*** EDIT *** I’m an idiot, these aren’t green at all (unless you dig toxic breast milk).  Live and learn.

During a delightful visit to DwellSmart, I purchased my first box of dryer balls. This purchase makes sense both economically and environmentally. I won’t have to purchase another box for two years. The dryer balls cost $20.00. A box of Mrs. Meyer’s Brand dryer sheets cost $8.00. Our dryer, unfortunately, is put through the cycle at least once a day. By day eighty, I will need another box of fabric sheets.

Of course, I am very glad not be throwing away one more piece of cloth a day. Please put both balls into dryer – it happened to be halfway through first cycle when I noticed!

Now a question for our readers: Has anyone found an inexpensive bamboo drying rack for clothing? Perhaps I could give our dryer an occasional break.

    Great article, Carol. I have my own blog now about savvy dating and it�s been quite an experience learning how to make it interesting and monetize it.
    I used to write articles for magazines but unfortunately, those gigs got harder to find as many publications went out of business.
    The toughest part for me is selling myself and persuading clients to pay better rates. I recommend being active on LinkedIn for all new writers because I got my best client there. I was blessed to find a former Wall Street Journal reporter who was more than willing to pay top dollar.
