Fall for energy conservation: A tip as we (hopefully) approach cooler temps

Summer’s almost gone — and with it, my white linen suit and matching white patent dress shoes. *Stares wistfully into space*

September is officially here. Where has all the time gone? It’s the beginning of a new school year, the weather is (finally) starting to become (sort of) cooler, and for many people it’s the time to start preparing for the winter.
