Change your printer fonts. Use less ink with Times New Roman or Century Gothic, which happens to use 30 percent less ink than Arial.

Run appliances, such as a dishwasher and clothes dryer, at night to avoid peak energy rates.

Fight static cling by placing a ball of aluminum foil in your dryer and reuse it!

Hang clothes to dry or dry loads back to back so the dryer doesn’t cool down. Also, clean the lint filter before loads to ensure your dryer operates safely and effectively.

Cut sponges in half.

Save money, calories and fat by substituting less than half the beef in a recipe with cooked lentils.

Fill your tank when it’s a quarter-tank full or more so you’re not tempted to go to a high-priced station

Save gas by keeping your tires properly inflated and taking the first parking spot you see.
