Our gas and electric bills are so high. We have been trying to lower them by turning down the thermostat during the winter months when we are sleeping and when we are gone all day long. We have a programmable thermostat that allows us to just program these times in so it lowers and raises the thermostat for us. How many people are trying to lower their gas and heating bills by going with this method? What other things are you doing to lower your gas or heating bills each month? We are trying to save money on our electric bill by using very little electricity during the daytime hours. We try not to have the TV on during the daytime hours, which works for us since we don't have any young children here anymore. I don't use the washer, dryer, dishwasher, stove or oven during the daytime hours. What are you doing to help lower your electric bills each month? Is there something else that you can recommend for me and for others to do to help lower our monthly gas and electric bills? All these things can help save a lot of money each month which should calculate to a large savings in a years time. I love saving money as I'm sure that all of you do too.
