We’ve taken today’s hack from our latest collaboration with Yahoo and Experian. We have created some money saving life hacks for their Inspiring Money Stories campaign. This one is all about vampire charges.
What is a vampire charge? Well, even when they’re not in use, all electrical appliances use a small supply of energy just by being plugged in and switched to ‘on’. To avoid so-called vampire charges, be sure to switch off all your appliances – think toaster, TV, printer etc − at the plug to stop the constant trickle of energy racking up your utility bills.
We do life hacks every Monday – have you got a good one?
