FW: THOUGHTS: Bishopsgate : Bills n Water : Need to address : how to save Costs or Each to Contribute Monthly Expenses.


From: Joce Teo [mailto:jaws@earthpacs.com]

Gentle recommendations from past experiences:


  1. On food costs and stocks and inventory for kitchen
    1. Nominate an inventory I/C – e,g. Myrna - who will have to bear full responsibility on the all food items - preventing 5 bottles of the same item being opened irresponsibly and minimizing wastage of perishables. i.e. If anyone wants to open a new bottle/ can/ jar of anything, she must check the current stock and give her OK


  1. On saving electricity, here are some suggestions I've provided to in my previous PUB endeavour
    1. Locate most expensive utilities – my guess will be air-conditioning, fridges and water
    2. For the AC, we can put in a timer for maximum of 8 hours on at a time unless manually turned off / on again
    3. For the fridges

                                                               i.      Avoid piling it too much with food and items or it will go into overdrive and super power up

                                                             ii.      Reducing each fridge will save you up to S$100 each on your elect bill as that is how much 'industrial' fridges like yours can cost

    1. On H2O

                                                               i.      Check to all bidets and cisterns to ensure that the systems are not leaking as leakage is very costly
