Tips on How to Conserve Energy While Saving Money and Helping the Environment

Conserving energy is a big concern for everyone these days - if not for the sake of helping the environment, then for the sake of saving money on utility bills. One myth about greening your home is that it takes a lot of money to start with or that you have to buy all-new appliances if you want it to make any difference. That's simply not true. Here are six easy ways you can "green" your home without paying an exorbitant amount.

1. Stop Using Paper Towels
You can keep a couple around for emergency spills, but for house cleaning and regular use, go for cloth washrags. Keep a lot of cloth rags on hand so that you always have one handy when you need it, then just toss the dirty ones in with the laundry whenever you do a load.

2. Unplug Unused Electronics
Even when your electronics are off, they can still consume lots of energy if they're plugged in. Save on your electric bill by unplugging your laptop, phone, and even your TV when they're turned off or you're not using them.
