Fix-It Fair Offers Moneysaving Tips

EUGENE, Ore. — Everybody is looking for ways to save money and go green, and the Eugene Fix-It Fair taught residents how to do just that.

People of all ages enjoyed some home improvement tips Saturday at Willamette High School. The fair had workshops on how to save energy during the cold winter months, and even how to get the most out of your tax refund. The focus was on living a greener lifestyle, but also cutting costs in the process. Organizers were looking to show residents that going green is a great way to save some extra cash.

“Everything from changing your light bulbs to starting your own compost pile, learning how to fix your own computer, little things like that that are simple and easy for people to do,” said Babe O’Sullivan,┬áCity of Eugene┬áSustainability Liaison.

The City of Eugene says the goal was to help learn some easy ways they can save money and reduce their energy costs.

    Save energy huh?

    How about every one start (especially businesses) by turning off the lights on the outside of buildings that are on during the daylight hours on just about every business in town! And this certainly includes private homes too! I see it every day, I don’t know how people can afford not to make sure they aren’t running their lights during daylight hours!

    Even EWEB has lights burning on the outside of their buildings during daylights hours!
