PP&L should stand for “Pounce, Ponder & Loot”! Rates were raised 30% over last year, but hanging wash on our outdoor clothesline (We use the dryer for Victor’s clothes only) – and I only use the dryer on rainy days) & hand-washing dishes (no dishwasher use, perhaps 1-2 times a month to keep it clean!) has this month’s bill up “only” 7.5% compared to last April.

There’s savings somewhere in there, but I am absolutely longing for a month where the bill is the same or less than last year. Can she do it? Stay tuned…and turn those lights off when you’re leaving the room! If you’ve got money saving tips, send them my way!
