Electricity, Electricity!





In my constant effort to reduce our electric bill I bought a timer for our extra freezer and refrigerator. So far, it's worked well. These two appliances shut off at midnight, and come back on at 6 AM. No one is opening them during that time, and they stay plenty cold. This way, every 4 days they have been off for an entire day. That should add up to some savings.

Good Idea! I have been switching off the main power for the computer and all those lovely attachments (speakers, printers, internet). Hoping that helps!
