I canít understand that I have paid just under £1,000 for my gas and electric in the last year.
Now they have forecast that it will be £1,400 for the next year.
So, instead of paying Avro, £83 per month, theyíve upped it to £118 per month.
On the comparison sites, the cheapest is £122 per month.
Take back control of your finances Arty and do like I do....Kick direct debit into the long grass for a start...
My total energy bill for the last 12 months was £1326
divide by 48 = £27.60 then times 4 = and put away £110.50 per month.....
Obviously my bill was dearer than yours so your figure would be less.
You don't have to have a box to put the cash in, just partition your current account and keep track of how much you transfer into your energy account. I keep a record of my partitioned account on the computer. To make less hassle, I send in my meter reads every three months (quarter) and pay my bills online by card, also every Quarter.
The first year will be hard until you have a pot to take the money out of. It's your money Arty, so isn't it better to control your outgoings yourself than some faceless organisation having complete control of your account....I consider it time well spent...
