My new yellow basket
I thought it would be a great basket to place on the kitchen counter and put all of our tea towels in. I had previously kept them in a long narrow drawer and it just wasn't convenient. Every time I needed a new towel I had to reach across the kitchen and search through the drawer. This seemed much more accessible for everyone, which means less paper towels!
I had recently gone through some of our old tea towels and washcloths and made them into cleaning and crafting rags. So I also picked up a few of these...
These yellow and white towels are small for drying your hands or dishes and have a nice soft feel. Plus I'm a sucker for yellow : ) I got two of each color at a whopping total of $2.99!
For bigger messes and clean ups I picked up some heavier bar towels. I'm not as in love with the burgundy color but at $3.99 for 4 on clearance I couldn't pass them up!
