My family is all about saving money. We follow Dave Ramsey’s advice about getting out of debt, we use eMeals to save money on groceries, we dress our daughter in hand-me-downs, and we use the LED power of GE LED Energy Smart light bulbs for our home! Every little bit counts, and I can assure you I won’t be paying any more on my electricity bill than I have to. GE LED bulbs help me save energy and money in our home while still giving me the super bright LED lighting that I want.

1 LED Bulb lasts as long as 15 traditional incandescent bulbs. The soft white light it gives off is a lot more pleasant to look at than the yellow shade of your average bulb as well.

My husband and I have lived in five apartments together. We are currently packing up our apartment in Washington state to move back to our home state of Wisconsin. The moving process has not been fun, especially because I’m 4.5 months pregnant! One thing I knew we would be doing before we moved is the same thing we do every time we move in and move back out of an apartment- change our lightbulbs. As you can see above, we actually have a box labeled “lightbulbs” in our garage!

Every time we move into an apartment, one of the first steps we take is to unscrew all of the lightbulbs in every fixture and replace them with our GE LED Energy Smart bulbs. We leave the inferior bulbs in the box in our garage so we can swap them back out when we are moving out again. Most rental companies and landlords don’t invest in quality lighting for their rental units, but we know better! A couple years ago we took the plunge and bought all of our own lightbulbs, and I’m sure our annual savings is major! In fact, you can check out this savings calculator if you’re curious about the type of savings you can look forward to if you make the switch!

My husband’s job is with GE, which is one of the reasons we are huge fans of this brand. I can honestly say GE is one of the best companies out there for anything! I’ve had my ultrasounds for both children on GE equipment, we buy our lightbulbs from GE and the appliances in our rental unit are from GE. I rarely hear of problems with GE equipment because it is so well made. We are hardcore fans of GE, and not only are their lightbulbs fantastic, but they are easy to find at the store!

If you’re interested in purchasing these bulbs, check them out at your local Walmart. Ours had a big display full of the Energy Smart lightbulbs. The nice thing about a product sold at Walmart, is no matter where you live, you’re always near a Walmart! We have moved so many times and I’m so glad these lightbulbs are easy to find. Best yet, check out a coupon here for $1 off these lightbulbs through 5/1!

You can see the boxes in the background…our move is drawing near. We are boxing things up all week, and Jocelyn and I will be flying out Friday morning at 6 am! Wish us luck! In the meantime, I wanted you to see the picture above which was taken after I switched our lightbulbs from the awesome GE LED Energy Smart light back to our crummy yellow lighting that came with the apartment. I love the soft white glow I get with an incandescent bulb, and I’m eager to swap our lightbulbs out at the next apartment!

    We installed generic led bulbs several years ago, they made a HUGE difference in our electric bill (even though we were always conscientious to keep our lights off as much as possible). Plus, no worries about mercury like those curly bulbs.

    Investing in GE LED Energy Smart bulbs is such a great idea when moving into an apartment. I love that you’ve taken the same bulbs with you as you have moved to different homes! #client
