In the event that you’ve ever lived paycheck to paycheck, then you understand the cause of many of my challenges. There is something truly humbling about realizing you’ve got a fixed amount of money coming together, and you’ll have to make due with this sum for a designated period without exception. There is no one to back me up should I fall short on paying some bills or from an emergency when I abruptly need rainy day funds, so I’ve learned to portion out my paycheck perfectly to last the complete month. Occasionally, however, things can be miscalculated. That’s why I often wind up going without HVAC usage for the last third of the pay interval. The first three weeks for the month I can live comfortably, and I freely operate a indoor heating and cooling system. If it’s summer time, I’m basking in cool in addition to dry air straight from my central cooling unit in the safety of my home. I retain the AC moderately cold, and I look forward to entering my cool paradise daily after experiencing the heat in the open air. In the winter, I’m allowed to happily run my furnace and combat the chill from the outdoor air. That is, until I reach the bottom of my paycheck and truth hits; I have to cut rear on my energy expenditure for all of those other months, or I’m not going to make ends meet. The last week of each pay period is much less expensive when I can’t even think about touching the thermostat.
