less expensive heat

October 25th, 2010 at 01:20 pm

I got my heating bill this month and it will go down $5 a month for the next year since I have $60+ in credit. I will pay $43/month. I really like budget billing since once a year you can figure out how much you've saved in a year when they readjust your bill. I haven't had to turn the heat on yet this year, although a couple of days have been pretty cold. I'm getting by using electric throws. I'd like to keep it off till Nov 1, but may have to turn it on before then since they are calling for snow.

Several coupons came out in the last few days and since I wanted to drop my food off at the food pantry today I went to several stores to pick up the bargains first.


1.98 - 2 Yakisoba
-1.98 - 2 .50 q's doubled
FREE - food pantry items

King Soopers

2.00 - 4 cans Bumbleebee tuna
-2.00 - 2 $1/2 q's from Recyclebank
FREE - food pantry items

1.78 - 2 cans Muir Glen tomato paste
-1.78 - 2 .50 q's doubled
FREE - food pantry items

1.78 - 2 Mahatma saffron rice
-1.78 - 2 .50 q's doubled
FREE - food pantry items


3.49 - 6.0 Colgate sensitive teeth toothpaste
.28 - taxes
-1.00 - q
2.77 - got a $3.50 RR profit of .83 cents. This goes to food pantry

4.50 - 3 jars Skippy peanut butter
-1.80 - 3 .60 q's
2.70 - .90/each 1 goes to my neice the other 2 I'll keep

I dropped off 4 bags of groceries at the pantry. I've pretty much given up my goal of giving 100 items a month. The sales just aren't as good as last year. But I am still donating well over 50 items each month.

I finished reading the library book Saltation by Sharon Lee and Steve Miller. Sci/Fi - very good
