I’ve been trying to
catch up keep up on my blog roll. I have about 40 I try to keep up with and have recently added a few more. Although I don’t have a chance to read them all or leave comments all the time I enjoy reading of others lifestyles and life lessons.
I’ve learned a LOT about, gardening, sustainable living, time & money savers. The way resources are used compared to the US is huge! Looking at what is considered necessities in other countries opposed to the US has really been eye opening
The 2 that have the most common thread are:
Water tanks for home and yard use. Rain water collected in huge tanks, on roofs & others placed under the eves catching the run off for garden use. For some its the only water. Others choose to do this simply to save the water bill & make good use of ready resources.
The majority of homes do not own clothes dryers. They line or rack dry. In the US the majority of subdivisions prohibit a clothes line! An electric clothes dryer accounts for approximately 25% of the US. electric bill.
I’m sure living expenses (electricity, groceries & gas or fuel) being much higher have a large input to these life choices.
But, I have to ask would you willingly give up your dryer to save the electric bill? Would you even consider it?
