We have 68
Plus, yes plus! 3 pairs and 2 singles I brought home last week because they were rejects from Vinnies but in better condition than some that I have here. HoHum, no wonder the husband shakes his head in disgust.
So really, not 68 but 76 pillowslips. Honestly. I counted 54 at first but found more as I went through the sheets and tablecloths and then the ones on the line from Vinnies.
Two people live in this house. One queen size bed with 2 pillows.
So maybe we don't need 76 pillowslips.
Some match the sheet sets. Some match the doonas. Some I love. Some I like. This is SO HARD!!
Done. I have culled. I have gone through them all and have put aside all the singles. Except a dark blue one that is the other to a pair that husband has for his work pillow. And a really pretty one that I will take out and use in the caravan at the beach. And we have a couple of pair on the pillows on the bed. Yes a couple of pair in there because I use them as pillow protectors too. Two pair on a pillow at a time.
In the linen cupboard though I now have only 21 pair. Still too much, maybe. OK, not maybe, still too many but, yep there be that but...They are packed up in a neat
What will I do with the ones I no longer want? I will take them down to the next Really Really Free Market. Along with any sheets that I decide I wont keep. But that is tomorrows job.
