I have replaced all my lights with CFL's and try to turn them off when not in use. How can I save more electricity? I'll be honest. I don't want to give up much personal comfort in order to do this.

I don't think this gives up too much personal comfort, but raise the thermostat a few degrees and turn on a fan.
