A Home Energy Improvement for Only $15

We recently switched from incandescent to CFL bulbs for our outdoor floods lights.  I got soft white, because harsh white CFL bulbs make me twitch. (Especially the indoor ones, which I prefer to use in places like closets). Anyway, a two-pack of the incandescent outdoor floodlights that we normally buy costs $13.97. The CFL two-pack […]
