It sounds like you have to many things plugged into that line for the size of breaker you have in the box. You might see if you can put a little bit larger one in there. If not unplug a couple of the other things on the curcuit, even the are turned on they still draw power. There is a item that you can get that you plug in between the item and the power outlet to test how much power it is drawing when it is not being used. Then you can see which one is drawing to most and then unplug it when not using it. I personally unpulg all my tools at the end of the day, and flip the breaker for my 220 also.
