Linens and A Twilight quiz

I am a big fan of having plenty of linens in a home. I can't tell you the number of times we have needed to change the sheets on all 3 of the kids beds in the middle of the night. This is especially true when a stomach virus is invading our home. Same goes for towels. We have 30 towels(at last count but I might have gotten rid of a few now) and all of them get used constantly. Like I said...I am a big fan of linens.

What I am not a fan of is having tons of sheets, blankets,etc. all thrown in a closet together. You can't tell what you have and if you are in the dark in the middle of the night you might as well forget about it. Lately I have been all about purging and organizing. Fall just gets me in the mood and then there is no stopping me. Today I hit the kids room. One of the tasks I completed was their linens. They were all folded on their shelf but not organized. Now I know exactly where everything is and I will have no trouble finding it.

I keep a bunch of blankets because they come in very handy when company is staying over. Plus some of them are very special to us. On their shelf from left to right:

Heavy blankets/quilts
fitted sheets
flat sheets
pillow cases

I am feeling great about all the purging I am doing. I even took the kids 18 gallon storage bin of play food/kitchen stuff and condensed it down to 1 of the very small storage containers. Anything broken or old went. They still have more than enough to host a catering event but we are not overwhelmed by the huge 18 gallon box anymore. This is feeling great. I just love this time of year and the energy it brings.

Before I forget..Twilight fans...My step sister posted a fun quiz to take to see which character you are. I posted mine on the sidebar and if you click on it it will take you to the site to take the quiz as well. I am an Esme. I already knew that though. :)

blogbomber...who the hell are you???

You need to get a life and leave people alone!!!

Yes, it is a good idea to have extra linen, I learned that when I had 4 extra people staying with us during the hurricane! Well, after the fact! lol

Sounds like a lot of dishes are gone..go you! :)

Such pretty, organized piles. :) We also keep lots of linens on hand. I learned from the disaster of both floors of my house being flooded 4 years ago that there is never such a thing as too few towels. My linen closet is tiny though so all the extras are in a rubbermaid box in the attic.

Way to go on the purging! I'm trying to do a bit of that myself.
