My Top Ten List Item #6
Hang a clothes line. It doesn’t have to encompass your whole yard, unless you have a really small yard. Just tie a rope from your deck to a tree. Make it just long enough for one load of wash. Nothing fancy, just a thin rope and some clothespins.
Then, unplug your dryer. Force yourself to carry those wet clothes outside. I know this sounds radical, but sometimes that’s what it takes to get us to make a change. Studies show that it takes 30 times of doing something to make it a habit. So make a plan to do it for a month and stick with it.
That means if it rains, you wait a day to hang your clothes. You will begin checking the weather report in the morning and planning when to run your laundry and hang your clothes. I promise you that if you stick with it for a month, you will be addicted. The smell of clothes hung outside to dry is better than any perfumy odor from a dryer sheet and healthier for you I might add.
You won’t know what you are missing until you try! I would love to see pictures of your clothesline! Post them on my Facebook page at Dan Guinn Homes or send it to me at e.guinn@DanGuinnHomes.com
