After the wonderful tool introduced a few articles below, aka the Energy Savings Calculator, I am pleased to announce….
Our very own reproduction of a dollhouse!
I am exaggerating but it made me think of that when I first saw it.
So, what is IT?
The Home Lighting Ideas - Interactive Diagram aka:
You can find it HERE
So, what is the use of this diagram ?
Well, here at OttLite we noticed that it could be difficult for some of you to know exactly where each lamp was supposed to go. Clearly no one wants to find a Craft Lamp on the night stand. With our new Interactive Diagram, you can go from this:
Now, isn't that better ?
So you just have to click on the room(s) where you want to put the lamp and the Interactive Diagram helps you choose the lamp that will fit the best and provide you with an optimal living environment.
Now that's easy !

Aaron Rose, a film director I admire once wrote:
“In the right light, at the right time, everything is extraordinary”.
When speaking of OttLite's January Rock Star Terri Kacie, that sentence would go a little more like this:
“In the right light, at the right time, everyone is extraordinary”.
Some people go beyong the ordinary, deleting the word impossible of their vocabulary and taking a huge bite out of life.
This is the case for OttLite's Rock Star of the month, Terri Kacie.
When Terri discovered a disease would confine her to a wheelchair for the rest of her life, she chose not to give up and to resume her life long aspirations of a healthy lifestyle.
Basketball? Not a problem. Hiking? She loves it!
Tennis? Terri is Nationally ranked.
Most able-bodied people (myself included) don't come close to the amount of physical activity Terri participates in.
As if it weren't enough to prove the world that she is one of a kind, Terri decided to literally reach new heights by becoming the first wheelchair-bound woman to rappel in the world.
You can check out her story here:http://www.ottlite.com/rockstar.aspx
So, the next time you’re complaining and saying something is too difficult, think of Terri: If she can do it, You can too!
If you would like to be OttLite's next Rock Star and show us how you "seize the day", follow the link above and send your story to our President ! Our future Rock Star may be you!

Take a look around your house. How many bulbs do you have plugged into lamps, overhead lights, fans, vanities and more?
The national average is a whopping 37.5 bulbs!
Now, guess how much money PER YEAR you can save by switching these lights from incandescent bulbs to OttLite lighting? Based on the national average, the answer is … $356.53 per year. That’s quite a chunk of change! Plus, OttLite screw in bulbs (aka Edison based bulbs) are rated to last up to 8,000 hours.

2) Vanity Bulb Beautification! – This organization update will save me over $100 in energy costs. PLUS – I can now see everything in its true color! I replaced my old bulbs with OttLite Vanity Bulbs. This quick fix has brightened up my space and is great for putting on make up and matching clothes (think black vs. blue socks!).
3) Hall Closet Cubbies – My kids' school has it right – everything has a home, and every little person has a cubbie! I got this tip from the Today Show. I used a hanging closet sweater organizer and gave everyone their own slot. Now my purse finally has a home. The lower shelves are perfect for little kids to reach and put away their jackets.
