I thought it might be fun to share things we've done recently that go completely against our Budget Board minded decision making because of absent mindedness, etc.. Ways we wasted money, electricity, water, gas, etc. Maybe this will reinforce...YET AGAIN, in our minds to conserve/save. Here's what I did the other day: I did a load of laundry the other night. I do a short 6 minute wash to conserve water and electricity. I put the clothes in the dryer and off I went. The next morning, while I was getting ready, I remembered my clothes were still in the dryer, so I turned it on to get the wrinkles out...then I went off on my merry way and forgot again. Got home later that day and remembered the clothes were in the dryer. I turned the dryer on to get the wrinkles out...and FORGOT AGAIN!!! I remember the next morning and, yet again, de-wrinkled the load AGAIN. This time I remembered and finally got the clothes out of the dryer. So, in essence, I ran the dryer four times for one load of clothes. What a waste of electricity. Dumb, dumb, dumb.
