Growing up, every time a relative retired and moved to Florida, they'd gift us with towel, sheets, blankets, curtains, and all types of useful items.
The small linen closet in the corner of the bathroom became crammed with towels, washcloths, and sheets. Things went in, nothing left. Worn out items were saved for rags, even if they weren't used.
My family used the same few items over and over, even with the options, because there was no space to sort through items and consider potential choices. Everything took on a stale, unused odor because of lack of airflow.
Your situation may not be that unpleasant. However, you can still take a few minutes to sort through your sheets (and blankets, if there's time).
How many sets do you need for each bed? Do you need to keep items that are worn out … and if so, for what specific purpose? If you are thinking you need to hold onto bed linens just in case you get an overnight couch surfing guest, consider if this has happened to you in the past or would you never invite someone to spend the night on your couch?
