Use a clothes line instead of your dryer

Hanging your clothes to dry on the clothes line has many benefits - for starters, it saves energy, money, and time.

It's especially good in the summer to keep your  house from being heated up by the dryer.


I have a clothesline on my Hill Country property. I figure it's saved me about $200 in electricity this year. I harvested cedar from my land for the posts, so it cost almost nothing to build. It feels good to save money and help the environment. I like to tell people my clothes dryer is powered by the wind and the sun. If they don't know what I'm talking about, they ask where they can get one.....
