I received a letter in the mail a few days ago from the power company. They are raising our rates another 14%. Now, the letter states that they haven't raised our rates in years, but 2 years ago, instead of 'raising rates', they tacked on an 18% fuel charge to our tab. Same thing to me because my bill still goes up regardless. Nickel and dime, nickel and dime us to death.
Anyway, now I have to come up with a 14% deduction on our other bills to make up the difference - I'm gonna have to think on it, but the first three items I have the most influence over are power useage, food cost and gas consumption. Boy, I have some work to do!
