Iron or Dryer?

I often will delay ironing until I have a huge pile of it, so is if I have enough for a full dryer load, which is cheaper: ironing for over an hour or putting it in the dryer for 20 min? I have a dryer that's only a few years old, so it's pretty energy efficient.

Dress shirts go to the cleaners - they do a better job than I do and it's worth it to me. Most things go in the dryer only and I try to pull them out, fold or hang right away and they look fine. I admit to buying more knits and similar fabrics lately to avoid having to iron. Plus, frankly, they just look nicer throughout the day. I bought two more pairs of the identical pants that have just a little spandex in them - they look great all day, are comfortable, and I just throw on a long sweater jacket to make it into an outfit for business wear.

I have a few things that just must be ironed, and I do those. I iron maybe once a month, if that. Not like in the old days, and certainly not like mother did!
