Subject: Budget101.com : Saving money air drying clothes
When our budget bill amount went to $249 a month DH finally gave in and let me economize. The first month the only thing I changed was I quit using the clothes dryer, washed all of our clothes in cold water and quit using the dishwasher and our bill dropped by $80. I am not kidding and those were the only changes. An electric dryer uses a 220 watt outlet like a stove and a hot water heater that is twice of a standard outlet 110. That is the main reason I bake so much in my toaster oven.
After the success with the laundry and dishwasher we started replacing lightbulbs now our budget bill is $132 a month mostly due to the hight cost of heat in the winter. Our actuall electricity usuage is about $80 in the summer and my dh would rather die than economise on his AC.
