Downsizing - Size and Power

There are many things which need downsizing in this quest to live in a small space for 9 months. One of them is how I brew my morning coffee. When I lived in Tucson, I would start each day off at Starbucks, before my daily commute.
When I moved to Southport, I bought a Keurig, 1500 Watts of power. Too much power and too big for my small space. I only have 1900 watts available with my generator.
I think I finally have the perfect coffee maker, at 450 watts. The Cuisinart, one cup coffee maker, only uses a 6 inch square amount of space.
Other things which take an excessive amount of power for my little boat include hair dryers and curling irons. Fortunately, I have plans! I have been told that size matters, and for this trip it does!
