I'll confess when I was first told to unplug stuff to cut the electric bill, I scoffed. I need to save money than $1 a month. But as I talked to people and did some research, the savings could add up. I'm not going to save a fortune, but why waste even a few dollars a month on idle electronics.
So I unplugged the blender (which had a small LCD screen), the electric calculator, the Xbox and Wii while not in use, the printers I rarely use, and few more items.
It will be hard to judge the savings, but it's worth a shot. I'll let you know how it goes.
