 Good for you that you got to notice the difference. Too often when you do all that stuff you see almost nothing saved.

OMG down to $175. How many square feet is your house?

honestly i don't know how many square feet this place is. all i can say is that we have finding out as we have been doing repairs that this place was never put together correctly and the three additions that have been done since the 1930s were patchwork and shoddy.
for exile when we moved in we ddint know that the windows all leaked and there was wall damage due to being improperly installed. there was no insulation in the attic or the walls....

other way our house is smaller than our neighbors and their heating bills have been in the $300 range. our water bill on the other hand, has yet to be more than $30 per quarter. since the last place we owned was a high water and low heat. it seemed like a good trade off.

but i think the real savings came from the dishwasher dying. we have been delaying buying a new one for five years now, but as it still worked we never replaced it. last Montgomery it caught pn fire, so by winter we will get another.
