Adding Up Costs For Electricity and Gas
I have been adding up what I spent last year, and it is eye opening to examine the totals. I spent $252.00 on electricity, which comes out so $21.00 a month. My gas total was $402.00, or $33.50 per month. I work hard to keep these bills down, and was pleased when I saw what I had spent for the year.
I use a toaster oven to bake potatoes, make croutons, and melt cheese on bread or tortillas. It's cheaper than turning on the oven. I also try not to flick on the lights unless I am in the room. My antique lamps have a low setting that provides a gentle glow to the room. I have LED light bulbs, and they do seem to use less electricity.
I think it really helps to have a small home. It's easy and efficient to heat and to cool. The mature trees provide a lot of shade, and the landscaping keeps the front porch cool. How are your gas and electric bills? Do you know your totals? I was afraid to look, but was pleased with the results.
