The Kill a Watt Elctric Power Usage Monitor is a cheap (~$20), easy to use product that monitors the electricity use of whatever is plugged into it.

The PowerCost Monitor monitors power use for your whole house, and tells you in real time how much it is costing you.

You should be able to pay for either of these with the amount you save after you realize how much power you are wasting!

      I have bought one of these kilawatt meters and it has been sitting on my desk for months. I will commit to dusting it off and going around the house and really seeing what my energy use really is! - I would like to follow this up with a Commitment / Action to reduce ghost loads by installing power timers that you can set to shut off the power based upon a time of day much like a digital thermostat.

      Have several; energyteachers.org sells WattsUp datalogging USB-capable meters for far under list. I wrote an article there about how I combined the power data with light, temperature, and humidity data in my refrigerator.

      I did this too. I was amazed at how much energy my house was wasting away. The $2000 I spent on an electrician to overhaul the old electrical system was totally worth it.
