4 simple money-saving home tips

While regular home maintenance won't always guarantee that you'll have a future of no home repairs to budget for, they can prevent some costly problems that could have been avoided. There are some easy home maintenance things that you can do that could save you big bucks.

1. A pesky water drip or leak can add up to higher water bills. Leaks and drips can also lead to severe water damage if you leave it for too long or they’re in a spot that can cause structural damage, like an upstairs bathroom. Check your plumbing regularly.

2. It's also important to check for any breaks in caulking around tubs, sinks, etc. The same applies to the grouting in any tiled surfaces that you have. Not only is mildew a problem to get rid of, but improperly grouted or broken grouted surfaces can destroy a shower or countertop and even warp the surface.

3. Put dimmers on lights that you use frequently but are in areas where you don't always need a lot of light. Also switch your bulbs to energy-saving compact fluorescent ones. You'll save money on the electric bill and also on your bulbs.

4. No matter what you have in your home, over time, if you keep things like windows, floors, cabinets, walls and railings clean and well taken care of, you're going to avoid the cost of repairing or replacing them. So stay on top of small problems before they get out of hand.
