Save Money By Saving Electricity

I started doing this years ago and some of you probably already know about it.StartMyBudget.com says:
Flip the switch in your electric box off! (The "breaker box" is usually pretty easy to reach)
My hot water heater will hold hot water for 2 days. I flip the switch on every 2 days for about 4 hours and then flip it back off. I told a friend about this just last month and she was shocked at her power bill! It went down $66.00 from the price of her last months electric bill.
It will become a habit.... and it will save you lots of money in a years time!
That is a really great idea...I heard that years ago, but totally forgot it! Wow! Those are big savings in today's economy! Thanks!
Just remember to turn it back on! I hate cold baths!
