Turn off your appliances and unplug them when not in use. I'm sure you've heard this tip before, but have you actually followed it? Take a brief walk through your home. How many appliances are plugged in but not in use? The microwave, the television? What about your phone chargers? Make a habit of unplugging these when not in use so that they do not continue to draw any electricity. You might be surprised at how much electricity you can save by doing so.
