Energy bills are ridiculous in the summer and winter

It took me for what seemed like forever to be able to learn how to follow my budget. After nearly going bankrupt, and needing my parents to bail me out, I finally learned how to budget and keep my income more than my expenses. I don’t know if I thought the figures would miraculously meet at the end of the month, but I was a mess. Now, it’s quite an accomplishment when I am able to have some money left over at the end of the month. I now go over my bills and budget them carefully, but I am trying to overcome an insurmountable hurdle. My energy bills are unbelievably higher in the summer and winter than any other time of year. I know that it comes from the excessive use of heating and air conditioning. I like my comfort and not being able to have my thermostat at seventy in the summer, or at seventy-two in the winter, will leave me very uncomfortable. I know that I will need to learn to turn the thermostat up a few degrees in the summer and use less air conditioning and then in the winter, turn the thermostat down to maybe sixty-eight and not count on the furnace nearly as much. Isn’t that why I have summer and winter clothing?. Maybe if I can conserve energy by using less heating and air conditioning, I can keep my energy bills under control. I’ll also need to learn to take some of the money I have left over in the off months and save it toward the energy bills.
