    We moved into this home in March, 2010. When we changed the utilities over to our name, we were told that the previous owners' "Budget Plan" utility bill was set @ $280/month. They would not put us an a Budget Plan until we had lived in the house for 12 months, and they re-figure the budgets in...

    So I went to my utility company to see if I could get a copy of the bill sooner. They said no. But the person waiting on me commented on how low my bill was. I immediately said yea, I sweat in the summer and freeze in the winter. The guy says, oh, that is how you do it. When he made the...

    Hi all! Our utility bill has been a bit rough on us lately, especially with how insane the weather has been. It'll snow one day and be warm enough to melt it the next! I'm looking for ways to keep our utility bill down all year, not just during the summer. We average about 290/mo in the winter...
