Innovative Economies :: The Clothesline

You are probably well aware by now of my affinity for sun-drying laundry.  The clothesline was enjoying daily use until recent rains showed us a big problem with our home-made design.  Notice how those sticks in the ground hold up the line?  Turns out that days of rain turn that yard into mud, the sticks fall loose in their holes and my clean clothes fall onto the muddy earth.

Luckily I have a husband well versed in innovative economy.  He took cement blocks that were sitting without purpose near our shed and used them to create a new and improved clothesline.  Now if the sun is out, so are my clothes, without problem.

How have you used innovative economy in your home lately?
