Saving Paper Towels When Frying Food

I save a bit on paper towels and the trash they create when I am draining fried foods. Rather than using several layers of paper towels, I first place a few pages of an expired telephone book on the plate, then only one or two towels. I am very careful that the food doesn't touch the telephone book pages. I can make a roll of paper towels last several weeks by doing this.

Your idea is a great one. However may I make this suggestion. Place your fried food in a wire colander that has "feet" under it and then let it drip through on the paper. Your food will remain crisper if it doesn't touch the paper. Then you won't have to use any paper towels.

And leading on from Lilac'c suggestion, how about using a cookie rack?
