    Unplug things that aren't being used.

    When ever I wash dishes in the dishwasher, I always stop it before the dry cycle. It sounds silly but it really reduces the energy used. I also use my clothes line to dry whites, I don't have to use the dryer and the sun helps to fade out the spots that my husband gets on his t-shirts!

    I'm the last one to go to bed and the first one up. Before I go to sleep, I unplug the freezer and unscrew the fuse to the water heater. There is still plenty of hot water to take a bath in the morning--even before turning the water heater back on! I plug the freezer back in and everything is fine.

    I have everything I don't use unplugged. I also use only CFL lightbulbs. Plus when I buy any appliance, ie. washermachine I focuse on low wattage and low water. So far my electric and water bill has gone down a lot!
