A few weeks ago as I was picking up a few things from the grocery store, I caught myself cringing as I reached for the paper towels yet AGAIN! Buying them was something I got into the habit of doing without really thinking of it, but an 8 pack of Bounty can really add up time after time!
That’s when I had my lightbulb moment…I was going to stop buying paper towels altogether! It was such a freeing decision and it was one of those moments when I wondered why I hadn’t done it way sooner!
So, since a few weeks ago, I’ve been slowly accumulating my dishrag collection. I still catch myself reaching for the (empty) paper towel holder every so often, but other than that, the adjustment to a paperless kitchen has been pretty seamless!
So far, I’ve organized my supply of cloth into these three categories:
- cleaning cloths- for counters and cleaning up messes
- drying towels- for hands and dishes
- cloth napkins- for meals
I hope this helps those of you who are thinking of going paperless!
For those of you that already have a paperless kitchen, do you have any helpful tips to make the transition?
Or do you have a favorite brand/type of cloth?!
