My SCE portion of my electric bill will be around $25 for this month. My natural gas bill is around $20, my average water bill is about $50. No much more I can do on the utilities front.
I have cut most of my expenses with two goals...
- Don't be penny wise pound foolish (think longer term).
- Enjoy life and our life style without wasting money.
Next few weeks upgrade and replace 2 older computers. Decide what is next on the medical and detal insurance front that would be best and safest for money in the long and short term.
Next goal over the next 12 to 24 months pay off the one car we have payments on. So, I can start saving for the next car. I hope by then I can get a plug-in hybrid or totally electric car that meets my needs.
In 5 years I will be buying out the solar panels so, that I can free $140 a month for more useful things.
Maybe the next low hanging fruit although not as bit is looking at out television service (Dish Network) and seeing if they have any deals. Also, to a lesser extent our home and cell service.
