    Used 10 bags thus far. Shut the stove off this morning
    and probably won't turn it back on for a couple days anyway.
    It's holding at 70F in here so I'm comfy.

    I have 10th bag in hopper. I keep thermostat set at 65 and usually heats up to 72-75 when on, then shuts off. Kicks back on when temp drops to 65. Has been quite cold here lately. Have new house and well insulated.

    I'm at 10 bags so far. Roughly the same usage as last year to this point.
    It warmed up a lot today so I won't be turning it on overnight.

    Without doing an inventory(I should have kept track!!) I would say between 15 and 20??
    During last week when it was 20, we did not go through more than 1 bag a day.
    And......we were warm and NO oil was used for heat!!

    12 bags so far and the house has been at a comfy 74! :) We are only running it between 4pm and 6am, too. I am enjoying not worrying about the price of oil!
