Are These Energy Vampires Sucking You Dry? [INFOGRAPHIC]

CASH 1 is known for our easy personal loans, but we do enjoy sharing money saving tips. We're in the Halloween spirit and wanted to talk to you about vampires - the electronic kind. These vamps are lurking in your house and draining your wallet by wasting electricity when they're plugged in and not being used.

Flat Screen TVs
