Welcome to Day 4? How have you been doing so far? For today’s challenge, take a few extra minutes to hang up some laundry instead of tossing it in to the dryer. This does two things as far as saving money. First, hanging laundry or using a rack saves you the money you might have spent on running the dryer (heat-generating appliances are notorious energy hogs). Second, it reduces the wear and tear on your laundry items, extending their life, so you don’t have to replace them as often!
Don’t worry if it isn’t warm enough where you are to hang laundry outside. I like to hang laundry up in my basement during the winter, because the clothes dry fast and they contribute some much-needed humidity to the dry winter indoor air. If you want to hang laundry on a regular basis, invest in a good quality drying rack that can be folded out-of-the-way when not in use.
