Electricity in West Hawaii is INSANE. We pay about 40 per KWH which means I am so NOT breaking even with CDing (but for the fact that I am using most of the same diapers for #4 that I used for #1). I have no idea the cost of paper diapers but we are spending about $72/month just to wash diapers and I hang dry EVERYTHING. If I was drying those loads I'd be looking at adding an additional $36/month.

***I knew our energy was high but after looking at this I am wondering if I could get away with washing in cold (or even warm). Wonder if it's worth messing with my wash routine. Hmmmmmmmm...
