Since I've bought towels never once in our 9 years of marriage, I thought it was reasonable to make a small purchase and lay our towel chaos to rest.
I got this idea from Design Mom. Buy the rainbow and assign each child a color.
Laurie: hot pink
New Baby: yet to be decided, but probably yellow
Guest/Extra towels: red and orange
As our family has grown, it has been such a useful system. It saves big on laundry since each child uses their towel multiple times before they need washing. Also, I like the way they look on the shelf!
Here's George, modeling a chic, green terry cloth.
I bought these towels from Target, and I love them because they are not too thick and bulky. They are a nice size, especially for children. And for $4.99!!! they are fantastic quality. I actually prefer them to our Pottery Barn towels.
Posts like these probably make me seem very type A. I'm really not. I think I'm more of a B+.
Do your kids have assigned towels?
P.S. Color coded cups keep me sane.
