Use your old towels
There is a very interesting relationship between the number of towels in our house and our lifestyle. Let us assume that our individual life begins with our studies.
Let us begin with the analysis of the process of conquest of our house by towels, like an invasion by aliens.
Especially if you don’t live in the same place with your parents during your studies, the relationship starts with towels. In the beginning you don’t have such a good relationship and 2-3 towels are enough for you.
Then your single life begins. Either you live alone or you share the same house with some of your friends. With the start of your working life, things get a little more serious here. You will get to know the towels and replacement towel logics used for other purposes.
But when you get married, everything changes and the invasion begins. From towel to foot towel, from hair towel to kitchen towels, from sports towel to beach towel. Then you realize that half of your laundry basket is full of towels and that you are constantly washing. The old towels will not leave you so quickly, even if they can no longer fulfil their functions. And one day you show them who the boss is and you decide to get rid of your old towels. Of course, to make room for new intruders. How do you get rid of your old towels? Throw it in the trash would not go, you can still use it a little but not so much that you can pass it on to someone who could need it. Here are some suggestions what you can do in this case. These are the things that come to mind, and we would appreciate it if you would share your ideas with us.
