Things you will need include:

You will need an understanding of energy use and how it decreases the amount of money in your household or office budget.

Determination to overcome the challenging waste of excessive or unnecessary energy use.

The corporation of essentially everyone who uses the facilities, including the elderly and children.

Perhaps, even some type of monitoring assistance for anyone who doesn’t get it or forgets.

The ability to physically make it so by conscious effort and reminders.

Perhaps a small bonus or prize as incentive for employees to decrease their personal office energy use.

Perhaps a small pleasurable treasure treat for children to decrease their household energy use.

Enough room in your wallet or budget to fit the extra money you get to keep after paying the energy bill! And a great big smile and perhaps some petty cash or mad money!


Realize that wasted energy equals wasted money! Any excessive or unnecessary energy use will cost you more money. Once you come to terms with the way that you use energy daily, you should be able to determine a means of reducing your energy use, thereby saving you money.

Unplug any appliance you are not using!

This is the way it works, so listen up. If it is plugged into a working outlet with an active electrical current, even if it is not in use, it is Using Energy. Sure, it may not be using as much as it does while it is actively being useful, however by being and staying connected to a power outlet any item will unnecessarily be sucking away at the energy source. When the energy source is actively providing an item even in small amounts, you are charged for that energy.

Unplug even small appliances!

Therefore, the most sensible and resourceful thing you can do for yourself, your home or your office and especially for your budget is to ‘Unplug It!’ If you take action now and enlist the corporation of everyone using the facilities, whether at home or in an office, you can make a sizable difference in the amount of money you have to pay at the end of your energy billing cycle.


Test the theory by doing it yourself

If you are skeptical or simply in the mood to surprise yourself when it comes to your next energy bill, you should test the practice and find out for yourself! Remember, when there are others using the utilities, it is essential that they cooperate with your efforts of unplugging anything that is not in active use, no matter what the item may be, if you or they are not actively using it, the item should be totally unplugged from its power source, since this is the only way you can reduce the amount of energy it uses.

Enlist the help of others

When you are dealing with other individuals in the home or in the office, you may need to actively monitor their use and their abilities to unplug any items they may have been using. If you find you are running into difficulties with cooperation, you may want to consider some small incentive that will increase their desire to cooperate with your decision and efforts of reducing your energy bill, which will save energy and save you money.

Reduce energy, unplug what you are not using or need

Yes, it is true that you can save energy and money by unplugging any appliances that are not in use, regardless of whether you are home or gone for the day, the week or the month. Taking the time to unplug any appliance will help to reduce the amount of energy you use and it will make a remarkable difference in your electric bill every month you practice unplugging any appliance that is not in immediate use.

Test it for yourself and be amazed at how much money you can save by reducing your energy use. Make sure that this reduction of energy also includes turning off any lights or water that is not in active use. Remember to make some room in your wallet or budget to hold the extra money that you did not have to pay for energy.


Smile, heck you may be so proudly surprised that you can Grin or even Giggle!

Share the knowledge and encourage others to test it themselves.
