  2. Unplug Appliances When Not in Use Even when appliances are turned off, they are still using small bits of energy if they are plugged into the wall. These small amounts of energy can add up over the long run. Get into the habit of unplugging any appliances you are not using at the moment. This includes toasters, coffee makers, kettles, and any other appliance you may have. 3. Don’t Raid the Refrigerator Often Although you have likely heard someone say, “Don’t stand there with the fridge door open” at some point in your life, you may not realize the reality behind why they used this statement. Leaving the fridge door open is a surprising energy waster. Get what you need and close it up again. Skip the moments where you are just lounging in with the fridge door open, hoping something exciting and tasty will pop into your vision and grab your attention.

  E Is for Everything Put everything -- burner, gas tubes, igniter -- back together. F Is for Fuel Check the fuel supply to make sure there is no rust or dents on the propane tanks. If there are, you're going to need to immediately replace them. G Is for Goodnight, Grill Where are you going to store our grill? If it's a fixed outdoor grill then it's going to have to stay where it is, and you can keep the propane tank there and connected to it. Make sure you put a protective cover over it. If you keep it inside during the winter then you're going to have to disconnect the tank and leave it upright outside. Now it's time to check the owner's manual to make sure you disconnect the tank properly. To keep bugs out, tape plastic bags over the gas line openings of the grill. Make sure you store the tank in a cool and shady place that's away from dryer and furnace vents and not close to pet's or children's play areas.
