another bit of space
when we moved into our house over 3 1/2 years ago a friend gave us a dryer. i was quite excited about it but zac and our other housemate were both against driers. they managed to convert me to their ways (driers waste a lot of energy, shrink clothes-- i never had much issue with that though, and we have a gigantic hills hoist that takes up a good part of our yard so it might as well be put to use) and the drier has gone unused in the 3 1/2+ years its lived here. we finally decided to get rid of it and replace it with something useful- shelving. we weren't sure how well it works (we've turned it on a couple times, it heats up but doesn't seem to actually start drying things) so i put it up on freecycle a couple nites ago. within 20 minutes someone wanted it!! he just came and got it now!!! now i can move the half assembled ikea shelves from the loungeroom (where they've been sitting for a couple weeks or so) and finish putting the indivdual shelves in. the laundry room is gonna be so much easier to walk thru now (and there won't be a pile of dog towels and junk on the floor cuz there was no where else to put it)!
