I found that I saved a good amount of money by waiting 2 weeks to do laundry -- and also by ironing only once every 2 weeks. Savings have been about $50.00 a month on our electric bill!

Just be sure not to overload your washer (and dryer). If you make the washer too full it will not only ruin your washer, but wear out your clothes sooner..

Try picking up and hanging up clothes rather than feed them to the hamper.
Back when washing and ironing were REAL work, no one had the nerve to put clean clothes in the hamper.

50 dollars a month???? I guess I don't see how that would save that much.
WE HANG ALL OUR SHIRTS ON HANGERS WET, AND ALLOW TO AIR DRY. I JUST HANG THEM IN THE BATHROOM ON THE SHOWER CURTAIN ROD BEFORE I GO TO BED AND THEY ARE USUALLY DRY BY THE NEXT MORNING
