eco-friendly, energy saving tip, wool dryer balls -

Energy is precious. Not only that we have to pay for using it, but also is takes a lot of resources to be produced, and it also generates waste.  One of my goals for this year is to cut down waste. I started with babysteps, by reducing energy consumption. I’ve made a quick inventory of all electrical appliances, and it wasn’t very hard to find out the leader in energy usage: the dryer.   I’ve started to look into ecological option, and I’ve came across wool dryer balls.

 Greetings everyone, Father’s day. Another opportunity to celebrate our loved ones. This year, Father’s day has another meaning for me. My Dad passed away a few weeks ago, and this time I will just remember all the good thinks he used to teach us.
