Thumbs up Re: If you tend toward minimalism...

I fold sheet sets and then put each set into one of the pillow cases for that set. So you grab a pillow case and it contains a complete set. If you have closet space, you can hang the sets this way with a skirt hanger.

I keep the sets in the rooms with the beds they go with. So each bedroom has a spot for sheets. I stopped having a central location because it's much faster for me this way. I (or my kid) strip a bed and immediately put on the other set.

I do the pillow case thing too.



I store the kids extra set in their room. They have twins with 3 drawers that slide out, so it goes in there.


Master is in the linen closet for no reason other than thats where I put it.

Yeah, each of the kids have their extra set in their closet. We live in a small townhouse and don't have much storage space. Our bathroom towels are under the sink (our bathroom has two sinks/small vanities - one side had towels and medical stuff like dd's nebulizer, oximeter, and O2 supplies, and the other has toilet paper and toiletries) one set of towels is out hanging on the bars (two hand towels upstairs, one downstairs, and two bath towels upstairs), and the other set is in the vanity. The few extra, unlatching towels are in the downstairs vanity because that bathroom gets used more for hand washing during the day so we change out the towels more there.
