ok, so it is 50 million degrees here… and we know that… we have had an issue with our electric bill recently, last month was over $300 and we just can’t afford it to keep going up, so we are looking at ways to save electricity.

We were doing the obvious stuff, our AC thermostat is set at 84 during the day, 80 at night so we can sleep, turn off all extra lights, running the dishwasher less often, etc. But this one never occured to me..

with being 50 million degrees outside my garage is even hotter…like 70 million. and DUH, it never occurred to me that the chest freezer we have out there is having to work even harder to keep things cold! We have moved the freezer into the house, and dropped the temp on the water heater some, hopefully that will help.
