A few suggestions:

Dry your clothes inside on racks.

Do a bunch of canning, or any cooking that involves boiling things on the stove for a long time.

Don't use the fan when you have a shower.

Get some house plants.

Turn off the dry cycle on your dishwasher and open it up to dry overnight.

Related to the cooking suggestion, use a rice cooker inside for rice and beans and lentils. You can move it anywhere you need moisture.

late to the party here but we have an aprilaire 600 system installed on the HVAC, works great
we had an aprilaire steam unit at the last house but that one has much more expensive filters, also worked great
