I want to try cutting down on electricity by unplugging appliances when they're not in use. Does this make a difference and, if so, which ones make the most difference?
I just started doing this myself. We have been unplugging the toaster, coffeepot, computer, etc. Even though there is no power to the unit, it is still drawing on the power at the outlet.
I'm trying my best to lower energy bills this way also..we shall see.
