Re: Electrical savings
Just keep in mind that gadgets are usually just that - GADGETS! The only savings will be in the weight of your wallet after having paid for said gadgets.
The simplest thing that you can do is unplug all devices not in use or install power strips so the flick of a switch cuts power to multiple items at a time, such as an entertainment center. If the device has a clock, remote, or active sensors of any kind it's drawing and wasting power.
Beyond that, use lower wattage light bulbs, and/or switch to fluorescent bulbs.
