Tuesday’s Tip Jar – Paper Towels

October 28, 2008 at 4:46 pm 2 comments

A few years ago I was given a paper towel holder, so I would have something to keep my paper towels in on my counter. I noticed that we used considerably more paper towels by keeping them so easily accessible.

I took the paper towel roll off the holder and put the paper towels in my pantry. It’s much easier to grab a washcloth on the counter than look for the paper towels in the pantry. By keeping them “hidden”, we do not use as many.

I am going to also bring some rags from my bathroom closet down to the kitchen, so if I am tempted to use paper towels, I know I have a more “green” alternative in the same room. Most of the time, it just doesn’t seem worth it to run to the other end of the house just to use a rag – even I know I should…

    This is a good tip. We started using more rags a while ago and it is amazing the savings to our family, not to mention the trees.

    Happy Tuesday!

    Great idea, it’s so important to cut our waste. Is hould hide mine too. I’m all the time hollering at my family to use a handtowel/washcloth/rag instead of papertowels.
