Day 4 - Linen Closet

I was dreading this challenge, but I'm glad it's over.  As it turns out, I'm a towel hoarder.  I guess I pretend we're going to have a house full of guests that are all going to need a towel at exactly the same time... but what are the chances of THAT happening?  Here's the "before" shot...


I had several sets of full-size and king-size sheets... we don't have a bed in this house in either of those sizes.  I also had a small stack of baby towels & washcloths... but my "baby" is 2, so I don't need those anymore either.  I got rid of all of the towels and washrags that don't match the colors in either of our bathrooms.  I organized all of the kitchen towels by season (my MIL and GIL love to send us holiday hand towels regularly, and I like them)... but I did get rid of all the towels that were ripped or stained.  My hubby said he'd use some of the towels in the garage, but the rest are going to Goodwill.  Forty-five minutes later, here's the "after" photo...
