We're in the deep south and it is hot! Our power bill came in yesterday at a whopping $340! I am on total save mode now... I am now unplugging EVERYTHING before going to bed at night or when it isn't in use... the tvs, dvrs, modem, dvd players, microwave, lamps, cell phone chargers, and have even considered the washer and dryer if that would help. We keep the overhead fans on to help circulate the air in the house and keep interior doors closed. We have bumped up the AC- even though it is sometimes uncomfortable- we'll manage. I'm going to get my husband to lower the hot water heater temperature. We keep all lights off during the day and open the blinds. How else can I shave $ off of our power bill???
