LED lightbulbs – Cost 3x a normal bulb but will save you money longterm

OK this subject is rather boring but longterm it could save you a small fortune.

It doesn’t sound like much at first but you could save around £7.30 a month by swapping your bulbs to LED versions. They cost more up front (normally 3x) but over 3 years you could have an extra £261 in your accounts. Based on a household of 5 x LED 10watt (60w equivalent) bulbs, running 7 hours a day at 18p/kWh compared with 5 x 60W standard bulbs and having to buy new ones of those etc.

LED Lightbulbs always used to be fairly dim, very expensive and pretty pointless but things have changed & they now save up to 80% on your electricity costs so over 5.7 years of continuous usage (the average lifespan of a LED bulb), think of it as a longterm investment.

Here are the ones we use – reviews overall were pretty good when we purchased however we’re certainly not experts on LED bulbs so if anyone knows any better ones feel free to jump on:

http://amzn.to/1G6ip4F (brighter but also a blue white glow, good for office area)

http://amzn.to/1G6kRbB (warm yellow bayonet)

http://amzn.to/1FKapCO (not used but decent reviews)

They also do a full selection of bulbs onhttp://amzn.to/1FK8tuj and you will be better off buying the multipacks to save a little extra e.g. £15.99 for 5 or 1 for £5.99…

Important things to remember with everything we post:

  • If you earn over your personal allowance (currently £12,500 a year) HMRC need to get their % cut (even if the money is in cash or from another country)
  • If you’re working for yourself / earning an income on the side you need to let HMRC know – There are numerous benefits but also some drawbacks
  • You need to always ensure whatever you’re doing is legal and not hurting anyone else – be careful and always think twice
  • Some income streams may require you to have DBS check, licence, insurance or qualifications before you can start to profit from it, do your research.
  • Be careful that any additional income doesn’t compromise your studies or main income/job
  • If you work for a company check your contract, if you don’t inform them you’re working on other side projects outside of work they may have grounds to ownership on this work
