I received a letter stating our electricity would be
increasing and for the average household it would be
$3.57 per week.
Thankfully we have installed solar panels & are waiting
for the process to be finalised.
But we have been brainstorming of ways to save money
and I was thinking that most of them are good for
the environment too. One of the ways is to wash our clothes after 10pm when the off peak electricity is cheaper, I struggle with this, but last night we were watching
The Tour De France that started at 10pm and finished at 2am. I remembered at about midnight :-)
Today is cold and rainy and I am making pumpkin soup from a whole pumpkin that cost me about
$2-70 and it will go a lot further than 1 can of soup.
I'm also cooking ratatouille (which my family lovingly call rabbit pooey) in the crockpot.
(I use the crockpot a lot, it uses so little power) they love it with what we call Loveheart chicken
(technically chicken schnitzel, but as you can see in the photo it does look like a love heart)
