Yippee! The new electricity bill arrived!
We did it! We got our electricity bill down almost $100 this month! Sweet :) If you've been reading along, you may recall that our bill went from about $57 to $181 because we used our heat on a couple of cold days we had. It only took me one quick phone call to the electric company to hear that our heat costs over $4 PER HOUR to run, for me to decide that we could easily layer up and control this unnecessary expense! So, that's what we did. We layered up (including hats and scarfs on some days) and it paid off! After my obsessive checking yesterday, our bill came in this morning... it's down to to $88! I'm so proud of us and excited that it's more in line with what we have budgeted. Phew! I can relax a bit. It's still a little higher than I'd like but that's probably from all of our Christmas lights, which I won't budge on. I just think little white lights are so pretty. We've since taken the lights down though so next month will probably be even lower. I can't wait!
