High electric bill? Consider unplugging some devices around your home.

When you turn a device or appliance off, you probably assume that it’s truly off and no longer drawing power. But that’s not actually the case. Many common— from your laptop charger to your printer — run certain functions when plugged in and even if the device itself isn’t on.
Luckily, the solution is pretty easy — just unplug the appliances. Unplugging them will actually stop energy from silently draining out and increasing your bills, saving you both electricity and in the long run.
