Did you know that even when household appliances are turned off, most are still sip some power from the grid, and this will definitely affect your power bill at the end of each month. Good magazine has an interesting chart in their latest issue that details how much energy your vampire devices use, and how much it costs you to keep them plugged in. You can see the interesting vampire shaped illustration here. For example a plasma TV, for instance, can cost about $160 per year just to keep plugged in. I’m sure that this guide will be quite useful for those people who want to earn every penny. – Via – Lifehacker

To combat this massive amount of wasted energy, designer Paulo Oh has come up with a simple plan, to unplug them. His solution is called “Hang On Outlet” and provides a “shelf” for you to hang unplugged power cords while they aren’t in use. This idea might help you save some money on your monthly energy bill, but is also a good idea for organizing your power cords, as we all know that sometimes they can be really messy.
