Are you leaving your computers and appliances on or plugged in 24/7 even when you are away from home and/or sleeping? Why not get in the habit of unplugging rarely used items like toasters, computer printers and even unnecessary cordless phone handsets? What if you start to use the power saving features on your computers and turn off those surge protectors for the sixteen or more hours each day when not used and even more when not used daily? How often do you make toast? Why not make a toast...

I found this Vampire Calculator from Duke Energy that I want to share ... This cool tool says it best, " Slay Your Energy Vampires The average U.S household spends $100 a year on plugged-in electronics they aren't using. Spooky, right? Tell us what you've got, and we'll show you how much you could save by pulling the plug." https://www.duke-energy.com/en...e0XbV6nyD9RLAzKXuYj4

We've installed several smart plugs since joining OhmConnect and now reduce a large portion of our passive power usage

Note: I have communicated with people who have had energy audits (free) from their electric suppliers and who have been given some cool freebies... smart bulbs, surge protectors and even one who was given a free replacement Nest Thermostat. Everyone's mileage may vary but it does not hurt to ask for the free audits just for the professional testing and advice on ways to conserve energy and money.

Check with your utility to see if they offer rebates for upgrading to energy efficient appliances and/or LED light bulbs. Some utilities give them away for free. Some will even give you power strips that have a "sleep" mode if you forget to turn them off. They want to get load offline, so they are happy to help you reduce your KWH usage.

Re: Using LinkedIn to build interested audiences and gain credibility

Moore Income ·
I ignored LinkedIn for quite some time but about a year ago I started focusing on it more. It really is a good tool for building an audience and connecting with people with very specific interests. When it comes to sales, while you can get them on LinkedIn, some people take things too far and just spam people with messages trying to sell their product or service. In my opinion this is a waste of time and makes me even less likely to buy. As with any social media platform, once you start...

Thanks for all the info. It is something I guess I don't pay as much attention to as I should. I will have to take a closer look at my energy consumption now and see how I can save more energy.

Re: Using LinkedIn to build interested audiences and gain credibility

Deon Christie ·
Same here @Moore Income , but once I realized LinkedIn's potential I started digging deeper. I find that the tool works well for attracting group members, and I use it only to send a welcome message to new connections. Automation can be a great tool, but moderation is really important. And with Linkedin especially one need to be extremely cautious with automation. Because not all automation tool content is accepted by LinkedIn. And may in some instances result in getting suspended or even...

Using LinkedIn to build interested audiences and gain credibility

Although it is nice to make a few extra dollars on the side. But most people however do work toward the " quitting your day job " Kind of online income. The effort requirement however is exponentially more demanding. Making a few extra dollars online require a lot less effort and can in most cases be fairly easy to achieve. But if you are thinking of working toward the quitting your day job kind of income, then be prepared to apply maximum effort. Which primarily involves building interested...

Did you know that the average cable or satellite TV box with DVR costs around $8 a month to have on 24/7? Did you know that some makes and models of these boxes use more or less than others? Did you know that many states have deregulated energy costs, allowing consumers to shop for lower per kilowatt hour rates? Did you know that there are simple swaps we can all make to reduce our usage? That's as true with electric as water as natural gas... and some swaps to habits can add up to huge...

Debt Pay Down Tool - Now THIS is Cool!!!

Men On A Budget ·
Without question, the biggest budget buster than my wife and I uncovered in our Penny Hoarder journey was the ridiculous amount of credit card debt and the accumulation of interest being charged on the interest, month after month. Have you added up the total of minimum payments and the amount of interest alone from just one month? We were aghast at how many of today and tomorrow's dollars were going to pay for yesterday's expenses... hundreds and hundreds of dollars each month. We found a...
