I’ve mentioned before that we don’t have a dryer. This is for several reasons. We live in a small house where we simply don’t have the room for one. We try to make green choices when possible, and dryers are not very ecological. Not having a dryer is also a frugal choice; they consume a lot of elecricity. In fact, I feel a little smug about not having a dryer.
But oh! How I want one!
Being frugal or environmental can be a choice, or it can be a necessity. Some of the frugal choices I make, like tracking my finances daily or buying second-hand clothes, I wouldn’t give up if my circumstances changed. But not the drying rack! I know that, if we suddenly had the space, I would gallop like a madwoman to the nearest appliance shop and buy a dryer quicker than you could possibly imagine. And my frugal, environmentally conscious ways would fly out the window like laundry in the wind.
What about you? Are there any frugal choices would you not make if you could?
