Conversion to LED bulbs, up front costs more but the consumption is so small on a relative basis that over the life of the bulb you do end up ahead. Plus when you do inevitably forget the light on in your closet while gone away for the entire weekend the amount wasted is tiny by comparison. ;)

Great point. I think the long run idea is to develop the habit of keeping your lights off – thats where the savings should eventually come in.
