Making Life Easier in the Home
This month in Golden Age Magazine we would like to share some tips for making life easier as you get older. These tips are all quick and easy, and most importantly, they won’t cost you a lot of money. Here are a few ways that senior citizens can make their homes more comfortable and less dangerous places to live:
1/ When lining your garbage can with plastic bags, put 6 or so extra in the bottom. When you fill one, you will have another at your fingertips to replace it.
2/ Store heavy items on center cabinet shelves, light objects on high or low shelves. This way you won’t risk straining your back to pick up heavy objects.
3/ Put a night safety light in your hallway or bathroom. Installing a light can help reduce night-time accidents. If you use a glow-in-the-dark light switch, even better!
4/ Sticking traction strips on slippery surfaces is essential, especially on tiled surfaces such as bathrooms. Traction strips are available from most major retailers.
5/ Be sure to remove clothes from the dryer with a reacher. This will help you protect your back. These are just a few ways that you can help make your daily living more enjoyable.

Dear Ms. McCarthy,
Thank you for your recent inquiry about PowerGen Electricity. I apologize for not replying sooner; however, we have been having some trouble with our customer address database. This problem has now been resolved and I am pleased to answer your questions.
In your letter, you asked for advice on how to cut your electricity bill. We are aware that our customers want to find the most efficient, yet &conom\ca\ ways to use electricity in their homes. You might be surprised to learn that cutting down on electric costs is easy to do. I am enclosing a chart of the average energy costs of most major home appliances. All you need to do is look at the chart, work out how many hours you use an Item in an average week, then multiply that number by cost per hour. If you do this for each item on the list, you can calculate your monthly charge.
e.g. If you use your washing machine everyday for one hour, you will need 17.5 cents per week. To reduce costs, wait till you have enough clothes for a full load. You could cut as much as 5 cents. This may not sound like much, but Imagine reducing the time for every appliance. The total savings will add up.
I hope this helps you.
