Changing your light bulbs to the fluorescent light bulbs is a start. Will save money with your electric bill, still make sure you turn them off when you leave a room! Look up using products you have in your home for cleaning, such as vinegar. Take your own bag when you go shopping for groceries, or buy one of them there. I dont know if you can or not.. But hang your clothes outside to dry, and only run the dishwasher when you have too. Hope this helps a bit!
POWER bills are one of the best ways to save money.
Power being used to an gr8 extend
- Stop using Washing machines...some manual washes
- Dry clothes in sun
- Switch off excessive appliances
- Use CFL's & LED lights
- No dishwashers..manual job
- Manual dusting instead of vacuum cleaners
- Switching off, if excessive use of Airconditioners & room heaters, water heaters..only when required..these appliances are Power guzzlers
- Curb excessive spending
- Hanging out less with friends ..lol
- cutting down on cellphone talktime
- using less of makeup and stuff...u appear to be a lady..thats why (men always spend less on that, anwyay )
Thats enough i think
* place a 20 oz bottle full of sand, dirt, marbles, whatever you like, into your toilet tank. It will save you just *slightly* over 20 oz of water per flush. This is an old trick.
* When gas is cheap it is OK to leave your car idling I suppose, but at current prices it makes sense to shut it off when sitting for more than a minute or two. Remember, when you are parked and idling you are getting 0 mpg, whatever car you may be driving.
* Don't collect grass clippings and leaves, mulch them into your lawn.
* Let your grass grow an extra 1/2" or so before mowing. It will hold moisture better, and save you a few mowing's a season.
Look at the following hubs have a lot of frugal and some green living tips:
Make the following changes (if possible):
Clothesline instead of a dryer
Hand-wash instead of dry-clean
Cut down on your use of the car - go to the grocery store only once a week, group errands together and do them at once, or on the way to somewhere else, and try walking or biking to do errands
Stop using paper towels, napkins, tissues - use cloth alternatives
Stop using plastic wrap and plastic bags, get washable containers with lids
Get in the habit of turning off lights every time you leave the room (and harp on everyone else in the house to do the same!)
Turn off the shower to "soap down", then turn back on to rinse
If you have a baby, switch to pre-folded cotton diapers and wash cloths instead of disposable
Make your own cleaners using vinegar, baking soda, and salt (become my fan and I will write an article on it soon)
Make sure you have a full load of laundry before washing
Switch to compact flouresent bulbs
Start a garden or join a community garden to grow your own herbs, vegetables, and flowers
I could go on, but I guess I should write an article on the topic
Try looking into getting a geothermal air conditioner. They are wonderful! http://www.geothermalcontractor.net

Green and frugal are one in the same. In the end, the fewer resources you use the less money you spend.
Hey, I just published a hub with a bunch of tips here: http://hubpages.com/hub/Frugal-Living-Tips
I admire your sense of civic and personal responsibility.
1. Live close to work. This reduces you carbon footprint and saves money.
2. Walking to work is free and carbon-neutral.
3. Bicycling to work is nearly so.
4. Next in line would be commuting by scooter (80-120 mpg) or motorcycle (35-120 mpg).
5. Live in a smaller space. Less cost, less carbon footprint.
6. Buy local foods. Less carbon footprint from refrigerated trucking, lower cost than eating out.
7. Drive to visit family, don't fly. Airplanes leave a very high carbon footprint per mile and are expensive.
I have a new site where I write about green living.
