It’s the best thing isn’t it?
At the end of a long day.
Sliding into beautifully crisp.
And laying down, our weary heads.
On a pretty pillow.
The actual laundering of the sheets.
On the other hand.
Is NOT so great is it?
We put it off. And off.
Or shove yet more sheets in the laundry basket.
Grabbing another clean set.
Until we’re down to the frayed ones.
Or the faded grey ones.
Or those worn thin.
Or the odd sized ones.
That don’t truly fit any bed in our home.
Or the crazy coloured, peculiar patterned ones that were going super cheap in the sale. For good reason!!
Or those – heaven forbid – with dubious marks.
We’d rather not think about.
And then even if clean.
They do NOT give us the joy of a freshly laundered bed.
And just make us feel grotty about ourselves.
AND they take up room.
LOTS of room.
So today we’re going to let go of all those random sheets and pillow slips we barely use.
OR would rather not when we do.
If you’re following along with my quick daily declutter, read on. BUT if you’re new do hop back and read how just 10 things can help you declutter easily.
Just 10 Things – Sheets & Pillows
As always we’ll stick to the just 10 things rules:
- Take 5 minutes or so, 15 minutes max
- Focus on sheets & pillows
- Open our eyes to those that don’t contribute to a good night’s sleep!
- And without yanking all the bed linen out everywhere
- Spot any we’re ready to let go
We’ll keep our eyes peeled for all the different types of sheets and pillow slips we’ve accumulated over the years …
- Fitted sheets
- Bottom sheets
- Top sheets
- Kids sheets
- Baby sheets
- Waterproof sheets
- Pillow slips
- Pillow protectors
- Mattress protectors
And let go of those we’ll be happier without.
If they are grotty we can take them to fabric recycling.
To be made into other stuff.
Good quality baby and kids ones can be sold on or passed on easily on local Facebook parents groups.
And decent adult sized ones may be helpful for a local refuge.
Well done for all those you let go.
And sleep well 🙂
