Shift your Mail
Stopping junk mail is one simple action you can take to clear clutter and save time. Take the pledge and stop junk mail with one of the following sites:
OptOutPrescreen - Just one click allows you to opt out of credit and insurance company mailers for free.
DMA Choice - $2 for ten years to block multiple categories of mail with a single click
Catalog Choice - Free option to select which catalogs you want to stop receiving.
Shift your Cool
We live in Colorado, which means it can get warm during the day but cooler in the evenings. This summer, instead of turning on your A/C right away, make sure you use your ceiling fans and close your blinds to cool down your home. Using a fan and setting your A/C 2 degrees higher can save up to 14% on cooling costs while still feeling comfortable.
Shift your Ride
Save your gas money for what matters most. Fort Collins has over 60 miles of paved bike trails and around 200 miles of bike lanes. Biking to work regularly can save you money on gas and car maintenance and bonus - it's also good for your health!
