Cheap and Green: The Rag Bag

Growing up, we always had a "rag bag" hanging on a hook in the kitchen pantry. A basic tote bag or laundry sack, the rag bag was the place where we kept rags for cleaning and dusting. Every now and then, my mom would dump the rag bag into the laundry, and we'd have clean rags for the week...

After looking into ways to cut down on paper towels and using Twist Euro Cloths for a while, we've decided to bring back the rag bag in our own kitchen. Although we like the Twist Cloths (and they're definitely greener than paper towels), the rag bag has the added bonus of costing no money at all. Sometimes mom just knows best.
