- Cutting Back on washing clothing from 7 loads to 3 a week.
For the other 2 loads it's been a simple cut back on washing towels and clothes left on the floor/bed. We hang them up to air after our showers (sometimes in the sun). And we make a bigger effort to not put something on for a minute and throwing it down in a rush as this usually just ends up in the laundry pile.

- Saturday: Coloured clothing & 2 towels.
- Saturday: Black clothing and 1 black towel.
- Sunday: White clothing, light coloured business shirts and bed sheets.
I may throw in a 4th load which consists of one or more of these items: soft toys, dolls, shower curtain, canvas shoes, floor mats or picnic blankets. But as I do laundry consciously now, anything of 4 loads no longer applies in our house. I'm saving my sanity, precious time, money and planet by eliminating the waste that I was contributing to. However when the humid and hot wet season commences again my loads may go back up from 3 to 5.
Are your bills increasing too? Are you making any conscious decisions in your life to cut back on costs and damage to the environment?
