I can’t believe it is September already. We went for a walk yesterday evening and it was dark by the time we got home, even a couple of weeks ago we would have easily got back in daylight.
I got a letter from my gas and electricity provider last week telling me they plan to move me to a new capped rate – that is more expensive than the deal I am currently on and well above their standard rate. They assured me this is still excellent value though. I am now moving to a new power supplier that is a far better deal and the electricity is about half the cost. It has to be said that my old power supplier was very honest about its charges, but all the information supplied made me just wonder why I would want to stay with them if they charge so much. Perhaps it encourages most people to stay, as it saves them the hassle of moving, but I reckon my power bills should come down by about a third.
I need to make sure I don’t waste money because I am now on a mission to try and buy a house in the next couple of years. The more I save, the quicker this might happen...
