Celebrate Energy Awareness Month This October With Best Buy and ENERGY STAR®

We just made two major purchases at Best Buy in the past month, a Blu-ray player and a free standing chest freezer.   It was so helpful to be able to check out the ENERGY STAR® certifications on line and in store, to make our decision easier.  Best Buy and ENERGY STAR are here to help you make your home more green, and save you some green, too.   

One of the quirky perks of being a blogger is sometimes getting paid in product.   Recently I was comped for sharing a campaign with FORTY pounds of chicken breasts!   As jazzed as I was about the perk, we have a small freezer.   Unfortunately none of the major appliance peeps I write for stepped up to comp my prose with one of those giant bottom drawer fridge/freezers I've been drooling over, so we headed to our go to place at the end of the block, Best Buy.

We were throwing money away by running an empty old fridge in the basement, just to use the little freezer for our overflow.   And it still was too small for the chicken breast bonanza.   Now we have a rockin', energy efficient, freestanding chest freezer with far more storage capacity!   

We were also one of the last holdouts with a working VCR/DVD combo unit.   Yes... I still actually had a VCR.  It finally gave up the ghost and we're loving our money saving Blu-ray player.

ENERGY STAR certifications made it easy to narrow down all the options and make an eco friendly, money saving choice.
