Hence my electric bill

December 21st, 2015 at 06:14 pm

I force myself to be frugal just to do the things we consider important in our lives. We are blessed with a good income but we are also in a high cost of living state. Nonetheless, frugality and austerity helps us live a decent life. There is a frugal habit I barely stray from and that it using the clothes dryer the least amount possible. I read somewhere that the dryer is one of the most expensive household appliance to run.I use my drying racks 95% of the time. There are times when weather makes it impossible for me to hand clothes in the racks. Having said all that, I was excited to see that my electric bill was less than $44 this month. In a bad month, the bill is about $60.

Here is a pic of the two loads that I dried on the clothes racks. I have several and I hang them in the spare room and by the next morning they are ready for folding.

    Impressive! I hang some things that I don't want the dryer to ruin. I may need to find a place to try this for a month and at least see what the results would be. Do you use your dryer at all?

    I hardly do. I use it once in a while for very bulky things or when humidity doesn't cooperate.

    I like to hang dry on my 3 clothes racks but i hate the stiff crinkled look too. Smile I have one of those meters that lets you see how many kilowatts of energy any home appliance uses, and yes, anything that produces heat, cooling or suction uses the most energy, eg space heaters, ACs, vacuum cleaners and dryers.
