I am currently going to Texas A&M university and I am going to find a new apartment, one that is not on campus, to live on next semester. I just don't like living in the dorms, because it really cramps my style, and there are some other reasons why I don't like it as well. It is kind of stifling in my opinion. But anyway, I have an idea to look up http://www.texasenergycompanies.net/reliant-energy-texas/c/corpus-christi.html and try to find the electricity prices that I am going to have to pay from the cheapest company in the area.
I am trying to tabulate my expenses, and I should be able to fairly roughly estimate how much power my apartment is going to use on a monthly basis by knowing the energy consumption of all of the appliances, as well as how frequent I will be using them. Of course, some things will be out of my hands,in that I will probably be forced to run the heat more if it is really cold outside, and there are other considerations like that which will make my estimate more rough.
But regardless, any estimate is going to serve to help me to do a better job at helping me to calculate how much I am going to spend on my expenses. I am going to try to eat as cheap as I can to cut down on my costs of living. I am going to eat a lot of rice and beans. I have a crock pot, and I am going to use it to cook dried beans. I am going to start with some pinto beans, because I have been craving them for awhile. I want to make a whole mess of collard greens, some pinto beans, and some fried porkchops. That sure sounds good.Read more [...]
