I long to put solar panes on my roof. We have an incredible southern exposure roof line and would greatly reduce our expenses if I could knock out my electric bill or at least decrease it significantly. I am always looking for other ways to reduce my electric usage and sometimes they are just so simple it's ridiculous. I have become so used to my creature comforts...the dryer, the air conditioner, the dishwasher. It's all so easy...just a push of the button. Today I thought to myself...well, let's just try a few things and save some energy and money!
I shut off the air conditioning and opened my windows.
I baked six loaves of bread.
I put up a makeshift washline on the deck and hung out my laundry.
