I don't have just one way. We bought the 10 year light bulbs, and our bill went down. We also make sure to turn off anything electric when not in use. We actually unplug anything we don't use daily. Saving money on water bill, we shower no more than 10 minutes in warm, not hot water; wash clothes in warm, not hot water. We're thinking of trying that laundry soap that lets you wash in cold water, too. We have low flush toilets, and when our youngest bathes, we only fill the tub very little. We turn off the water while brushing our teeth, too. For groceries, we use coupons, and shop at stores that double or triple them, and shop when things are on sale. Most of the things we buy are generic/store brand, so that saves money, too. We buy certain things in bulk, so we don't have to buy them again for months. We shop at thrift stores or Ebay for clothing, except for underwear or socks. I could go on and on...

I have a few. Replace all incandescent lightbulbs with compact fluorescent. Unplug appliances not in use. Turn down the heat (our thermostat is set at 55 at night; 62 during the day.
