Living off the light from my laptop

We put up an air conditioner last night. The behemoth model in the living room will have to wait until my hubby's buddies can assist.
We spent the night in the bedroom.
We may be spending more summer nights in the bedroom.

We haven't had an electric bill in over 5 years. At this new apartment, we almost had a heart attack looking at the electric bill for last month.
Everything in our place has a dimmer. I turn everything off and leave the hallway light on the lowest dim setting possible. Yet our bill is still over $100.
I am even thinking about putting tealights all over to provide added lighting. Forget the romantic aspect of candles. Thom from Queer Eye knows the price of electricity in the city. I swear, I may have to ban reading after nightfall to save on wattage.
