If you have a gas dryer, it must be vented outside to avoid carbon monoxide. If you have an electric dryer, you might want to vent it outside because of all the humidity that gets blown into the house. During the winter, that might be welcome, but not the rest of the year. The one time I tried that with an electric dryer, it blew in a lot of lint as well, so I stopped.
My mother and grandmother would hang laundry out all year long, but that was in Germany back in the 40s and early 50s. We did not have a washer or dryer. Don’t even know if they were available in Germany at that time. They washed the laundry by hand and used a washboard. Now, in this country, I have a washer and dryer but still hang laundry out during Spring, Summer and Fall. Wintertime, I have a clothesline down in the basement and will use that for some items, though I will dry many things in the dryer. No, I do not use a washboard, though I did when my son was on the football team. His uniform and socks sometimes needed scrubbing.
I always find a coupon to use which helps with the cost. Though I have tried other paper towels, I always go back to the Viva and will use those other ones for cleaning, etc., just not for my nose.
You are definitely not alone. You are among the masses. I don’t know anyone who doesn’t mute the TV during commercials.
I use Viva Paper Towels, the plain white ones. They are very good and plenty soft enough for me. I too have left one in a pocket a few times and they come through the wash an are usable again when dry.
In my city, a lot of people still use bags for grass and other yardwaste, but they have to be city-approved bio-degradable bags. Those are expensive, so I just use regular trash bags for my flowerbed/garden waste and then haul whatever to the town yardwaste dump. While there, I can pick up free compost. As for all my leaves, I do use my mower to mulch them if there aren’t too many. The rest get vacuumed up and mulched as well. Then I dump the mulched up leaves in my garden and till them into the soil to augment it. Win-win all the way around.
I prefer a nice beer with my homemade pizza. White Zinfandel is too sweet to go with pizza IMO, but I might drink it after some other dinner.
I don’t carry a hankie, but I use a soft paper towel instead. I don’t sneeze a lot, but my nose runs all year long (allergies) despite taking allergy meds. I do blow my nose thoroughly many times during the day. I hate having anything in there. Even so, “they” tell us to do our sneezing into our elbow. Don’t think I want what comes out of my nose and/or mouth during a sneeze to land on my arm or sleeve. The paper towel serves me well.
I always made my kids eat whatever I cooked at least once. If they still did not like it, I would not make them eat it again. There was never anything that they turned down for future meals. For some, they even raided the refrigerator for the leftovers later in the day or early the next day. Many kids will look at something and decide it is awful without tasting. My method worked for me.
I have had “breakfast” for lunch as well as for dinner several times in my life. I have also had “dinner” for breakfast or lunch. It all depends on what I am in the mood for and what is available in my refrigerator and pantry. I don’t see anything wrong with any of that.
