Turn off the lights
This is the simplest, most common way to save electricity, and it really works. Start paying attention to how many lights are on in your house at a given time. Be mindful of how many lights you really need to be using at once. When you leave a room, make a habit of turning off the lights, every single time. If you really want to go all out, have your family use just one or two rooms at night, rather than spreading out all over the house and keeping your entire home lit.For maximum electricity savings, use candles! This old fashioned system of providing light at night is effective, romantic and peaceful. If you dont find it practical to use candles every night, try doing it just once or twice a week. Be careful doing this with little kids, though make sure all of your family members know how to handle candles safely.
