Greener Future Friday: Lower Your Electric Bill!

Who wouldn’t want to lower their monthly bills and save some energy at the same time!  My green tip for the week is to work on lowering that electric bill!  I already posted on trading your incandescent light bulbs for CFL’s.  Another great way to save electricity is to unplug electronics and chargers when they are not in use.  There is a small amount of electricity used when computers are plugged even when they are not in use, when cell phone charges are left plugged into the outlet even when the phone is not attached.  I’ve been going around the house this week, unplugging appliances and electronics that aren’t in use such as my kitchen aid mixer, piano key board, cell charger, breast pump, lamps that are rarely turned on, and more.  It’s easy and takes very little time.  And with the economy down who wouldn’t want to lower their bill!
