Put Those Power Hungry Applicances On A Timer

Even when electrical appliances are “turned off” they’re actually still drawing small amounts of energy. You’d be amazed how much energy is wasted in this low power state. JustDrawIt is sort of a home timer for anything that can be totally powered down without affecting functionality. Lamps, microwaves, toasters are some of the most common low power hogs. You have a visual queue as to how much time you have left until power down via a row of LED lights.

Although it’s a sound concept in theory, the last thing I want to worry about is how much time I have left in the morning before the toaster powers down. I’m rushed enough as is!
