Although most halls cover students’ electricity costs, private hostels tend not to, and you end up having to buy your own prepaid. If you’ve noticed that you’re spending too much money getting prepaid, follow these hacks to cut down your costs.
Plug Your Rice Cooker In The Study Room
Now obviously if there’s a socket in the communal kitchen on your floor, that’s where you should be plugging your rice cooker. However, that’s usually not the case, so when you notice an empty study room, you can hide your rice cooker in a corner there instead.
No “TDB” Game Nights
Usually when there’s a console in your room, it becomes a hub for all the boys on your floor. However, you need strict boundaries because best believe that if the prepaid finishes, it’s going to be those who sleep in the room that have to get it. So no all night FIFA marathons.
Remember To Turn Off The Fan
It’s so easy to leave the fan on that sometimes we don’t even realize when it’s naturally windy. Remembering to turn off the fan when it’s not being used can go a long way towards bringing your prepaid bill down.
Iron In Bulk
Here’s one that you’ve probably heard before. When you have to iron, iron as many outfits as possible at a time in order to cut down your electricity usage.
