Go wireless

Sometimes it pays to get away from the two-dimensional electronics for a little while. Literally.

Ditch the Facebook friends to spend a little time with people you know from the real world (not to be confused with "The Real World").

Organize a game night, a poker party or a craft night with friends.

Close Candy Crush long enough to grow something healthy in your yard. Or, have some fun with a container garden on your patio. (Real tomatoes don't require wattage. And if you eat what you grow, you can save on your food bill, too.)

The goal: Get unplugged, unwind and connect in a way that has nothing to do with power cords and networks. You'll save some electricity and recharge your own batteries at the same time.
