Time To Whack Your Mole!

Okay folks, it's time to walk through your house or office and find out where you can whack the ever-more popping up mole of electricity usage!

If you don't know what I'm talking about check here:

Text is and Link is

For me this time it was the:

1)desk lamp (opened the curtains instead)
3)coffee pot
4)microwave oven

Come back and tell me what all you had to turn off or unplug!

    I just have to tell you - when I first read your blog title today, the first thing that popped into my head was
    Chuck E' Cheese!

    I've been learning to turn off the water cooler at night and turning it back on in the morning. DUH! Of course, right now it is pretty cool outside so I've left the cool water off for now.

    @frugaltexan75 - I've never been to a Chuck E Cheese! No wonder my children are warped, huh? hahaha! We did have a restaraunt here in our metro area with a big game room though and that's where I first saw the Whack-A-Mole game.

    @JanH - is this like a swamp cooler, keep your house cool type apparatus or is it a keep your drinking water cool dealybop?

    I agree with you, getting in the habit to turn unneccesary electrical stuff off is important to our financial fitness as ImaSaver shows us so well!

    @boomeyers-Unfortunately yes, that's still part of the Whack-The-Mole Challenge Rulebook. I'll take it to the board of directors, but you know those darn Authority Figures, they take forever to instigate changes!!

    In the meantime, just whack the mole and turn off unused electrical appliances and unplug those energy suckers all the while smiling w/your eyes all bugged out and wringing your hands, saying "I'll get you, My Pretties!" Yah, that should start to really worry them about week two!
