Decreasing Gas Bills…Posted: January 12, 2012
Remember how I suggested hang drying clothes instead of drying them?
Well, this last month laziness won over thriftiness and it showed on our monthly gas bill (we own a gas dryer). My husband opened the statement and stated,
“What? How did the gas price increase by $20?
I replied, “That has to be wrong! We were out of town for a week!”
We scrutinized the bill and realized that it was indeed correct! I remembered that throughout the past month I began throwing the clothes in the dryer instead of hanging them. I justified myself by saying,
“It can’t make that much of a difference.”
Well, now I know it does. $20 x 12=$240. Once again proof that the little things really add up.
