Storing Table Linens~

Hi Everyone!  Hope you all have had a great week thus far.  The past few weeks around here have been down right crazy, but we are starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel.  The new carpet has been installed, the last of the interior rooms painted, and things are slowly making their way back to their respective places.

We've done a TON of weeding out in the process.   As you may or may not recall, my motto this year was to SIMPLIFY!!!  And, that we have.  It feels really good to be rid of excess stuff (my dad hates that word, what exactly is stuff anyway?!)  Don't get me wrong...we still have an entire  basement waiting to be decluttered as well, but the main living areas are just about done.  I am loving not having to pick up 400 things just to clean a room!

Earlier today, I decided to get our extra table linens in order.  After purging soiled or outdated linens, I stacked each set of freshly pressed napkins and tied them together with some leftover burlap ribbon I had laying around.  I carefully folded each of the table cloths, and once done placed all in this fantastic box I got at Ikea yesterday.  Now all are in one place, and there is even room to add some new ones when the time comes.

Dinner Napkins

Tablecloths and Runners

All neatly tucked in side with room to spare!

The box is the Kajsa box from Ikea, is canvas with a hard bottom insert, so it breathes.

Hope everyone has a great rest of the week!  Any exciting plans for the weekend?  Nothing exciting here as we will probably venture down to the dungeon to start the great purge.

I know that all the decluttering you are doing feels GREAT! I love how you're storing your napkins- everything having a place:) I still remember how organized your kitchen is- very inspiring!
