To save energy...

I replaced my lightbulbs with the compact ones. Not only do they use less energy, but they last way longer!

It is a good idea to boil a full kettle of water up and use what you need for a drink,then put the rest
in a flask....one large flask full can make me 3 mugs of my green tea

GET SET Install a programmable thermostat to automatically set temperatures.

WATCH THE WATER Turn off the faucet when you brush your teeth or wah your face. Buy showerheads that are low-flow and water-efficient.
Good suggestions, thanks.
