Thanks to Michele for this Frugal Baby Tip!

I am presently lucky to be living in a house with a line outside, you know the square kind that looks like a tree or umbrella? Even though I had to fix it because NO one else had figured out how to make it square and all the lines were droopy (they were actually going to scrap it and buy another)

Anyway, it is fine now and I'm grateful but I was living in a townhouse in Edmonton Alberta last year and I had my husband buy a retractable clothesline at Canadian Tire (hardware store) for about $20 CAN and he installed it in our basement and it worked great.

Just don't leave it out when the neighbor kids are over because they try to swing from it *boggle* I don't know WHY, my son knew to leave it alone!

It has 4 lines with a total of 50" and that was enough to dry 2-3 dozen diapers and assorted paraphernalia. I have it installed in my basement now and I used it through the winter here because it's just too darn cold outside here in February to hang outside IMHO, not that the diapers wouldn't dry, I just am NOT a winter person

You can't dry anything really heavy on it but it is perfect for diapers and most handwashables. I think it would be perfect to hang in a bedroom, out of sight and the room would be long enough and when not in use it is barely noticeable against the wall because it is white with a light gray knob.
