Are you spending money just to throw it in the trash?

Monday, May 18, 2009


Trade in those rolls of paper towels and those packages of paper napkins for washable, re-useable cloth, and put the savings to work on your homestead. For the cost of a roll of paper towels or a package of paper napkins, you can buy good quality, long-lasting cloth towels and napkins that will last for years – saving you hundreds of dollars each year.

To save even more money replace all paper goods (plates, cups, eating utensils, table clothes, etc.) with washable and re-useable ones and watch your savings grow even more.

    We’ve started doing this. I got tired of seeing money being tossed into the trash.

    Do you have any tips as what to do with all of the nasty rags while waiting for a full load to wash? I hate the smell and feeling of wet rags so I buy paper towels,but hate wasting money . Thank you

    I use dish towels exclusively instead of paper towels, so I have a few dozen in my kitchen drawer. As they get grungy I lay them out on the washing machine to dry then wash them once a week with white bath towels and floor mats.

    Drying them out seems to help keep down the smell.
