4 Ways to Save Money in the Laundry Room

We are always looking for ways to save money and the laundry room is a great place to start.
Laundry…. the chore that never ends!
I am so thankful that I live in an era where appliances exist to perform most of the dirty work for me! Laundry is pretty basic: sort, wash, dry, place in basket, (forget basket in the laundry room for five days), fold, repeat. Since it is so basic (and the appliances do most of the work) it is easy to get in a rut and continue doing laundry the same way you have for years and years without changing any part of your routine. Routines are great, but it’s even better if you can save money by making a few changes. Here are some easy ways to help you out!
Hang it UP
While I am so thankful to have modern day appliances that wash and dry my clothes for me, running them isn’t exactly free. The more laundry we do, the higher our electric bill. An easy way to save money is by not using the dryer whenever possible. An outdoor clothes line works great if you have a yard and the weather is nice. Even if you don’t have a yard or the weather is not ideal, there are a variety of indoor clotheslines you can use. Most of these can be folded up and put away when not in use, so you can still save money by not using your dryer.

- Many machines have a setting for using cold water only.
- Hang-up your laundry and let it air dry.
