    Just got the new bill in that covers November. My 2022 bill is 1/3 LESS than my 2021 bill! $145 savings with the heat pump! So for Oct/Nov, a total of $188 in savings--and the winter has barely...

    OMG. That is a stunner. What a great job they did! Dramatic indeed, even though most of the colors are neutral/black/white/grey. While I sometimes think neutral schemes are boring, this is far from...

    Those are nice--do you have any ballpark as to price? Every year we do the shrink-wrapped plastic on the window thing, and it really helps a LOT, but it takes the better part of a day to do all the...

    Well, I certainly wouldn't have had the money for thousands of dollars a month. Our traveling teams only traveled to various towns in NJ, and none required overnight stay, but I know that there are a...

    No, if I were going into debt to support that, I'd defer the activities until I could afford it. If it were piano lessons, maybe get the kid one of those fake keyboards like River Phoenix had in...

    No, I'm saying that if there is one activity that the child is benefiting from, and they were talented in that activity, that would be the one activity I would do whatever I could to keep.

    I think if I were back in that position I would continue to pay for activities that they seemed interested in, did well in, and truly benefited from. Kids don't have to do everything that's offered....

    Yeah, the band-aid approach would be to get thermal roman shades or triple cell honeycomb shades or even both. Our honeycomb shades do help keep drafts out.

    I will go along with the basic purported health benefits of coffee, caffeine and all. I don't see drinking coffee as a health risk; in fact, I think it can be a boon, in moderation.
