Exciting clothes-drying news

My sis bought a clothesline! One of those retractable reel-type ones: You screw the reel to a wall, and can pull it out across the way to a post or whatever.

This is good news for me, because it means we'll run the dryer less, and can save electricity, reduce our carbon footprint, and simplify some.

I'm definitely de-prioritizing having a clothes dryer in whatever house I buy. Might be worth it for quickie jobs, but otherwise, when you think about it, they're not really necessary.
Plus, as it is, you can save about a hundred bucks a year by not using one.

I'll let you know how it goes.
