July was a bit cooler than normal — where's the global warming we saw back in 2007? — which led directly to a $100 savings on our electricity bill. (Keeping the thermostats at 75° helped a lot, too.)
Of course, I wasted a good bit of that on our water bill by setting the sprinklers to come on too often. (I dropped the frequency by one-third; we'll see how that works.) To add insult to injury, the cost of water has gone up to $4 per 750 gallons, a 33% increase over last month!
