What was your utility bill this month?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
We just moved into a new house. Our utilities are bundled into one bill by the city and we just hot our first bill. $280!!!! I've never had a bill this high!

It's an old house (built in 1896) and it has gas furnace. It'a also two stories. I think it's outrageous though...we never leave lights on, we keep the thermostat on 65 and for the first two weeks we didn't even have a fridge or washer/dryer.

Our eleteric was 285 but that included 2 weeks worth of Christmas lights..plus we were supposed to be moving this month so we didn't chop firewood for fireplace and I didn't put the plastic around our windows ( we have shitty windows in this house it not even funny) or pull out the door stops the jKorea stuff I do to keep heat in our house..otherwise it goes straight out windows..you can literally feel cold air come in through the windows..can't wait to be out of this house
