Unplug, don't just turn off! I just found out that in the average household 40% of electricity used to power electronice occurs when the item is OFF!

Kevin and I have been really good about unplugging almost everything in our house when we aren't using it, from the computer to the toaster to the stereo. Get into the habit, it becomes second nature to unplug after shutting off, trust me!

It really becomes easy? Because it seems like it would be a pain to always have to plug things in again before using them. I am going to try it for a week and see how it goes. Thanks for the suggestion.

It becomes habit really, I promise. Also hook all your electronics up to surge protectors so you can just switch it off and unplug one thing.
