Saving for Law School $50 at a Time (2)
We got our electricity bill today. After one month of keeping our electronics on switched surge protectors and being mindful of turning off our lights when we aren't in the room, we have reduced our bill from $99 to $66. Everything else has stayed the same. The weather has been similar. We're doing the same amount of laundry and we're home about the same amount. So the only explanation we have for the 3kWh/day difference in our usage is the fact that we're actually mindfully using less. So now we have a 30% savings to the environment and our pocket book. If this keeps up I might be able to buy a book or two for law school next year on our electricity savings alone. Can't wait till the fuel oil bill comes to see if our thermostat adjustments have made any difference.
