I love holiday napkins, and I love being thrifty. Combine those two things and you end up with the stack of Halloween napkins pictured above.
Would you like to see exactly what I have in my stash?
I love this witch. Doesn't she seem to enjoy dancing by the light of the full moon? She's even enticed the serious owl to kick up his
I'm sure I bought these for the happy jack-o-lantern.
Can you tell I love pumpkins?
There are a lot of happy faces on this set of napkins. I may have named each of the characters in my mind when I picked these up. Which one is your favorite?
Here's a friendly ghost who wants to get his message across.
I think these are so pretty for fall, not just for Halloween. These were free at my local Salvation Army thrift store.
I bought the others for $0.35-$0.55 since last Halloween. Why did I buy so many? Well, read the first sentence. They were on clearance. Even at Dollar Tree, those napkins would cost a dollar a package.
Obviously, I didn't realize I had so many when I bought each package. There's 20 napkins in each, and I have 6. Let's practice our math skills by multiplying 20 times 6 - which gives me 120 napkins.
There are only 31 days in October. Hubby and I would have to eat 4 meals a day to use all of those. There is no way that will happen. What was I thinking?
This is a problem I have when thrifting. I buy things because they're a good buy, forgetting that I might not need them.
I guess I could take a package or two to my folks so they can have a festive table, too. Do you think they will like the dancing witch and friendly jack-o-lantern?
I think I've seen others mod podge napkins on things, but I can't think of anything. I don't want to buy something for that idea because that would defeat my purpose of being thrifty.
By the way, I can't share them with my daughter. They don't use napkins at their house, only paper towels. Personally, I think Cate, my granddaughter, would like the napkins with the ghost on them. And, she could practice her letter recognition!
Do you use napkins or paper towels at your house? Anyone use cloth napkins?
Do you "fall" for items on clearance?
