2017 Utility Expenses

Continuing with our expense analysis for 2017 (kids, pet, travel, car), time for utilities. Yuk!  I definitely have to pay attention to our expenses here, see where I can cut down a bit more.

2017 Utility / Phone Expenses

Cellphone  $1,140
Internet / TV $1,320
Electricity  $710
Air con maintenance $390
Water  $680
Pest Prevention $470
Total $4,710


Cellphone includes the purchase of an Iphone that we are paying monthly and service for 3 phones. We do not have cable, but internet and basic TV could cost less…alas, I hate calling them to negotiate!

Electricity does not look too bad for an all electric home (2100 square feet) – that said, remember that we do have 5kw of solar panels and we are pretty good at keeping an eye on our usage so there is that.

How about you – feeling good about your utility expenses this past year and going forward?
