Electric Bill

April 28th, 2006 at 04:36 pm

I just checked our electric bill for this month....and it is $115 (compared to $163 last year...yeah!!)

Our electric bill is for our home and my parents little RV home. We are all I am always happy when the bill is under $150.

My (stubborn) dad insists on paying $50 of this bill for their 'rent'...boy did we argue over that one when the first moved here...but he still wins most battles...Smile

So my portion is $65...I budget $100...I wished I could say the rest could go towards my challenge, but I think Id best put it in an electric bill reserve for this summer's bills as they are predicting a warm (hot) one.

    I always budget for my highest bill (so far$160) that I have ever had. Any left over goes into my challenge money.

    The electric bill is one that I opt for the average billing cycles. I pay every month, $150.00 at this point, instead of every other month and then having it fluctuate. I know this means there is money in someone elses' acct instead of mine...........but I like the ease of the bill being a known factor.

    I called to see if I can get the bill lowered, but they won't do it til I've been here a year. We shouldn't be been on the average plan this first year anyway, so I've already bucked their system. By Oct, it should be lowered, I'm guessing to at least $120.00. And, by July, my "navy" guy in the RV will be paying half of the electric bills. Continuing to shave money off this, on to the others!!!

    I do the average thing with PG&E too. Funny thing though last month I didn't have to pay anything we were so far ahead. I don't know how that happened, but it was nice! Summer is our cheaper months because we live in a very mild climate. It rarely even reaches 70 degrees in the summer.
