1. Turn Off Your Extension Cords When They’re Not In Use
Whenever something is plugged in, it keeps eating electricity until the flow is stopped. The good news is most extension cords have a button that you can easily switch on or off. This is the most simple way. However, if it doesn’t have the switch you can always just unplug them from the wall. This is good because most of the time we have a bunch of stuff plugged in at once resulting in more electricity being eaten. Cut that flow off and save your money!
2. Unplug Everything!
Except for your fridge. You don’t want to do that. I thought I would add this in here because it doesn’t just apply to extension cords. Everything eats electric when plugged in. Don’t believe me? Is your TV off? If it is, look at it. See that red light? That’s the standby light. That light is on to tell you that the TV is off. Pretty ridiculous right? Your TV eats electricity when it’s off just to tell you that it’s off. LAME!
