Still. $800 over 2.5 years vs $9K over 2.5 yrs.
Or, to be a tad more accurate, $0.76/load vs $25/load.
That's an interesting meter you have.
In the same way that I know I can cook dinner at home for just a few dollars, I still go out to restaurants several times a week and spend $20 or more on a meal. Sometimes I'd juat rather not cook, and I won't really notice the difference in the price, at least not in any long-term sense.
