juice bottles with water and freeze them. Each morning I pull one out, put it in the water cooler and fill the water cooler with fresh water. Now they have cold water readily available for them all day long. And the freezer door stays shut saving dollars on electricity.
