HOW much??

Um, reality smacked us in the face today when we opened our latest utility bill. Our energy bills have increased 10x since we bought our house. We pay two now - gas and electric. I guess we never realized before how much the apartment paid for us (hot water, washer and dryer). I guess we can write some of it off as paying for two places during 10/1-10/15, but really...we were both a little shocked. I promptly went around adjusting thermostats and turning lights out. Time to buckle down. Plus it's winter, which costs more in general - more lights on longer, more hot water for showers, more heat. What are your favorite tips for keeping your energy bill low?

UPDATE: We've heard from friends that our bills seem outrageously high. We're investigating!!
