Save Money On Gas, Water, and Electricity
, on May 19, 2008
Last week, the NYC Water Board approved a 14.5% rate hike on top of the 11.5% hike just a year ago. My last water bill was $150 — $60 higher than last year average (or 67%) — and this is before the bump. Combined with my electricity bill that went up $50 a month (or 38%) and gas bill that went up $15 a month (or 8%), I am looking at nearly $1,500 in increased expenses.
Unfortunately, my raise wasn’t anywhere near $1,500 this year, so I am effectively making less money than last year. And all this is before the price increases for other stuff like groceries and gasoline.
So, I have been looking online over the weekend for some ideas on how to save money on water, electricity, and gas…

The nice thing about all of this is that as I work toward reducing my water and energy consumption, I am also helping our environment. Cool!
