    I think simple changes can make a huge difference.

    If you have a lot of appliances plugged in at all times but rarely use them, unplug them.

    Change your lightbulbs to more energy efficent ones.

    Call all of the companies you pay bills to, such as your cable company and see what kind of deals they are currently running. Usually they can help you lower your bill without changing the services.

    Even if you don't have solar panels installed, you can buy solar outdoor lights at places like target and walmart for very cheap.  The best part is that you don't have to dig up your yard to wire them; just stick them in and walk away.  Also, for around $100 you can buy a personal solar panel that can recharge rechargable batteries as well as all your gagets.

    What a brilliant excuse to have dinner by candel light.

    Some ideas -- shop around and do business with the company that has the lowest rates (only works if there are multiple companies obviously!).... see if your utility company offers off-peak rates and use your larger appliances (washer, dryer, dishwasher) accordingly, always pay your bill on time to avoid late fees, be diligent about turning off lights and other appliances when not in use, wash your clothes using cold water, take shorter showers, line-dry your clothing, turn down the heat in the winter, and don't cool your house as much in the summer, if possible use a fireplace or other alternative heat source in the winter.
