Wake up looking forward to your coffee and realize you've run out of filters? Can't decided whether you should cry and hug the maker or drop and kick it? Well if you've got plain white paper towels you've got coffee (your secret best-friend) to get you through. Just make it into the shape of a cone and trim excess paper towel from top. Viola! Now get your cranky behind a cup of Joe and don't forget to pick up filters on the way home from work.
