About a ton and NEVER enough pellets on hand.

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. >.<
about 65 bags..... always a year in advance stashed at least.
Gone through about 1 ton of the CleanFire Pacifics so far.
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.
70 something bags Lowes, ($209)Green Supreme as of today. 40 left.
Cumberland MF-3800, has been on since Mid Oct.only source of heat, low 70's in main living room. mid 60's in bedrooms.
Heating @ 1300SqFt of one story ranch. Stove setting usually 4-1 no more than 4-2.
Just short of 2 ton,... burned no oil,.. no wood,.... just pellets,... sitting on 5 ton of Somersets,.. a half of ton of Powerhouse,.. 10 bags of Stove Chow,.. and 10 bags of GS,... thinking I'll make it. .
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.
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.
See my sig.....plenty on hand.
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...!!
man. i wish we had menards here. those prices are insane.
I keep hearing about this place. I want to check one out!
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)
You ain't right! I like you!
For both my stoves, a total of 43 bags thus far.
Darn. I have no idea. Next year I'm going to start keeping track. I've probably burned a couple of tons so far.
93 bags so far. First 54 were the blend, been burnin' softwood since 12/9/12
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.
