Looking forward to gas...

I got my gas bill today.  I nearly choked when I saw the amount.  I've never had a bill that low.  Even when we lived in 200 sqft.  This is about half of what it was last month and all from getting a new water heater.  I'm actually looking forward to getting my bills this winter to see how the new energy efficient furnace will fare.  Who ever thought I'd look forward to seeing a bill?
Speaking of money, I highly recommend the book The Average Family's Guide to Financial Freedom.  I have a library of financial books I like, but many of them don't pertain to my circumstances.  This one does more than any of them.

  1. We picked up a new fridge a few weeks ago that's supposed to use something like $4/mo in electricity, so I know what you're feeling. Hooray for efficiency!

  2. Hey, more good news! On the news today it was reported that gas is going down a whopping 9%! We'll the 2nd lowest in the nation, behind Alaska (who are quite proud of their 1st place status).

  3. Alright! That IS good news. Now I'm looking forward even more :) Ha ha! Hubby would probably get pretty upset if we beat Alaska. He's pretty territorial with his home state.

  4. I don't even want to think about how inefficient out old outdated appliances in that apartment were.
