    Without spending money? Hmm thats a little tougher. unplugging your electronics and appliances when your not using them can help save a few dollars off your bill. Try not to use your AC or heating systems. Wear more layers if your cold and open windows if your hot. Don't leave lights on if your not in the room. Instead of doing multiple loads of laundry throughout the week try to only do one load or 2 loads a week, depending on if you sperate whites from darks. If you want to spend a few dollars and get some flourescent light bulbs you can save more money. Incandescent bulbs put out energy in heat than light so if you want to stay cool in the summer switch to flourescent bulbs. Hope this helps! smile

    EcoAsh pretty much covered them all... some others I would say is to take shorter showers, wash your dishes by hand, don't use the dishwasher. If one side of the house is real open to the sun, cover the windows so that the sun can't shine in and heat up the house as bad. If you sleep with the tv on, figure out a way that you can sleep without it.

    don't waste electricity. Don't have lights on in rooms that you are not using. Unplug devices when you are not using them.
