    I love the name “vampire plugs”. It’s something I have become very conscious about. When the clocks changed last week I realized that there are 3 electric clocks on appliances in my kitchen in addition to the rechargeable-battery-powered wall clock. The more I look around my house the more little glowing lights I see (take a walk around your house or apartment at night to really spot them).

    Have you heard of the Kill-a-Watt meter? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16882715001&Local=y
    I’m going to get one soon. It will help you to know what electronics are using the most energy. Now I just wish designers would give us the option of switching off all those constant power eaters.

    Keep up the good work.

    I just recently learned to unplug our cellphone charger and the coffee pot. Unplugging is an easy habit to form. I like all four of your suggestions, Rosie.
