A pleasant surprise; the lower electric bill
As with all line items in my household budget, our electric usage is closely monitored, with $150/month previously been allocated for electricity. Although 2 members left the home in June and electric rates dropped effective in July, we have continued to watch our useage and conserve.
My recent bill shows that these actions are paying off, confirmng that the 2 former housemates were far from conservative (almost daily incidents with multiple lights left on, for example). While we stopped using the window A/c units (removed in Sept), I have resorted several times to elctric dryer usage but still, our average daily usage dropped 6 kwts compared to last year.
I am comfortable dropping my electric budget to $100, as we came in several months now, at under $100. $93.51 this last bill.
