Save money in the laundry
The cost of caring for your clothing may not jump out at you the same way your food, housing and auto bills do, but that doesn't mean you can't save money on laundry expenses.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the average American family does nearly 400 loads of laundry each year. Along the way, they spend hundreds of dollars on electricity, water, detergent, fabric softener and other costs associated with cleaning their garments.
Fortunately, a few small changes can dramatically reduce your annual outlay on laundry costs while helping to reduce its financial impact on your household.
