I got slammed and I didn't even know what hit me.
My electric bill was over $500 this month. That’s three times higher than normal and nothing has changed with our usage. After a little digging, I realized I’m getting totally ripped off and you may be too. It’s called “slamming” and it is happening all over New Jersey right now. The good news is you can stop it.
We loved living down south. Great people, pretty surroundings, but try getting a pizza. You want a bagel? Good luck. That said, I've never really given thought about Mexican food in Jersey. Since I've been back, that's changed. We actually have some good Mexican here.
Living near the Jersey Shore has its perks; beautiful beaches, tons of great outdoor activities, and of course there's always something going on. That being said, there is something I really am missing during these peaceful off months at the shore, and it's something I didn't think I'd miss.
