My hydro bill today is the lowest it has been in years. A good part of that is putting the clothes on the line. Sure they are not as soft, but I can live with that. We only use air conditioning at night as it helps us sleep. Last year we used 2 window air conditioners steadily. It is relief to use only one and only at night this year.
I always used hot water for my baths and having been told that is not good for me (Is anything good for me?) LOL. I have started using luke warm water..
We haven't been using the stove for every meal me used it only once a day. Of course now with the canning and pickling season starting, the stove will be used a lot.
With summer being the time of the big bills coming in, taxes, insurance etc. it is nice to have one bill lower.
My car still isn't working so gas being so high is not a problem right now. Walking to get what I need is better for me anyway. When I get too many groceries at once I eat too much. So getting just what I can carry is good all round. LOL.
So I am trying to keep moving as much as my body lets me and I will see how this does along with eating within my allowances.
Love your support and comments. Sparkpeople is such a great all round site.
