Put on a Sweater
When it's cold out, and you're relaxing at home, put on a sweater. A thick sweater is worth 4 degrees. To put this in perspective, most experts assume a 2.5% energy reduction per degree. That's 10% off of your bill.
If a family of four lives in the midwest, and their heating bills from November to March range from $250 to $400, each of you put on the ugliest sweater you can find (make a game out of it). Turn the thermostat down $4 and start saving money.
You could save as much as $175 a year and look like a dork in the process, but nobody cares because you're at home.
