Be thrifty! Do two things at once, ask your Vietnamese neighbours can you sunbathe under their grow lamps.. Think bright, think light!

Harness the hot air from the Dail to run turbines!
Harvest the wind power from kebabs at the weekend after the pub!
Use the tidal power from the urinals after late bars!

Don't leave anything on standby mode, switch everything off at the wall.

I use remote control plug adapters that allow me to turn individual or all items in a room off at the plug without the hassle of having to reach behind furniture etc. When an appliance is not in use, it goes off, and when leaving the room I use the "all off" button to make sure everything is off. Has had a quite noticeable effect on my bill ever since I started.

Turn off things you're NOT using except your brain
