    One way that you can save money that you may not have thought of is through turning off the television. Not only will you save on your energy bill, but you will avoid being exposed to so many different advertisements. Advertisements are designed to make you go and buy things. Even if you do not think that you act on them, if you pay attention you will find that sometimes you do act on these things. Your children will also be affected adversely by advertising. Then, when they see something they want, they will beg you for it until you purchase it for them. Television is okay on occasion, but you can save money by turning it off.
