Paper! and lots of it ....


Hubby went to the store ...

and all he bought was paper!


and lots of it!!

Don't you hate it when you run out of paper? But isn't it a shame that we spend so much on stuff that you just throw away? 

But boy was I ever glad to to get that Charmin!! You can see where a roll was removed -- we were down to using the yucky backup stuff!! And kleenex! My, oh my, that's like gold around here! Again, dove right in! We were out of it in all our strategic locations!

And, even though I crochet dishcloths to use in the kitchen, I still use paper towels for messier cleanups .... and I was down to the last one on the roll!  Oh no!

All I can say is I'm thankful I don't use paper napkins anymore, or there would surely be another huge package of paper on that table!

And, just because there's a bunch of red in that pic, I'm linking to Rednesday over at It's a Very Cherry World.  Hey, there's even my red salt and pepper shakers waaay over there on the far right. 




I blogged about them on a Rednesday post from my vintage blog, Magnolia's Attic. If you want to read their red story, here's a link -- Shakin' it up in red!


Maybe when he goes to the store again, he'll get us some actual food!!

Running low on paper goods always warrants a trip to the store! Can't run out of those!

I'm laughing because my hubby buys "backup" stuff too. It's the kinds he hates to make sure it's punishment enough to go out and buy new! LOL.

Running out of TP is the worst! Right now I have a kitty I have to keep the rolls hide from, because he shreds them to giant piles of fluff every chance he gets!
Blessings,

Seems when I go to the store, it is for things I cannot eat. I use a lot of paper things since it is just me.

My husband laughs at me because I will make sure he buys extra paper products for the bathroom because I don't want to run out.

I wouldn't feel too bad about paper goods. Nowadays, it's not just trees they use to make their products. And most of it is recycled into the earth, once it hits the landfill! {:-D

I use a lot of paper products as well. I just wish they were more sustainable!
Those shakers are cute :)

When my kids asked my mother what was her favorite invention, she said kleenex!
I use paper towels only for cleaning up stuff off the floor or stuff so yucky the cleaning cloth must be thrown away.

Paper goods so cost a lot! but I don't buy paper towels at all, just can't afford everything!
