Two more months of using the fireplace

I’m pretty happy with my last power bill I just got for $155 for the two month billing period.

  • Last year at this time I got a whopping $600 power bill for my little flat for two months.

Maybe this doesn’t sound like a lot in the States, but over here in Europe it was a big bill. Normally I was having power bills of about $60 a month during the high months, but that all changed with the war and problems with electricity across the globe. I guess they fixed it somehow because the bills are much lower. Some local businesses had to shut down their companies because their heating and cooling bills were too high to pay and their power ended up getting shut down. I am lucky because now I have a roommate and she cut my living expenses in half. Now I can live for about $1000, which includes running the central HVAC system when I am not using my fireplace to stay warm in the wintertime. I cook most of my meals at home and can live off of about $200 a month for food if I don’t go crazy buying a lot of fish or other pricey meats. The local business near me where I shop has a great refrigeration system and they keep the place air conditioned very well while still keeping their prices fairly low. I work online for a couple hours a day and play music on the weekends, and these two income streams seem to be enough to cover all my monthly bills. Thank you to my HVAC system for working so well too!
