for everyone it seems.
Remember last month when my power bill was "paid" due to an open overpaid account that they credited to my current one? I just checked my bill for this month (online) and I owe less than 10 bucks!
I wish I had an overpaid old account every month.
That said though my power bill is higher than it should be IMO. I'm basically averaging $40 a month which I know isn't bad. However, this last month I made it a point to turn things off constantly to see if I could get away with 2 months worth of not paying
and it didn't work. I think there is a wiring issue in my living room. One of the bulbs went out but not because it burnt out. It's being weird. I'll have to talk to my landlord about it. I'll definitely be trying harder this month to keep it down. My house is maybe 600 sqft. No reason to have a power bill that "high".
I know Christmas was mentioned a page or so ago....I'm totally planning on things I can get with food stamps.
I am going to make these for every one.
I'm planning on doing "families" of them so each family will get a set with the correct amount of snow people. The recipe has them connected but I think I'm going to do them seperate and make them hanging ornaments. Then I'll print this poem (scroll down)
for each group. Then, because I'm paranoid that just seems cheap
, I'll be making a bunch of Sweetie Pies
. Most of that can be bought through food stamps and very few things are out of our norm (and therefore not included in our budget).
Dh and I were looking at houses the other night after having watched HGTV
. I found one here in town that with the lowest possible down payment that the calculator would allow with the longest loan term (basic 30 year) we could get this house for about the same each month that I am currently paying. The house is a 4bdrm and almost 1500 sqft! My current place is a 2bdrm and under 600 sqft. Once I did the math for it the house is only about $44 a sqft! We are in the process of reconciling and while I know it would be bad to just jump and make a purchase like that it is soooo tempting! Luckily, I have some major social anxiety and hate talking to people, even on the phone, so I'm not likely to call the listing agent and do a walk through. Never thought I'd be happy about that!
With our income not split in two like it currently is we could so afford it! Maybe I'll do a drive by....
