The first thing that you need to do, is to draw up a chart for each appliance in the kitchen. This list and chart should display just how much electricity each unit consumes and for how long it consumes that amount of electricity for.
Next, you need to list down just what items need to stay running and for how long they need to be running. This will help you determine if you can sacrifice some of the appliances and if you can, then for how long you can do that.
This is the best way to go about things, so don’t waste any time doing anything else.
Once you have your list down, go ahead and make markings and charts, which you can display in your kitchen. List down the hours during which certain items can be used, this will help everyone learn the routine of the usage of the appliances.
At the same time, ensure that everyone turns off the main sockets for appliances such as the microwave, the oven, the dishwasher and so on and so forth. Just keep your fridge plugged in, because apart from that, not many other devices need to stay plugged in for as long as the others. This is the best approach to use, and it will help you save the maximum amount of electricity, making life a lot easier for you.
