I decided to work on the linen closet first, because it would help me with the laundry closet and the guest room.
I started by pulling out all of the towels and putting them on our bed. I thought if I put them on the bed, I’d be motivated to finish.
Another angle – I counted, and we have almost 50 bath towels (not counting hand towels, washcloths, or beach towels). That’s just a few too many for two people.
I decided to box up the bright and pretty ones, because those are my favorites, and I think those will make me the happiest when we un-box them. I kept out the brown ones that we chose to go with our hall bathroom and all of our old towels that we had before we got married.
