I would like to thank everyone on this board with your ideas on how to save on my electric bill. My bill was always between $220 and $230 a month. I stopped using the dryer. I hung my laundry in the house. Because of this I didn't have to use the humidifer too. I also start to wash all my clothes on the quick cycle. (it works all of our clothes came out clean even the kids) I also started to run the dishwasher on a quick cycle. I try to cook in the crock pot as much as possible. Well the end result is a smaller light bill. It is now down to $120 I am so happy.

Fantastic!

Do you have the drying cycle on the dishwasher turned off? Sometimes you have to just disconnect the heating element. Interestingly to me, I found the dishes dry just as fast if you open the DW as soon as it stops running and pull the shelves out.

I have never used the dry cycle on my dishwasher. And just think that I thought I was saving on the bill. I didn't think that I could still get it down with a family of 8. All I can think about is the amount of money that will go into savings for a rain day
