There are many. Most of them are really simple to follow too, and adds no additional cost.
At home you can: replace regular light bulbs with CFLs or LEDs, turn the thermostat 2 degrees down during winter, and 2 degrees up during summer, choose energy efficient appliances, wrap water heaters in insulation blankets, use less hot water and water in general, turn off electronics that are not used (don’t just put them to standby), run dishwashers when they’re full, recycle, plant a tree, eat local foods, don’t buy plastic bags for groceries and so on.
I added some guides to commuting as well, maybe you’ll find some interesting there as well.
