    I came across this old article from Reader's Digest when I was looking for energy saving ideas.  I was shocked to hear "Roughly 50 devices and appliances in the typical American home are always drawing power, even when they’re not being actively used."

    After reading this, I just unplugged my devices at home that are used only rarely!

    I try to cook all meals at home during COVID.  And when I order take-out, I try to order from restaurants that use paper packaging rather than plastic packaging.

    I have decided to turn on the fan rather than air conditioning when I work from home.
