Selling a car to CarMax:

“I’m considering selling my car to CarMax and was wondering if anyone has had any experiences– good, bad or otherwise — with doing so.

Any thoughts, tips, etc. would be very much appreciated!”

Is my kwh usage reasonable?

“I have a small studio apartment (450 sq ft), and according to my meter I’ve used about 200 kwh this past 30 days. Is this normal? I have only had the heat on for maybe 30 minutes to an hour this month, since our hallways are about 90 degrees (seriously, there’s a problem somewhere) and without heat and the with the windows closed my apartment stays at about 72. The only major appliances I have are a gas oven and a refrigerator. I have about 4 lamps that stay on several hours every day, and a tv that stays on maybe an hour a day, and is unplugged the rest of the time. I kind of feel like I should be using less electricity, and that maybe there’s a problem with my meter, but this is the first time I’ve had a place where utilities aren’t included so I’m not sure what’s normal. Please help me understand if you can!”
