I love when going natural and saving money go hand and hand. It's happening so much more than I had expected! YAY!!!
I am a neat-freak, and I HATE clutter on the counter. But this simple basket from Target doesn't annoy me because its pretty, and it takes the place of the paper towels that were already there. I keep it next to the kitchen sink and just grab one when I would have normally grabbed a paper towel. I love it!
When I first decided to use washcloths in place of paper towels, I thought I'd keep the paper towels on the counter just in case. When we were going through a roll in 2-3 days (I have a toddler, remember!), now it's been 2 weeks since I put the washcloths out and we are still on the same roll we were on when we started. It's so exciting, especially since the cost of the washcloths from Costco (pack of 24!!!) was the same price as a 12 pack of paper towel rolls.
I can't wait to see how much I've saved over a years time!
I love to hear about how you have made natural and economical discoveries, so please share in the comments!
