Homenavarrow Saving money on groceries

Should you switch to cloth napkins?

If you have messy kids, you robably know just how many paper towels and paper napkins you go through just at a single mealtime. But you can save significant money - not to mention help save the trees - by using cloth napkins. And your kids will only use one absorbent napking during meal times rather than three or four paper napkins that kids often use.

You can often find cloth napkins at dollar stores, so you can start off using cloth napkins for a low price, and eventually add more to your collection. Or you can buy fabric, especially fabric roll ends for very inexpensively and then hem the edges to prevent fraying. It is best to use darker colored fabrics so that those ketchup or spaghetti stains won't show as easily, because it can be extremely difficult to keep white napkins clean!

As your family uses napkins, just toss them in with the laundry whenever you do a load.
