Almost exactly a month ago, I wrote about how I was seriously freezing my buns off. With temperatures all across the nation well below freezing, it’s no surprise many people are going to be accustomed to higher electricity bills. I know since I decided I was going to turn up the thermostat and not worry as much about it that I would be hit with a higher bill this month. I actually just received it, and it is $215.10. I was budgeting $200, so that was a little bit of a surprise. Luckily it’s not going to break the bank. I just won’t eat for a week.
Just Kidding. Although it was quite a bit of a jump from last month (it was $165 and I was expecting $120) it still could be worse. I’m very glad we didn’t buy a larger house! We try our hardest to keep the temperature low so we can reduce our carbon dioxide emissions as well as saving money.
I think it would be interesting to compare electric bills.
I’ll start, and I’d love if you would join in. You can comment at the bottom with your stats, or you can make your own post about this and use the neat Mr. Linky at the bottom!
Mrs Money, 1400 square foot house located in the Midwest/South, temperature set below 65 degrees, $215.10. I think this will give us a pretty fair comparison! Thanks for participating!
