When Irv and I went grocery shopping last Sunday, we got into a discussion about....of all things....paper towels!
Irv is a BIG fan of paper towels. He uses them like we own stock in the darn things. I understand that they are nice for certain things, but we DO NOT need to use TWO rolls of paper towels each and every week. That's EIGHT rolls a month. Not only is that a waste of resources, it clutters the landfill and it's a waste of MONEY....and you all know I am all about saving money right now!
Well, on Sunday, Irv won and we ended up with TWO BIG FAT ROLLS OF BIG MOPPER PAPER TOWELS IN OUR CART!
When we were putting the groceries away, I decided to be kind of "cute" (as in funny) and make a point at the same time....so I hid one of the rolls of paper towels. I was determined to get through the week using ONE roll of paper towels and my goal is to eventually use NO rolls and replace them with inexpensive bar towels that can be washed and reused.
Today is Saturday and we are still on the first roll! He doesn't even know the second roll isn't in the cabinet! I guess we won't have to buy any this week! Chee Hoo!
Do you use paper towels? How many rolls do you go through a week....and be honest now.
