At Work:

  • Instead of paying $4 for a latte, make your morning coffee at home
  • Look for clothing that doesn't need to be dry cleaned

 

At Home:

  • If you always use your cell phone, you may not need a home phone
  • Turn your thermostat up and your lights off when you leave
  • Reuse and recycle everything, from plastic baggies to food containers
  • Rethink paper napkins and paper towels, reducing waste reduces expenses
  • Lower the temperature on your hot water heater
