I did the math and our family spends roughly $120 a year on paper towels. Well, I should say we spent that much per year until now.
The solution is so simple. Why not use something that we don’t have to keep buying over and over again? I had about 50 cloth baby wipes left from our cloth diapering days and had an “ah-ha!” moment. We can easily use these instead. It’s really simple too. They are stored in an inexpensive wire bin in an easily accessible spot in our kitchen. When they are used/dirty we throw them in a pail under the kitchen sink. Then, about once a week I throw them in the wash and then we re-use them.
A penny saved is a penny earned!
Dear Jesus, thank you for giving me this idea. It is working really well for our family and I am excited that we can steward the money you give us even better now. Amen.
