    Because I've noticed that since I've switched to CFLs, I buy light bulbs about once a year, if that. And I'm bad about turning lights off. I used to buy bulbs all the time.

    However, I have noticed the LEDs are getting cheaper and brighter. I just replace an under cabinet light with 3 led buttons that link together. Way brighter, doesn't get hot. Really important in under cabinet lighting.

    •  The oldest bulbs were handcrafted (0+ / 0-)

      And not quite the same as the more recent mass-produced incandescents. That might explain why some of them have lasted a really, really long time.

      I actually have no idea how energy-efficient those very old bulbs are but since there's so few of them I don't suppose it matters a great deal.
