Do you unplug electronics and appliances when they are not in use? I found a list of appliances that is suggested to be unplugged when you aren't using them. The link is: Log In This is a direct quote from the article: "The average U.S. household spends about $1,900 a year on energy costs, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. And the DOE says that anywhere from 5% to 10% of your residential electricity is sapped by devices that are plugged in 24 hours a day." I was very surprised to read that 5% to 10% is from devices that we leave plugged in! I am going to work much harder to unplug all the electronics and appliances that my family is not using! I used to be really good about unplugging things, but I slowly stopped. I think I certainly need to be more cautious! What about you? Do you unplug electronics & appliances when they are not in use?
