I'm Back! Save on Utilities!

I haven't been online due to working and the summer and other personal obligations in my life so I want you guys to know, I'm still alive, I'm here, and I am going to make more of an effort to post more often.

I recently switch to greener energy delivery.  I didn't have to change electricity companies or providers.  You just call and switch suppliers and your rate will be lower.  Believe me, you'll notice a difference!  My bill with the constant A/C blaring during the summer is almost $20 cheaper this year per month!

You don't need a new meter or any stupid equipment installed either, nothing is more annoying than switching providers and waiting for installations and all that junk.

I switched to North American Power, but I recently received an ad in the mail for over a penny cheaper to switch to Next Era Energy.

If you do the 100% sustainable energy, its not always cheaper, but even 25% sustainable energy helps.  Ever little bit improves the state of the environment and doesn't tap into resources we may some day run out of so, if you are saving money, also, why not!

Ok, so here's a little list and the areas they cover in the United States.

North American Power

Next Era Energy

New Leaf Energy - Green Energy for Texas Residents

Fairpoint Energy - 100% Wind Energy Power

New England People's Power - New England, New York, and District of Columbia (Washington, DC)

Glacial Energy 20 states (partnerships with 50 different utility companies)

ENH Power - New Hampshire

Georgia Power - Georgia Residents

Clean Currents - Wind Power (Electricity) for Maryland, District of Columbia (Washington, DC) & Pennsylvania

Constellation Energy - Texas, Georgia, Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio, Illinois, Michigan, New York, Pennsylvania, District of Columbia (Washington, DC), New York & New England (not Maine)

Tennessee Valley Authority - Tennessee, Kentucky & Alabama

N Star - Massachusetts

First Choice Power - Texas

Northeast Clean Power - Connecticut

Con Edison Solutions - Connecticut, New York, Maryland & Pennsylvania

Champion Energy Services - Texas, Illinois, Pennsylvania, New Jersey & Ohio

Seattle City Light - Seattle, Washington (Washington State)

The People's Power - Eugene, Oregon

Palmetto Electric - South Carolina

Your Family Energy - New York

Accent Energy - Dynowatt - Texas & New York

It took me forever to compile that list.  I tried to be thorough, but it seems harder to find companies in the midwest and on the west coast.

I hope that's due to the fact that their local energy companies have already transitioned to using partial or all green energy.  I did my best :)

I'd like to thank MyBlog Spark for hooking me up with this opportunity and Paula would like to thank them, too, because I gave my movie tickets to her and she and her husband got a much needed date night!  As for me and the boy, who is not so little did enjoy some of the spoils, namely a box of Cheerios, one of our favorite healthy breakfast treats1  I love these guys!

Oh, and this is a great way to collect box tops to donate to your local school so they can get cool stuff for the kids to enjoy!  Be sure to donate your Box Tops for Education to your local school that needs them most!


My Blog Spark Review - Progresso New Light Soups!

My Blog Spark sent me a package so that I might experience the deliciousness of Progresso New Light Soup flavors.  They send me a can of creamy potato, broccoli, and cheese light soup as well as chicken pot pie light soup, two deliciously classic flavors that I can tell you are two of the best tastes I have savored in quite some time.

In addition, they sent me a roomy and cute blue and orange trellis make-up bag with a flip brush, which I am always happy to have.  If you know me, you know I have more make-up than Hollywood, lol.  Anyway, these soups fit into a healthy diet and are a good treat when you are craving something cheese and creamy that may otherwise spoil your diet.  They are also hearty treats for your family and a good lunch or light dinner paired with a little snack like some yogurt pops or something else healthy.

Good stuff!  They have my vote!
There are 40 new flavors for 100 calories or less.
Chicken Pot Pie Soup and Potato, Broccoli,  and Cheese both have 100 calories.  Half a can is worth 2 Weight Watcher's points so you could eat a whole can for just 4 points!  Now, take that to the bank, lol, if you bank points.  They come in convenient tabbed peel off topped cans and come complete with Box Tops for Educations, moms, grandparents, and teachers :).
