Apron Strings April kit . . . . this is the first of my cards created with the kit that I'd like to share with you today! I created EIGHT cards with the kit, and I still have a bunch of paper and embellishments left. Lots of cute stickers in this kit too! Definitely go check out Apron Strings, if you are looking for a card kit with bright fun colors!
Second of all . . .a few weeks ago, probably about two weeks ago - we ran out of paper towels on the paper towel dispenser. There were more upstairs, but I just hadn't gotten up there to get them. And hubby and I have been talking a lot about ways to simplify, cut back, and be a little more earth-friendly. So I thought I'd see how long we could make a roll of paper towels last. But guess what? I didn't replace the paper towels. And then I thought I'd see how long I could last without the paper towels at all.
And guess what?
It's really not that bad.
I got a package of white wash cloths, for about $6 at Ross.
I put them in a pretty little basket on the counter.
I do a load of laundry every day anyway, so I'm not adding any more laundry, and it has gone much better than I anticipated.
Granted there have been a FEW times that I wished I had a paper towel. But in the end, the towels or a kitchen sponge did the job just fine.
I thought that wiping the toddler face was going to be the biggest drag. Who wants a damp towel covered in oatmeal and yogurt, hanging around all afternoon on the side of the sink? But it really hasn't been bad.
So - anyone up for the challenge? See how long you can make that roll of paper towels last.
Or just ditch them altogether.
And tell me all about it, because I really want to know!!!
(And doesn't it figure, we had just bought a Costco sized package of paper towels before we decided to ditch them!? So now, I have a bathroom cabinet FULL of paper towel rolls!!!)
