    We over at Reilly Painting and Contracting are trying to encourage our customers and readers to go "green" as well as save money. A public misconception about going "green" is that  it's expensive and it slightly hurts one's standard of living. Not so, says those over at TheDailyGreen. They came up with three simple tips to make your home a greener place and save you money.

    1. Programmable Thermostat

    Automatically adjust indoor air temperatures to reduce the amount of gas or electricity you use with a programmable thermostat.
    Cost: $115
    Annual savings: $180
    ROI: 156.5%

    2. Power Strips

    Use energy-saving power strips on office electronics and home appliances to reduce energy use when in "standby" mode.
    Cost: $20 for two strips
    Annual savings: $24
    ROI: 120%

    3. Compact Fluorescent Light Bulbs

    Replace 20 incandescent bulbs that are 60 watts and have a life expectancy of 1,500 hours with CFLs that use only 14 watts and last 10,000 hours.
    Cost: $3 - $6 per bulb
    Annual savings: Each bulb saves on average $4 to $7 per year in electricity
    ROI: 133.3%
