Thrifty Thursday - Cloth Napkins
This is my first time participating in Thrifty Thursday over at Comical Coupon Sense. I don't have a picture (camera issues). Sorry.
This past weekend, we hit 3 garage sales in our neighborhood and found several things that we needed. First, we found boys jeans that fit my boys for .50 each. My boys wear out jeans faster than I could ever have imagined. I will not pay full price for them, as they usually end up ripped at the knees within a few wearings.
What I am most excited about though was the cloth napkins I found. One garage sale had 30 cloth napkins she sold them to me for $3.00! We already had 6 and I had been wanting to buy more, but not for $1.50 - 2.00 a piece. Now we have enough for 3 meals a day for 3 days without running out. I love that we will now be throwing out less paper (I really hated using paper napkins). I also think that using cloth napkins is making our meal time seem more special - its reminiscent of eating in a fine restaurant. After all, those are usually the only place most people use a cloth napkin.
