P.S. ~ Here’s a little video on this very subject that I saw just today…How to Break the Paper Towel Habit On “Thrifty Thursday” I thought I would address the subject of paper towel waste. I decided that this was another area where I could save a few more pennies. Paper towels wipe up small messes and are just tossed into the trash…hence you can just imagine hearing the little “cha-ching” going on at the paper towel manufacturers. A few weeks ago, I decided to invest in a couple bundles of white wash cloths that were on sale. I also bought a tall, white, round plastic trash container (the kind with the swinging lid on top) to toss in my cloths and other towels when they were dirty. To be honest, I still keep paper towels on hand to grease a pan or to use when I want to serve some cookies but don’t want to mess with little dishes. But overall, I feel better about being less wasteful. I have found that keeping these white cloths nearby are really handy and just as easy to use as grabbing a paper towel. When my napkins for the table are gone, I plan to put some of these in my little square basket that I keep on the table. My boys can toss them into my container when the poor little white cloths are done being abused from wiping dirty hands and faces.
