We have four sets of Queen sheets, and 3 doona covers I think? With the current high rotation of guests, it seems ‘enough’ with not too many. THough today the cleaning lady found a not so clean, clean sheet. Some sort of mud on it!? Mystery to me.

We have 2 bathtowels each, and then three smaller towels which guests use (but we use as gym/pool towels too). There’s also three pool/beach specific towels that have crept in… perhaps too much?

As to linens for tables, I staunchy reject table clothes and table mats, thanks for stainless steel. And borrowing is easy, people seem to have oddles. I do have ‘real’ napkins, though the stained/dye failure mustard to navy are now just ‘blah’ colour, and might be better in the declutter box. Thanks for inspiring me (they were second hand to start with).

Oh I have MORE towels. Mother gifted them to me. I stashed them away – I swear if a shelter or some bad event comes, I might just pass them right on. They are a lovely colour though, which is why she bought them for me.

We have one spare each too. It simplifies everything. That’s a lot of people to have visiting. I’m glad they bring their own towels! :)

Before that we lived in the same house for about 8 years. I’ve had a mini-cull of the linen closet with each move, but I’m looking quite harshly at it at the moment.
I’m considering donating the bath towels we received as a wedding gift. We haven’t used them in quite a while now, and in the last 12 months I’ve bought new towels for us all to use. This gives us one to use and one spare for each person in the house (five of us).
I’ve held on to the ‘wedding’ towels for so long with the visitor excuse, but I think it is pretty rare to have enough visitors to justify keeping so many extra towels. Only once in the past year have we had more than two people visit at a time, and the larger group who did come would have been happy to bring their own towels (they are a family of 9).
The towels’ days are limited!

And as you may remember, the last time I was in the UK, I was looking for more! I really use and enjoy it all, though!
