Re: Hanging clothes to dry to save money

We find that drying diapers really saves the money, especially in the early years when you are doing a load every couple of days.

Re: Hanging clothes to dry to save money

I wish that we could have a clothes line! Our stupid homeowner's association won't let us and we don't have a basement so my options are pretty limited

Re: Hanging clothes to dry to save money

bummer..I used to live where there was a home owner's association. They are a bit too strict if you ask me.

And I may not be saving too much, but at this point where we are every penny literally counts. I'm going next week to apply to everywhere in town (lol) and even try to get a job at a grocery store on my current days off to help out a little.

This is off topic but would this quote happen to be from my very favorite childrens book, Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good Very Bad Day?

Re: Hanging clothes to dry to save money

I started using a clothes line outside during the summer last year. I got mine free from a friend who couldn't use it b/c the pine trees dripped sap onto all of her clothes while they were hanging outside. I used to have to hang up everything inside b/c our drier didn't work. But we have really high humidity in our house (yes its in Wisconsin and we are still running a dehumidifier in the house) so, if we would hang stuff out to dry again around the house we would end up with more mold around the house. For us we use a gas drier and as soon as I can get back out to the clothes line I will be using it.

Heather - I actually hate the smell of line dried clothing, but can't justify the cost of running the drier.

Re: Hanging clothes to dry to save money

in the summer I hang all our laundry outside (i miss summer!) this winter my dryer hasn't been working well, so I dried as much as i could on a drying rack in my living room, things dried there quickly since it's sunny & warm.

$240 a year isnt worth your time? Not trying to be snarky - but its worth my time!

yep, hang them on hangers and put them on the shower curtain rods. Or hang them on door frames (that's what my mom always did).
