Is it worth it to insulate our apartment?

2.5 bedroom apartment, top floor, in Texas. Would any simple, DIY insulating tricks help? If so, what, how, where to get them? Difficulty: Can hammer, can drill, probably shouldn't be allowed to use power tools.

I notice some small details, like the door seems to not be too flush with the frame, and the windows are pretty thin. We are intending to stay here at least two more years; but huge renovations are obviously not on the menu. We generally spend ~100 on AC in the summer, because one of the roommates needs the AC around 75 to be comfortable. Winter, we just put on more clothes the 2-4 days its justified. Ideally, we would want some options that would pay for themselves before we move out (we will eventually, i'm sure!) Oh, and that the owner won't get mad about.
