Giveaway; Kill A Watt EZ Electricity Monitor (SRP $60)

Congrats to my winner: AMY
 
So, have you guys started working on your list of New Year's resolutions yet? Mine are pretty much ongoing ones- try to keep up with my newfound healthier eating habits and find ways to save money! One of the things that I always hear when it comes to saving money is that the little things do add up.  That's so true- it's the little expenses that end up breaking my budget at the end of the month.

The same thing is true with our home energy usage- it's the little things that add up to raise our electric bills.  And from what I understand, even the appliances that we turn off are still using electricity (and adding to our bill!) when they are left plugged in.

Have you ever wondered how much energy your appliances really are using?  One lucky person will be able to find out for himself/herself with the Kill A Watt EZ Electricity Monitor.  It's a small monitor that you plug your devices into, and it shows the cost of operating the item each day/month/year. This has a suggested retail price of $60, and seems very popular, judging by the reviews that I read on several shopping sites. This would be a great way to teach your kids about electricity usage and conserving resources!




This giveaway is being sponsored by the people at Geothermal Genius. They run a website full of information on geothermal energy and you can get your questions answered there. Wondering about geothermal cost? What about the geothermal tax credit? Visit their site to get your questions answered! 

Giveaway is open to US mailing addresses only, please.  

Mandatory entry (must be done for extra entries to count):
Just let me know why you'd like to win this electricity monitor.

2. "Like" me on Facebook
3. Follow me on Twitter and tweet this:  @gabreviews is giving away a Kill A Watt EZ electricity monitor! Visit http://bit.ly/dZDfmL to enter. #giveaway
You can tweet this once per day- just leave a separate comment with link each time that you tweet.
4. Enter any of my other currently ongoing giveaways- leave a separate comment for each one that you enter!
5. Put my button (code on the right side of this page) up on your blog and let me know where I can find it!

Giveaway will close at 9 PM Pacific time on January 11, 2011. I'll choose a winner with random.org and will email that person who will then have 48 hours to respond. Good luck!

Disclosure: I received no product and no compensation for this post, just the opportunity to give an electricity monitor to one of you.

My husband would love this, although I think he would drive me crazy using it and then telling me how much energy everything used.

We have an really old working fridge in the garage that is so handy to have esp during the holidays for backup storage but I am sure it is a real energy hog. It would be good to see the numbers to finally make a decision if it should stay or go.

I would like to know why my energy bill is so high. I think I know what things are the ones doing it, but this way I could be sure.

My husband and I have had many "discussions" as to why or utility bills seem to be increasing, no matter what we do different. I think it would be nice to have this as a referee in these "discussions" and see what is and what isn't costing so much.

It would be interesting to find out how much energy all of our appliances really are using!

I'd like to see just how much energy our appliances use when plugged in but not in use. It's a debate we've had for a while now.
