Draconian measures? I think not!
As I have my lunch of leftovers today, I am also sipping some leftover tea that I reheated in a pan on the woodstove, such as is being done in the image above, difference being, however, that I use a lid to speed the process along. Why heat the electric stove or even the microwave when I already have an energy source going and available?
Some may find some of my "tricks" to be a bit over the top, Draconian. These tricks, however, are helping me to keep my expenses as low as possible, sometimes slipping lower than I even anticipated. Case in point, my new electric bill:
By keeping expenses lower, it frees up funds for other things such as my recent purchases of a living room, a dining room,as well as a dinette rug, along with 2 under pads. This works for me, I have priorities such as putting every extra penny into savings for our next home.
