So it’s shameful to admit that I still have a few lamps in my home that don’t have energy efficient light bulbs. It’s really a shame. We could be saving even more money on our electricity bill if we just went out and got some GE energy efficient light bulbs. If you simply change at least two light bulbs you can save some money. It’s that simple and you can event take this quiz HERE to see how much you can save if you replaced some of your regular light bulbs with energy efficient light bulbs. I took the quiz and just changing out two of our lamps would eventually save us seventy two dollars!
I’m a frugal person and eco-friendly person, so it’s not like me to not want to save money and be more eco-friendly. Knowing that I can save up to $72 over the life of the bulb, by switching out two of my light bulbs was enough for me to go out and buy some efficient light bulbs. I quickly ran out and bought some light efficient light bulbs at Walmart!
You can see my whole shopping trip for these energy efficient light bulbs on my GOOGLE PLUS ALBUM HERE!

They last 8 times longer and use 75% less energy than incandescent bulbs—an easy change to make for the earth.
- Saves $39 in energy cost over the life of the bulb (costs $1.85 to operate annually vs. $7.23 for a 60W incandescent)
- 7.3 year life at 3 hours/day usage!
GE Energy-Efficient Soft White bulbs offer the closest alternative to traditional incandescents. Thanks to GE’s halogen technology, you get everything you’ve always loved about traditional bulbs, but with one big change: 28% energy savings.
