Confessions of a Paper Towel Addict
I use too many paper towels! They are costly and wasteful. My new goal is to try and do without paper towels. I bought a bunch of bar towels in a pack of 24 for $9 at Sams. I haven't calculated the price of running the washing machine to clean them, but I am thinking it has to be cheaper than buying 6 rolls of paper towels each week. Ok I might not use 6 rolls a week, but I know I at least use 4. I know it is simply a habit to grab a paper towels to wipe down the counters than to grab a towel. I don't buy paper napkins but we do use paper towels for napkins, so I am also going to try and use all cloth napkins this week.
