    That's a huge list. I am trying to get my household more green, and will take many of these suggestions.
    Questions about #50 - turning off your freezer - I know it can maintain cold for quite a while but how long?
    Does it make sense to put your freezer on a timer so it only runs half the day (say 8 - 8)

    Good idea, never thought of that....well, we don't have a freezer in use!

    I haven't even read the whole list yet, maybe we should start a list of our own!

    turning off the freezer...wouldn't that then just make it run that much harder/more frequently when you do have it runny to bring it back up to temp?

    And some things sound ok, like using earth friendly dryer sheets, but why not skip those entirely and line dry? That is even more eco.
