February Electricity

I put some serious effort into saving electricity this month. I didn't tell my husband, and yet he didn't even notice!

Changing our thermostat settings was no discomfort at all, and came with the added bonus of getting the cat to sleep in later. My husband never asked why we were watching TV in the dark or with only one light on - and why would he after all? There's no need for the kitchen or hallway lights to be on while we're watching TV in the family room! And we snuggled together under blankets, with the cat helping to keep us extra warm :)

So, I promised to reveal my savings. It looks bigger than it actually is since February was a shorter month than January. So, a little math later my adjusted savings over January is $28.83!

I'm pretty happy about this, especially since we were gone 2 weeks of the last billing period. The average temp for February was 43 degrees and for January was 41, so I think the warmer temp balanced out our absence. I'm excited to see how small I can get my bill over the next few months before we turn the heat off for good in the summer!
