Buy in bulk. Use two ply regular tissue not extra thick charmin or whatever. I have a roll of papertowels in my bathroom. After I dry my hands off I unfole the towel and lay it on the sink to dry. I reuse it again and again until it starts to fall apart and then use it as tissue to wipe with and then throw it away. But frozen vegetable instead of canned, save the rest for later. If you have a cell phone, get house phone disconnected. Have a dinner get together with friends, keep leftovers. As far as utilities, always cut off lights when not in use, if you don't watch cable that much, then get it disconnected. Use nightlight to navigate through the house at night rather than turning lights on to go to bathroom in dark. Unplug toasters, blenders, and other appliances that are not used all the time, they run up your electricity bill without you knowing. Wash clothes at night if you wash at home, the meter runs slower after 5pm when the utility ppl are not working.
