      My husband is very pleased with all I have done. We are a one income family.
      This past winter, they raised the price of fuel.. almost tripled.

      I insisted
      that the thermostat be set at 56*. We couldn’t afford to pay a huge bill.. so
      why create one?

      We all wore multiple layers of clothing and in the worst of the
      winter, we live by the lake, we all slept in one bedroom and then turned on a
      high efficient heater for 1 hour to warm the room, and then had I got up a half
      hour prior to everyone.. and turned it back on for a half hour. At the end of
      the “season” according to the stores, I was able to purchase electric blankets
      from $8-12 for double and queen sizes.

      These run for only pennies an hour.. and
      we only turned them on to heat our beds. Then we didnt need the spare heater.
      All in all, we kept the bill down, electric and gas remained under $250 a month.
      The energy company actually accused us of cheating!
