We don’t use our dryer. It’s one of those weird things I picked up from my parents, and Tom goes along with it because not using the dryer saves money.
In addition to saving money, using a clothes line is one of those simple things you can do to live a greener lifestyle. Hanging our clothes outside keeps us from using the dryer, which saves electricity, and it’s easier on your clothes. Plus, hanging up clothes is better exercise than just pitching them in the dryer.
You can hang clothes outside all year long – clothes will dry just as well in the winter as they do in the summer.
I also love it because getting clothes on the line is another reason for me to spend the morning outside with David.
Whenever I go out to the clothes line, David sits in his very own clothes basket and plays with clothes pins.
Have YOU ever tried to stand up from a cross-legged position?
It’s not easy.
