I would like to find out how much power my refrigerator is using over the
course of month.

Are there any inexpensive watt-hour meters on the market? Something I could
build with my AC ammeter?

Thanks for any  input

If you know the power it uses when on, you could wire an electric analog
clock on to the compressor and it will show how many houre it is running.

Is $0 cheap enough?

from many sources including Radio Shack I believe.
