Who Turned Off The Heat?!
In January we managed to spend just a little over $7.00 for our gas bill, and February was even a little bit less. How you may wonder? Simple. All we really need to pay for is our hot water-- since our apartment usually is at a miraculous 70, or warmer. It’s the oddest thing. We keep the place set to 60 degrees so even though the apartment is nice and cozy warm, we’re not paying a dime for it. We figured that since we’re on the 2nd floor, we have neighbors on all four sides so were getting our heat from them. The problem is, last week the people below us moved out and a new family moved in. Apparently they’re trying to skimp on utilities as well because our apartment is now usually around 64! (This really isn’t that bad, but we’ve been use to the warm temperature for a while now) Well it’s finally approaching spring weather (optimistically) so hopefully we can bear the next few weeks with a little cooler of home. Perhaps we should just invest in one of these. I laugh so hard when I see the "Snuggie" commercial. It's a blanket with sleeves. I love how they make the blanket look like such a hassle- hahahaha. I feel like something similar to this has already been invented, a house coat maybe?
