A special thank you to my friends at Direct Energy for sponsoring this post.
Blogging professionally over the past few years has had its many perks – but mostly I’ve received plenty of goods and services for free. I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love being the recipient of free things…. Would you believe me if I told you that the Direct Energy is now offering a free electricity plan for the weekends? (Friday 6pm – Sunday 11:59pm). That’s right! With Direct Energy’s Free Power Weekend plan, you won’t be charged for the energy you use from Friday evening until Sunday night – which makes it the energy plan with the most hours of free weekend electricity in Texas*! 
This would be great for all you working families out there that are not home during the weekdays and therefore not using as much electricity as you normally would if you were home. Even more savings come in when you put a smart thermostat to use like we did last year when we installed one. Not to mention, we replaced the insulation in our attic last year and that helped keep our bill to a minimum this summer. Having one of these gives us the freedom to control the AC and heat from wherever we are through the phone app. I love having devices that make my house ‘smart’ – it’s one of life’s greatest inventions for smart use of power! 
Direct Energy also provides each customer with Direct Your Energy, a usage insight dashboard, which measures how much electricity you are using and even breaks it down by appliance! This allows you to better gauge how you are using energy in your home so you can learn which appliances are costing you the most to run.

So back to my original thoughts on getting free stuff – how would you like to sign up for Free Power Weekends? ? If you’re one of those working families, you typically don’t run the air quite so cold during the weekdays when nobody is home, and you’re certainly not using any appliances or lights. To be honest even as a stay at home mom I do most of my laundry on Sundays to prepare for the week ahead. How cool would it be to run the washer & dryer for free?


Weekends are great for families and friends to gather and enjoy each other’s company. I love to cook and entertain, so I don’t mind having everyone over. I don’t know about anyone else, but the patio door opening and closing 100 times a day gives me anxiety about the AC unit never shutting off! With the Free Power Weekends plan from Direct Energy, I don’t have to worry about it and can focus on being a hostess.
