  •  I am a cheap SOB. (11+ / 0-)

    I live in a desert, and my folks were raised during the Depression, so I am often dismayed when I see a co-worker just running the sink.

    I also tend to have 1 CFL light bulb, at most, on when home at night (that and 2 monitors provide all light).

    But my electric bill average only about $23/month.  Most of that, I suspect, is the refrigerator.  And the computer, which is always on when I'm home, as I spend almost all of my time at it.

    So it is possible to be frugal (cheap).

    My power bill went down by about 20% when I switched the incandescents for CFL's.  As those go (they average 4-5 years old), I will look into other options, like LED.

    I am not religious, and did NOT say I enjoyed sects.
