Me and my family need to cut back off of the energy so we've decided to do whatever it takes to save as much as we can. We have replaced every light bulb with the energy saving bulbs (though we rarely use the light bulbs at all anymore), we don't use the heater nor the fans, AC we cannot afford and we literally have candles all over the house and also both regular and kerosene lanterns for use outside and also inside as our light for the night. What are other ways to save money on the energy bill? I don't care how ridiculous it may sound, as long as it's logical and it works then we'll do it.
