Your younger sister who is studying in a college is sharing a house with three friends. You decide tow rite a letter to remind her of ways to take care of herself and to save electricity bill.
 
How are you getting on with your course? You have left us for just two weeks but it seems like it has been a long time as we miss you very much. We are fine here but I feel a little bit lonely. There is no younger sister for me to bully and to tell off about your untidy room or for taking my things. Father and mother send their love. They want you to be independent but at the same time they miss the little darling.

I may sound a bit nagging here but I feel that I should give you some tips on how to keep safe and how to save your money. Though you are sharing a house with friends of the same age, they may be more safety conscious than you. Since this is the first time you are staying away from the family, maybe you need to know a few more safety tips, be it at home or outside.

Here are some ways of keeping safe. Make it a habit to switch off the lights and fans when you go out of your room or when you leave the house. By doing this, you can save the electricity bill and thus save your money. More importantly, you can avoid any incidence of short circuit which can be very dangerous. Surely you are aware that short circuit is the main reason for most houses caught on fire, right?

So, do not forget. Always switch off electrical appliances and lights when you do not need them. Turn off the computer when not in use. By doing so, you can save the environment too because electrical appliances emits heat when they are on.

Have some plants in the garden if you can. These plants can help to swallow up carbon dioxide and dust while cooling the area around them. With a cooler environment, there is less need for air-conditioning.

Use public transportation whenever you can. Less driving means less fuel and more savings. Car pool helps you to save too because you share the traveling expenses. So you do not have to pay everything all by yourself. Make sure to send your car for regular servicing as this will keep your car more efficient so you do not need to consume much petrol.

Another way to save money is to plan before you shop. Make a list and check it twice to save money and minimize food waste. Buy only what you need and avoid buying that extra packet of snack or soft drink. Check the expiry date when buying packed or canned foods. The longer the expiry date, the better as this means the food is fresher. Food with earlier expiry date may be on offer but this may be a case of penny wise pound foolish as you might be forced to consume the food at a time when you do not need to. One may even overlook and end up throwing away the item.

Another tip which you, my younger sister needs is to keep healthy. I know you are lazy when it comes to exercising. But, you need to exercise to have a good health. Try jogging and swimming. As long as you do it regularly, you are on the road to good health. Eat well. Follow a healthy diet like what you eat at home, whole-wheat grains, fruits, vegetable and fish and you will stay healthy.

That is all for now. Do write to us when you have free time. Love from mum and dad.
