Save a tree--use a hankie!Okay, it's a given that the easiest way to save money is not to spend it in the first place.
Of course, we have to buy SOME things, don't we? But where's the fun in spending money on one-time-use products like facial tissues? I'd much rather spend my greenbacks on TRAVEL or CLOTHES, for instance, wouldn't you??
So, yeah, I use hankies or even Hubby-sized handkerchiefs instead of buying tissues. They're softer even than most paper products, which is much appreciated when there's a whole lot of blowin' goin' on!
No, I don't always iron them, but thought you'd better be able to see my newest ones if ironed. This is one of four monogrammed hankies (may be cocktail napkins) that I bought at a yard sale for a song.
Incidentally, the cabinet door's open here in the mudroom to show where I keep my scissors. Maybe you always knew to keep a pair in the laundry room, but I probably got the idea from Martha Stewart. Scissors in the laundry room come in so handy for cutting stray threads off of clothing...or hankies.
Nothing risqué about HANKIE PANKY. Hankies are good for noses, good for budgets AND good for good for the environment. Win, $Win$, WIN!
Now what would YOU rather spend your money on than facial tissues?
