    I'll guess about 80 bags. We buy our pellets weekly (nowhere to store more than maybe 18-20 bags at a time) so I don't have a winter stash to count. We used 1 bag a day for November and most of December. Finally kicked it up to medium on Christmas. 1.5 bags a day now? Plus about 20% of 200 gallons of propane since the beginning of December. >.<

    75-85 bags so far. Gotta pick up a ton this weekend. Think I'm gonna give Fireside Ultras a shot. Got a coupon, so $188 fits the post-Xmas budget quite well.

    Yeah...You might just squeak by with enough fuel!!

    With all the wood you have, I figure Ohio will be treeless by 2020!!;)

    40 bags burned up. I have 60 bags left. I think I am going to be short. :p

    I have noticed a lot of pellets bags outside of Lowes and Home Depot. I am thinking they over stocked and the price may drop. :cool:

    Started out with 4 tons of Uncle Jed's. I've used approximately 1.7 to 1.8 tons so far of the Jed's. Figured I might run short, so I stopped into my local Menard's today and picked up a ton of Somersets for $175.00. If had more room, I'd have several more tons of those Somersets. Luckily, Menard's is about 6 miles away from me as the crow flies.


    Edit: FYI - I found out while at Menard's, they pay $3.00 no holla a bag for Somersets.

    I don't count and don't care. Started the season with and estimate of six tons and expect to have 2-2.5 left the first week in May, including what I might add in between.
    BURN BABY BURNNNNNN...!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    1 ton in and 1.3 ton left. It won't be enough so I'm trying to find a ton of good stuff locally that I can pick up in a couple of trips with the SUV and not have to pay a lot for gas or delivery.

    Something like this would be sweet! ;)

    All 3 around me carry Somersets also and are $200/ton normally, and $175/ton several times a year (Sale price of $3.49 a bag, or $174.50 to be exact)

    Darn. I have no idea. Next year I'm going to start keeping track. I've probably burned a couple of tons so far.

    Guessing we burned almost 2 tons so we should have 2 left. Seems like it's going to be a cold winter so I bet we might be a ton short. We only use the furnace when we clean the stove.
