Bandanarama!

FRUGAL FRIDAY

On this Frugal Friday I’d like to talk about bandanas.

I own a lot of bandanas, in just about any color or design you can imagine. I used to wear them under my motorcycle helmet, but since they started making more and more cute do-rags (aka skullcaps) for women, those are now my head covering of choice under my helmet.

I still use a couple of pink bandanas (a must for this pink girl!) to tie around my neck or to cover my nose and mouth during high-pollen seasons, but this still left me with a whole lotta unused bandanas!

My daughter, Kathy, and I were shopping a month or two ago and noticed what cute bandana patterns are available now. Our first thought was how cute these would be as dinner napkins:

  • They don’t cost much.
  • They’re the right size.
  • They wash and dry easily.
  • And—if you’re actually into it and you absolutely think they need it—they can easily be ironed.
  • And you can find them in so many stores now.
  • Oh, and how much more recyclable/reusable can you get?

So let me ask you: what’s not to love about all that?

About Anna Popescu

I live in northern Arizona with my husband, Rick. I am blessed to say that Rick and I are at the bottom corners of a triangle where Jesus sits at the top corner. My children, Kathy & Alan, live in the Phoenix area and make this mom's heart thankful they have grown to be such wonderful and caring adults. Alan married in 2010, so I am also blessed with Denise as a special daughter-in-love. The Lord took my Mom home in 2007, and I miss her. My Dad and two sisters live in Florida while my two other sisters live in the Northeast. God has also blessed me and Rick with a local family of very close-knit friends. I love to write when I am able, but on the days when I am struggling with health issues and can't manage much of anything, I can at least crochet. These days I mainly crochet lapghans of various colors and sizes for area rehab centers and nursing homes.
