Hang my clothes on a clothesline: I’m sure many of you are already doing this, but with my mom here hanging her clothes outside, I thought I’d bite the bullet and commit to using the dryer less and air dry my clothes more. Yes, that will mean more time doing something I hate, but with not having to drive to a pool, guess I’ll have more time!

I’m not proficient in this yet, but having mom here, showing me the ropes sure helps!

    I don’t have an outside clothesline, but I’ve been hanging my clothes up in the laundry room for years now – mainly because they look nicer and seem to last longer. Now the money savings is an added bonus!

    We used to have a clothesline when I was growing up, and my grandmother even hung the sheets and towels out to dry. They smelled so fresh!

    Gas is very close to $4.00 here. We’re just trying to combine trips and drive less overall.

  2. Gina – what a great idea for the summer savings ideas. I can’t wait to read everyone’s ideas. When we moved into our house, one of the first things my husband did was to take down the “eyesore” of a clothes line in our back yard, but we also just bought a new HE washer and dryer, so we’ll just have to keep doing the clothes in the house. 🙂
