My husband goes to visit other people's homes and finds their towels to be either rag like or thin. For years, at least once a month, he buys a medium sized towel when doing grocery shopping. They are never expensive because at a large store, they are between $4 -7 each. You do not miss the money because it is part of your grocery shopping and you will always have nice towels for your family and visitors.
By buying a medium towel, there is no necessity to buy large bath or sauna towels, because a med. towel can do everything or use two for a bath or shower and when you have to do laundry these towels wash and dry with less water and less air time, saving you money in two places and keeping up appearances.
Then he recycles the old towels to the rag bin thus not using a paper towel and saving money in a third place. It is good to have some fancy towel sets for important guests and special occasion that you put aside in your cupboard.
