Decreasing your utility bills is probably the thing that offers most flexibility and it can be done in many different ways. Consider adding insulation, especially in the attic and around water heater, in combination with elements keeping the draft to a minimum. Programmable temperature control units are a small investment for the benefit they provide. Doing laundry using cold water is sufficient for most clean clothes needs.
