I am truly seeing the benefits of hang drying all my laundry, being a cheapskate on the heat/air conditioning, and unplugging appliances when not in use. This month our electric bill was only $53.57. Yes, you read that right.
I thought it was a mistake when I logged into the online bill payment system for our electric company. Our bill has never been this low and we’ve lived in this house for over two years! I was completely ecstatic and paid right away. I had budgeted about $150 for this month’s electric bill, so I have $100 extra to do something with this month! I’m going to keep it set aside for our vacation, but I am hoping that we won’t have to tap into that and I can use it for debt reduction when we get home. I’m not too worried about it though because I’m still glowing from our $53.57 electric bill!
It’s times like these when all the crazy green things I do make it worth it. Sometimes I think I’m crazy for doing the things that I do, but that’s okay! I’m hoping that we can continue this trend throughout the summer at least. We do live in an area that gets pretty warm and humid in the summer, and it’s the humidity that I have a hard time with, so we’ll see how it goes.
How much was your last electric bill?
