    Question What watt bulbs do you use most?

    We have mostly 40 watt bulbs here. I went to change a bulb and only had a 75 and 100 watt bulbs to replace it with.
    Too bright! LOL
    I have to admit that our house is dark though. (both with artificial and natural lighting)

    We use 40 and 60 watts bulbs. Last year Walgreens had GE bulb 4 packs on sale for 10/ 1.00 so I bought 100 so I think I'm stocked for life.

    We use 60 watt also but I do like to have 100 watt when I'm quilting.

    I run the whole gambit, In the fixtures that have 3 or more lights I use 40 watt, singles I use 60 and 75. Then in our table lamps next to our chairs I have the ones that on very low they are actually a night light and they go up to 100 watt. I use this not dh especially when I'm knitting or crocheting while watching tv. In my sewing room I have lights on big arms I can move around and those have 100 or 150 watts, I'm not sure.

    my dh will only replace a light bulb with 100 watt! Sometimes it is way to bright, but thats the way he likes it.

    We use 60 watts in the table lamps and 100 watts in the ceiling lights. I have really poor vision and I have to have bright light to work by especially if I am quilting or sewing.

    We use 60 watt here. I think that's bright enough. Who knows it might get brighter as I get older. *L*
