Sun-dry your washing
Tumble dryers may be convenient, but they use a lot of electricity, and often shrink and damage your clothes. Wherever possible, hang your clothes on the washing line to dry in the sun. We are lucky in South Africa in that we often have sunny days, even in the middle of winter. Make a point of saving up your washing until the sun comes out, and then make the most of the free energy!
