Frugal February Tip #9

Tip #9
- After you wash your clothes, don't put them in the dryer, line dry them. Especially if you live in a place with an apartment size dry that only fits half a load and takes FOREVER to dry. This will help to reduce your electric bill, especially in the summer when you're trying to cool your place, and all the dryer does is heat it up. Again, it will help save the life of your clothes, which also saves you money. Buy a dry rack or two and hang your clothes. You can get really creative with ways to hang clothes around your place. If you hate having stiff jeans, or towels, just pop them in the dryer while they are slightly damp. You'll get the same results with only using the dryer for 5 minutes as you would an hour.
