Simplify for Joy #29: Towels

Allow only one set of towels per bathroom.

The benefit of this "rule" is threefold:

  1. You're simplifying.
  2. It will motivate you to wash your towels regularly (and rehang them quickly).
  3. No backlogs = smaller loads of laundry.

As for those old/extra towels:

  • Donate
  • Repurpose - use it for your pets instead (just remember that each pet only needs one, no need to hold on to all of them).
  • Reuse/Recycle - Keep it in the cupboard with the rest of the cleaning materials (they're super handy when you defrost the fridge), or cut them into rags that you can use for floor spills, dusting, etc.

*What’s This?
