My big revelation is to get rid of color— I have so much laundry with two boys and a husband…  in this downsizing scenario I’ve decided to use only WHITE sheets, WHITE towels and anything else white.

I will donate the colored towels and sheets to the humane society to use in their kennels and clean up–and I have less color separation with washing.

If everything is white, it makes laundry easier.  Always on warm water and always with bleach!

We had too many towels anyways.  These “mauve” (purple!) ugly Ralph Lauren towels I got when we were first married can now line the cages of the stray dogs in style.

We have no linen closet so this 6 square cabinet I got from Pottery Barn years ago is serving as our linen closet.  We’ve got a really wide back hall so it works!
