This is a serious question peeps....
How many towels does one family or person need?
While doing some laundry today and tidying up (Oh shut up! It happens occasionally)
I discovered we have about 5000 towels. But we use the same 4!
Mark uses the same 4, that gets him through the week until laundry day. I have my couple faves. The boys still use hooded towels. Each bathroom has a cabinet above the toilet and they are all stuffed with towels. Under Mark's sink has several. Plus I still have a closet in the laundry room with half a dozen more at least.
I hate to have them all taking up space. I hate to get rid of them. What will I do when suddenly I have 35 guests over at 1 time who all need showers?
I laughed at myself today as I was looking at the freaking towels because not too long ago my neighbor was telling me she helped her mom work on her house one weekend. She said her mom was borderline hoarder! And she had about 40 towels that she made her throw out. I am so not a hoarder but where did the towels come from?
When Mark was living here for 6 months in an apartment before the family moved up, he had a couple sets. And he is notorious for being on his way to the gym in the mornings, where he showers more than at home, and realizes he forgot a towel. So he will run into walmart and buy one. That can account for at least a dozen. The rest? I don't know. Cause I'm pretty picky about towels. I like nice thick, fluffy ones. And I want the ones in each bathroom to match. Now it seems none of them do.
How many do you have?
