Day 7: Take It Outside

Day 7: Line Dry Clothes

Today is Sunday, aka 'Laundry Day' in most households.  I know it is in mine.  So today when I go to take my wet clothes from the washer and put them in the dryer, instead I'm going to put them in a basket, hang them on my collapsable clothes dryer and bring them outside to dry.  It's going to take about 3% more effort, a statistic I just made up, to do this but the results are well worth it. 

In addition to saving an estimated $25 a month on your electric bill ($25 x 12 months= $300 saved!) you're also saving energy which keeps dangerous carbon dioxide from entering our atmosphere.
