Sidenote: Plugs, Plugs Everywhere!

dsc_0006This is a post about a simple and small green feature of the house, but I believe it’s an important one.  I hear a lot these days about how plugged in items like cell phones drain electricity even when they’re fully charged.  Even having the cord and transformer plugged in drains electricity.   Link here.

We specifically designed a shelf in the master bedroom that has multiple switched electrical outlets.  This allows us the convenience of having a place to go for all of our small electrial ‘stuff’ and not having to plug and unplug, or even to search for the chargers.  The items this “charging center” will accommodate are:

  • iPhones
  • home cordless phones
  • iPods
  • razors
  • toothbrushes
  • Blackberries
  • other necessities yet to be created by Apple
