  1. we stopped using bleached liners until hubby bought the wrong ones 2 weeks ago LOL but we have a reusable filter basket that my bestie gave me :)

  2. I look forward to the whistle of the tea kettle each morning to mix with my grounds. When you have coffee any other way it’s just not as good!

  3. I picked up a permanent filter for about 3$ and now I never have to buy coffee filters again!

  4. we always buy the unbleached ones at kroger. only place we can find them here.

  5. I bought a mesh coffee filter at Wal-mart for less than 5 dollars. It is reusable, so I never have to worry about filters!

  6. The unbleached ones are much better for your compost bin too! Compost bins love coffee grounds and filters. :)
