over the past 2-3 weeks, we have been using our old wedding napkins at meals. while cleaning out the basement, we found a box of several hundred and promptly decided to use them until they were gone. to be honest, i’m not sure why we kept them in the first place. believe it or not, over the past 9 years, we just haven’t found the right occasion to use light blue napkins that read, “joshua and kim, june 12, 1999.” so we have decided to use them during our family meals.
using the napkins has had several benefits:
- we’ve been able to tell our kids about our wedding.
- we minimalize every time we sit down to eat.
- we are being good stewards of the environment.
- we’ve saved like $1.30 in napkin expenses from this month’s budget.
