My mother kept things in a beautiful linen chest. It has a shelf that held papers and the bottom of it could hold sheets and towels that were clean but not in use. I adopted that habit years ago when a friend owned a furniture store and got me a discount on a maple Lane chest – just like my mother’s.
One of the curses of having lots of storage space though is the accompanying problem that you rarely need to clean it out. I had towels and sheets in there I haven’t used since I moved nearly five years ago.
Net net? Two more bags – of sheets and towels I haven’t touched in nearly five years.
