Invest in some solar outdoor lights
If you like to have some lights on outside your home at night, consider using solar-powered lights instead of ones that use electricity. They can lower your electric bill and better still, they can be placed in lots of spots that are far from an electrical outlet. (You will need to place them in a sunny location, though, of course.)
You can find plenty of solar outdoor lights for $10 or less each — some of them multicolored and/or in fancy shapes, such as butterflies or stars.
