Close your eyes. Now describe your bathroom lighting fixtures. Could you do it? I couldn’t just last week- had to go peek- but today’s post may open your eyes and bring a little more attention to the light in your life!

So yes, let’s talk about lightbulbs. How often do you change yours? My answer used to be “ALL the time” because I was a cheapy McCheaperson who bought the least expensive lightbulbs out there. Then a few months later bought the least expensive lightbulbs out there. And then a few months later bought the least expensive lightbulbs… I think you get what I’m saying. I was spending a lot of money on lightbulbs, just a little at a time!
Finally I got wise and started to invest in some CFLs, and became totally converted because of how long they lasted. Now the world of lighting is changing again, and LED lights are the bulbs of the future!
One of the items on my bucket list is to reduce my ecological footprint. No, I’m not a “green” person. I don’t go to great lengths to be perfect, environmentally. But I do think a little goes a long way, so I try to make green choices whenever possible. Choosing LED lightbulbs is one way I’m doing my part, and it’s a win win win.
LED lightbulbs save money, time, the environment, and my sanity, and here’s how.
They save money because they are long-lasting, which means I don’t have to buy new bulbs regularly, and they use less electricity, reducing my monthly electric bill!
They save time because I don’t have to constantly be replacing bulbs all over the house.
They save the environment because they use much less energy, and they don’t have to be replaced all the time.
They save my sanity because I’m too short to replace lightbulbs, so I either end up bribing my husband to do it for me, or I concoct some super dangerous construction of a stool and chair and high heel shoes to be able to reach the light fixtures. They may also save my bones from breaking and hospital bills from adding up.
So I bought these lovely new GE LED bulbs from Sam’s Club, with the idea that I would slowly replace all the bulbs in my house, starting with my bathroom. We love our Sam’s Club membership, because we use it to stock up on items we need regularly, like snacks for school and toilet paper. Buying in bulk is another way we help save money and the environment (and time and sanity…)!
My cowboy helped me carry them!
I’ve always wanted to turn my bathroom into kind of a home spa, and the right lighting is a big part of that. I chose the 40 watt equivalent bulbs, because I like a softer light in my bathroom. Goodness knows I do not need a super bright vision of myself in the mirror in the morning.
My bathroom already had a nice lighting fixture, and these bulbs went very nice with it. Add a soft bath rug, some aromatherapy, maybe a trickling fountain, and I’ll have the home spa I’ve been dreaming of!
Here’s what I’ve got so far:
