Check out these great tips from Natural Health Magazine. 
I love these and think you will too!

Fear greening your home is too expensive?  These simple changes can pay off big every year:

  • Choose a laptop over a desktop model with a monitor.  Savings: $45 a year
  • Ditch paper towels in favor of reusable cleaning cloths.  Savings: $150 a year
  • Trade in your current showerhead for a low-flow model.  Savings: $180 a year
  • Install a programmable thermostat that automatically sets the temperature based on how hot or cold it is outside.  Savings: $250 a year
  • Replace the air filters in your furnace and air conditioner unit every three months (dirty filters make the units work harder).  Savings: $80 a year
  • Use an electric teakettle instead of heating water on the stove.  Savings: $40 a year
  • Download music (legally) instead of buying CDs.  Savings: $300 a year
  • Lower the brightness on your TV.  Savings: $15 a year
  • Unplug your TV, DVD player and stereo before bed.  Savings $50 a year
  • Swap disposable zip-close bags for reusable thermoses and containers.  Savings: $400 a year on lunches for a two-child family
