We can’t wait for our next power bill to see how low it is.
- We haven’t used anything but a fan to stay cool and have been taking chilly showers for a couple of months because our heating unit failed last spring.
We feel our last power bill was $175 for two months, so this coming bill should be about $135 we are figuring, which is nice because that is for two months of energy usage. The total cost to live in this loft is about $1400 for all bills, and our Heating and A/C tech roommate shoulders $650 of that each month. We cut her a deal and dropped her rent by $150 recently because she works a lot but earns less money working for the local corporation in town. So, our bills per month are around $710 to live in this nice new loft in the neighborhood center just a mile from the sea. But if she moves out our Heating and A/C rep buddy said he will pay $750 a month to live here, so that means we would be down to about $500 for living here, which includes all of the heating and cooling costs, plus Wi-Fi. The water bill is honestly low and food is about $350 a month, so that means we can live in this town for about $900 a month. We work for the heating business each week part time and after that we also make money teaching pilates and teaching football. Our band plays each week and we also make some money from that gig.
