    You didn't include the entire URL...

    We have power strips on things like TVs and computer. When we're done watching TV, we turn it off at the power switch. After we turn off the computer, we flip the switch off at the power strip.

    We use non-electric clocks (you can still get wind-up clocks at Wal-Mart). We use old-fashioned phones that don't require electricity. Everyone with a landline should have at least one of these so they can still make and receive calls if the power is out. You can get models that will display caller I.D., but it's powered with batteries, not electricity.

    We use a solar charger for rechargeable batteries and recharging our cell phones.

    Every little bit helps...
