    Default It works!

    I recently went from a lush two income life to a teacher salary one income life. I came to this website to relearn good spending habits. I used to have good habits in the old "student days".

    well, It is working! I wanted to say thank you. the electricity bill came down 150 dollars by not using the dishwasher, or dryer, turning the a/c to 76, unplugging all unecessary items. My hubby kept plugging things back in, I explained to him if it's warm, it's using electricity. And he's an engineer!

    The temps are still in the mid 90s.

    and the food tips and cooking tips are working as well.

    yay! thanks!
