Saturday Handy Tip - Power Strips for Your TV

Right now we are running our air conditioning a lot. We live in the South and have very big windows, so our power bill is likely to be very high. I'm trying to cut corners where ever I can, so I've hooked up the TV, DVD Player and Wii to a power strip. Because these are all machines that are on standby, they drain off a little power all day every day. So now they are on a strip I just hit the off switch for all of them when I am not using them, and turn them back on when I am. It probably saves me a few pennies a day, but as you can tell from my Twelve Cents article, that can really make a difference!
