Daily Eco

I've said this before, UNPLUG! 5-7% of the average households electricity use is wasted on what's called "Vampire Electricity" meaning, unused electricity that is sucking life from the socket while the appliance is off but plugged in. Also known as ghost electricity. Make the step to get on board with this, assign each household member a room of the house to check before leaving. Once you do get into the habit, it becomes, well...habit.

I love this suggestion and have started to unplug just about everything in the extra rooms in our house. Because we're getting used to the WONDERFUL Texas weather, we've also turned our thermostat in the house up to 77 from 75 and have noticed a savings on our electricity bill.
