AARP DRIVER SAFETY TIP


Bad buying habit? Break it with a spending fast.


T


Be alert at intersections. Intersections are busy places with many hazards. Nearly one in every four crashes involving people in their 40s occur in intersections. For drivers 75 and older, at least 40 percent of fatal crashes occur in intersections and involve more than one vehicle. This percentage increases with driver age. Be aware of what other drivers are doing, particularly when approaching or driving through an intersection.


Choctaw Electric offers AARP Driver Safety classes for the public. For details or to schedule a class for your group or community, contact Brad Kendrick 800- 780-6486, ext 248.


he Street.com recently asked some financial planning pros for their best tips on living within a budget.


One suggestion that sounds particularly intriguing is declaring a moratorium on spending. Commit to spending absolutely no money for one day a month. Try stretching it to two or three days if possible.


You’ll find out how much money you spend without thinking about it, and you’ll break yourself of the habit of reaching for your wallet on impulse. And you may find more constructive ways to spend your time instead of your cash.

ENERGY EFFICIENCY Tip of the Month


Want to beat the heat? Run appliances like dishwashers and dryers late in the evening to keep heat they give off from affecting your comfort. Use cold water to wash clothes, and remember to unplug electric chargers, televisions, and any electronic items when you are not using them. Learn more ways to save at www. TogetherWeSave.com.
