One real energy saving method I always try to use is - switch off the box.

I am amazed at how many people switch on their TV's and then leave them on for hours, while they go into the kitchen to prepare a meal, wash their clothes or go outside to prune their roses or whatever.

We have to be more selective in what we watch and try to get out of the habit of just leaving the TV on all day even though no one is in the room viewing it.

I know it is an obvious point but it can make a huge difference to your monthly electric bill. Don't get me started on what we watch either, be selective. Your brain will thank you.
