#9 Run the Dishwasher/Washer at Night before you go to bed

Most people don't realize that electricity rates are lower in the evening when the demand is lower. So, if you can wait to run dishwasher until you go to bed it will save you some green. Not sure you are really doing anything different here to save the environment. Also, start your laundry the night before. Wash your first load while you sleep to take advantage of lower energy rates and then hang that load on the line first thing in the morning. You will also save yourself time because you are washing clothes while you sleep and you don't have to wait to do the next step in your laundry routine. The clothes will already be washed and ready to be hung when you wake up.
