We live in a very old house so closet space is limited. I have one closet that houses my coats, linens, pillows, and a few rarely worn, fancy dresses. Needless to say, this space needed some de-cluttering.
I had four sets of sheets for guests. I don’t even have a guest room.
This is a perfect example of holding onto things that we don’t need “just in case”.
Unnecessary pillows and sheet cluttered up this much needed space. I bagged them up and sent all but one extra set to charity.
I kept the fancy dresses though. I wear them, on occasion, and the ones that are too youthful, I will save and give to my goddaughter.
You need a new pillow when:
Down and feather pillows, fold your pillow in half . If the pillow stays folded when you release it, you need a new pillow. It should spring back to its original shape and fluffiness.
Synthetic fiber pillows, Fold the pillow in half and put a heavy book on it. The pillow bounce back to its original shape and toss the book.
