    Been thinking a lot about how to cut back on our power bill the last few days. Here is what I have come up with and I would love to hear your thoughts on this. Electricty is cheaper at night so that would be the best time to use it I would think. So, with that in mind, I leave our water...

    We had an ice storm last night, and while it was nothing like the one that hit the east coast, it was still a pain. The power was out for 12 hours. How does being frugal play into this? We had plenty to eat in house which was good because the whole town had no power so the gas station...
