Save money on your circuit breakers by carefully resetting them when necessary.  Do not get in a hurry and flip several at the same time.  Do one at a time, and wait a few seconds if you need to do another one.  Doing too many at the same time can cause a power surge that can damage the whole panel.

Frugal footnotes:

Here are some frugal tips to help with circuit breakers.

- Avoid turning circuit breakers on and off.  The switches are prone to breakage.
 
- Test your switches once, and mark which areas of your house each switch covers.
 
- Be sure and keep a flashlight next to your circuit breaker box for convenience and so
that you don't make a mistake or hurt yourself in the dark.
