I’m moving out of my parents’ place next week, and I’m incredibly excited! The day can’t come soon enough. My parents have given me a lot of advice for how to comfortably live on my own. My mother has made sure to remind me plenty of times about making sure that I clean up after myself too keep the apartment pristine and free from pests and germs. My father, on the other hand, has given me a lot of practical advice. He has given me a lot of energy-saving tips, all so I can keep the energy costs low. I never really considered a lot of them as important, however I’ve taken a lot of them at heart because he has really only trying to look out for me and help me save as much money as I can! He also reminded me plenty of times to change the air filters often, and that helps the A/C and Heating units operate at peak functionality. I never really considered that I even needed to change the heating and cooling system air filters, so I’m incredibly thankful that he has brought all of this to my attention. There are also a few minor energy saving tips that he has told me that were more obvious, but having been told them again helps me understand the importance of doing them. I’m going to take all of their advice with me and perhaps pass them on to any future friends or family. One day, I’ll do as I my dad did for me, and impart my knowledge to my own kids as they move out.
