Hmmm.....I'm thinking maybe $550. Gonna have to double check that.
I'm half asleep and not understanding the question.
Is budget billing where you work something out with the company? If so then no.....we just pay whatever they are that month. We know roughly what each bill will be and one is a little extra we have money set aside for that.
I can't tell you what they are each month because Jay does the bills.
We do budget with our gas.
Catherine, budget is where they charge you the same price each month, even if you don't use that much and then the rest goes into credit so when you use more, it just uses the credit. Works great for winter. Instead of getting a $500 gas bill in December, it's still going to be $350.
Ok, that's what I thought. With us it would be pointless to do that. Luckily our electric and gas is never crazy high. Unlike when we lived in Phoenix. THOSE were some ridiculous bills. And they have it set up so you're only eligible for special rate plans after a year or something.
Oh ok. I thought that said 'drive and save $$' so I was confused lol. To save money we turn off lights when we leave the room, unplug things when not in use, in the winter I like it warm, but just wear warm jammies in the house or a sweater to avoid cranking the heat. In the summer I keep the ac on about 76.
Paula-what temp do u keep the thermostat on in the winter and do you have electric or gas? I'd die if just my gas and electric cost $600 a month! Our gas is never over about $70 in winter and $30 in summer and electric is about $80 in summer and $60 in winter I believe.
We have gas, my house is set to 74 in the winter. I HATE it cold, HATE it! We're hoping the new patio doors will help keep the heat in and the cost down.
Our bedroom was an addition so it's electric heat in there, But it's never up too high.
I don't know, don't pay too much attention to it. Electric, is because of all the pc's. DH and I NEVER shut ours down, so 2 are ALWAYS on. Kayla's is on a lot too, she only shuts it down lately because she needs a new fan and it's loud. LOL
There is ALWAYS at least one tv, usually 2 during the day.
