$5 LED bulbs are nothing to get excited about these days, except that almost all of them are 60W equivalents. While that’s fine for most rooms, if you prefer your lights to be blindingly bright, Amazon will sell you a 4-pack of Philips 100W equivalents for just $20 today.

When you consider that these bulbs only need 14W to produce the same amount of light as 100W incandescents, it’s easy to see how they’ll pay for themselves in energy savings over time. Plus, many local utility companies offer post-purchase rebates when you send in receipts for LED bulbs, which would allow you to hit that break-even point even faster.
