How To Save $4.00

In the refrigerator at work, I found about 100 single serving packets of butter (about 500 grams) that are still fresh. These are leftovers from meetings over the past 6 months. I'm going to bring them home and use them. Otherwise, they would probably sit here for months unused.

Progress on Water and Gas Consumption

We just received our water and gas bills. For the 2 month period ending in June, we reduced our water consumption by 8% over last year. Good, but not great. Our water company has targeted a 20% reduction for every single family. We've cut back by quite a but, so I am actually suspicious that we may have a water leak somewhere. When we renovate our bathroom, I'll have the plumber check it out.

As for our gas bill, we cut it by 10%--down to $27 for the last month. Again, not bad, but I want to save even more money. It's all about saving money!
