I have to admit that I always disregarded our electric use at home. Growing up, my mom always told me to turn off the light whenever I left a room. 

When I say ‘simple steps,' that is what I mean – I'm a lazy gal who isn't willing to eat dinner by candlelight (despite the romance factor), have a cold shower, or handwash my clothes. 

I realized that saving tons of money on the power bill is easy. Here are 7 tips for cutting your electric bill in half that are more than just turning down your thermostat.

Unplug

One thing I didn't know is that when your phone charger is plugged in, it is still using power, even if your phone is not plugged in.
