Linens ’n’ things

We are well into November and Thanksgiving is less than two weeks away. If you haven’t yet, you may want to switch your bedding to flannel sheets, blankets and a cozy quilt or down-filled comforter.

Now is a good time to check your linen closet (or drawers) for your supply of sheets, blankets, pillowcases, towels and pillows.

Are items in good condition for another winter season? Do you have matching sets for guests (that aren’t a combo of Star Wars, Frozen and Spiderman)? Do you need extras of particular sizes? Note sizes and colors of any linens you will need and watch for sales before guests arrive.

If you are lucky enough to have Christmas- or winter-themed bedding, make sure to freshen it up before making up the bed.
