The garden club had the most interesting speaker on Thursday, in the person of Dusty Williams.

Your microwave is one of the worst.
Dusty suggested plugging your appliances into a power bar and flipping it off when not in use.
Another suggestion was to turn your hot water heater down to 120 and wrap it in an insulated blanket.
