When I had my 1st apt.... 15 years ago or so, I think my electric bill was $30 tops!
Heat and water were all paid so that was still just straight up electric... but it's basically the same in the house we're in now...
we use oil / propane for all major appliances but the water heater, which is a storage system ginormous thing, (dont take a shower in the evening after a heavy laundry / bathtub day) and of course washer and dishwasher... but we are still at 250 a month!
I think the next energy sucker to go is DH's reef aquarium, as much as I hate to see it go, thats alot of lights and pumps to be running constantly.
Better that than my curling iron....
Not that there's anything wrong with that.....
