Take Electronics Off Stand-By

Just because you've turned it off doesn't mean it's shut down. Home appliances like microwaves and other electronics will still draw power to keep certain functions going (clocks, timers, stand-by mode, etc.) To cut down on energy waste, unplug them or connect them to a power strip that can be turned on and off.
