Last January I decided to be mindful and cut the use of power, stop wasting so much. I just got the power bill for the month, well mine runs from mid month to mid month and I pay on the first when I collect the rent. January the power bill was $309.91 October the power bill was $130.45 Now I know its was cold in January so lets start with Summer. June the power bill was $210 That is still a huge savings of around $80 and I never once did without anything. How are you saving hard earned money?

I am sure some states charge more than others. Like here, seems they know we hate the cold and jack up the price in winter.

That is wonderful! Our electric bill was $605 for September. The highest ever. No way are we raising the a/c temp.

We try to be conservative with our power too.

I'm always trying to save money. If the electric bill goes over 50, I think that's a lot. We put plastic on the windows to keep out the cold air. Last year, the bills didn't go over 200 for the winter months of December and January and February.

I think we need to down size, we live in a big house, when we were in the small house I was tripping over a $100 winter gas bill.
