Waste Not Want Not

With my push to save money, I've made some interesting discoveries.

Until recently, I have been using at minimum 121.45 Watts of electricity every moment of every day.

The breakdown is as follows:

refrigerator: 76W
denki pot: 33W
FAX/Telephone: 5.2 W
Internet Hub: 3.55W
TV (turned off): 0.5W
Stereo (turned off): 0.8W
Computer Monitor (off): 2W
Printer (off): 0.4W

I can only cut so much electricity use (after all, I need my refrigerator to cool down my leftovers!), but when you really sit down and do the math, it's amazing how much waste there is surrounding you.
