My tip this week is pretty easy ..........use rags instead of paper towels. I rarely buy paper towels anymore and when I do the packages of 8 rolls last us along time. I do like to keep some on hand because we have a dog and cleaning up dog messes with a rag is eeewww. But for everything else I/we use rags. I cut up old tshirts and towels and we use those. I have some stack able baskets in my pantry and in one of those baskets is where the majority of the rags are housed. But I also have two small baskets that I believe I got at the Dollar General Store under my kitchen sink. One is for clean rags to live and the other is where the dirty ones go.
If the rags are wet I have a slide out towel bar thingy that they hang on until dry and then I put them in the basket with the other dirty rags and towels.
I also keep a small laundry basket in my laundry room and when my kitchen basket gets full we dump it in that basket. When the laundry room basket is full, which happens about once a month, I throw them all in the washer together and give them all a good wash. Pretty simple really. I also do not keep the paper towels that I do buy out in plain site. I found that if my family seems them they use them. But like most things out of sight out of mind. Really is a simple thing to do to save some money. Just takes some time to get out of the habit.
