I did buy the vitamins and scented wax on my list. I also bought a few random things like some t shirts for me marked down to $2 and $3, a nice gallon plastic pitcher for $1.24.
Then when I saw the yellow, gray and white chevron towels, which match our hall bathroom, I really wanted them.
I was shopping slow so I unfolded the bath towel and liked how it felt and decided I would just buy 1 bath towel and try to turn it into 4 hand towels.
So, I cut the 1 bath towel into 4 hand towel shapes. There was no waste, I just cut it once right down the middle horizontally and then once straight up the middle the length of the towel.
The zigzag will also prevent raveling.
The hall bath- the walls were already yellow, the rugs were already gray and now
I spent less than an hour doing the cutting and sewing.
My towels net cost was $1.74 each compared to 5.96 each.
If I had bought 4 hand towels, it would of been $23.84. So my hour of sewing saved $16.90 and I don't think I would of liked the store bought towels any better than the ones I just sewed.
