Conveniently, it's a holiday tonight (birthday of the trees!), so built-in media fast, replaced by good company and fruit.

Is a list item like "make the front porch less 'blah'" ok? I really have no idea what to do with it, other than clean out a bit of clutter. I'm not a regular reader of AT, but do we get more specific help along the way, or should I be making a smaller, more concrete goal?

Any data on relative energy consumption of these drawers vs. a traditional (Energy Star) fridge, both per cubic foot, and total? My guess is that they use more energy per ft^3, but if you stick to just these drawer units, you could reduce your consumption -- especially because you'd release less cooling since you're opening a smaller compartment. But I'd also guess that most people (in the US) would have these in addition to a standard-sized fridge, so it'd be a significant gain in consumption. Any data to back me up? And can this metric be included in regular reviews of appliances?
