Coffee addicts: Here’s a really simple way to reduce your energy consumption. This is how my husband managed to turn off my coffee pot, and live to tell about it! I’m a caffeine-addicted, coffee-guzzling kinda’ person, and my coffee pot is on from dawn ’til dusk. He’s a coffee snob and a gadget-loving geek. This time, it turned out to be a win-win situation! Don’t tell him I said so; he’ll think he can be right twice in a row!
