There are many easy things that you can do. For example, drive the speed limit. The faster you drive the more gas you waste (and the more it costs you). When your TV is off unplug it as a TV is still using energy even when "off" (an easy way to do this is plug your tv into a surge protector, and then using the switch on the surge protector to turn the power to the tv on and off). You can also air dry your clothing, this will save you money, and prevent natural gas from being burned. These are just a few tips, if you want more you should have no problem finding a book about the topic on amazon.
