WFMW- We don't use paper towels!


One of my first thrifty moments happened when I decided to walk past the paper towel aisle in Walmart. I stopped buying paper towels one year ago. My main reason was to save money- it cost to buy them and it cost to throw them away. We use old wash clothes or hand towels instead.

I quit awhile ago also, just stopped buying them. A great and easy way to save some $.

I am trying.
I bought some micro fiber clothes but I still like to use them for wiping down real yucky things with disinfectant like the toilet and trash can. But I am trying!
