Thumb Down


I would far rather get out an do stuff like kayaking, climbing, hiking, snowboarding, mountain biking etc. Shopping is just a crap thing that eats up my play time.

Therefore I'll do my internet shopping, enjoying lower prices, during my lunch break and go and enjoy myself doing real stuff when I have time off work.

I've looked at this type of devices in the past and I've always wondered but never bothered to work out, how long would it take you to save the £30 in wasted electricity?
