    Great idea to use some of your tax refund (assuming you’re getting one) to help fund some small projects around the house.

    I’d recommend folks also consider what they may be able to leverage with various Energy Efficiency Rebates (e.g. Nicor Gas, Federal Government). Presently, if you buy and have installed what is classified as an “Energy Efficient” Gas Hot Water Heater, you may be eligible for up to a $300 rebate from Nicor Gas. Also, if you meet the requirements for a certain level of Energy Efficient Windows, I believe you may also be eligible for a small rebate (i.e. the amount will vary based on the square footage of what you have installed) from the Federal Government. These days, with the negative impact of higher taxes and higher prices for many goods and services, these “savings” may help you to both “Go Green” and to also you live within your household budget.
