The power company just left from reading our meter so Jack figured out what the difference was between the last reading & this.Since the kids have gone off to college we have cut our consumption almost in half (53%) and that's with the dehumidifier going.

Woohoo! :yippee:

That's great! I wish we could do that. We had a semi empty nest for a while. But, our 2 oldest "boys" are back so. we are back to a family of 6.

LOL! We noticed this this summer when our last went away for 2 months. The utilities dropped and the grocery bill dropped, while we ate better than ever!

My sister told me yesterday that since her youngest left and her second youngest is in London for a few months, her utilities bills have dropped by $200 and her phone bill has halved.

Viva la empty nest!

Whoa, that's a big difference. For some reason I see no difference in our bill since ds left but we have gone through the hot season and the bills were about the same as last year even with the increase so I guess we have saved. But truely, the kid was never home when he lived at home, lol. Grocery bill is wayyyy down though. :D
