a secret in my closet
it's a small thing, but it has saved me countless hours (and dollars) over the years: no matter how perfect that color matches the rest of the room - or one of the kids' latest disney character obsessions - only buy white.
that goes for both sheets and towels.
no more sorting so the right towels get to the right bathroom, no more rummaging through the closet to find the matching top sheet, and the most thrilling benefit of all - you can bleach the snot out of them and they'll look good as new.
oh, and if you really want to know, the same rule applies to paper products in our house as well. not for any reason other than the fact my mother instilled in me her vehement distaste for the printed varieties (so gauche). can't say the same for her insisting that the spices be put in alphabetical order....
