My eight-year old daughter, Virginia, seems partial to using the collar of her shirt to wipe her mouth in place of anything resembling a proper napkin. The rest of us rely on this basket, which has become a permanent fixture on our dining table. Outside of big gatherings and birthday parties, paper napkins have become largely a thing of the past in our house. Cloth ones can stand up to multiple uses, get washed as needed, and save paper as well as a bit of cash. You can get fancy and assign a different color or pattern to each family member, although I’m not that organized or that hygenic. Hopefully Virginia will catch on before college
