Did you find "Time-of-use" metering helpful?

Looking for anecdotal data: when you switched to a time-of-use electrical meter for your residence
, what happened to your bills in the first year, and what changes did you make that seemed to have the largest impact?

Long story shortened: getting an EV in December, and my pre-EV electrical usage has been hitting LADWP "tier 2" rates, so I'm debating whether I should put my entire house on time-of-use metering, or just the EV.
If you've put your entire residence on time-of-use, what was the impact on your electrical bills short and long term, and what changes did you make to successfully minimize your peak usage (beyond the obvious "don't do your laundry or dishes during peak time)?
