My definition of purge – sell, donate, repurpose or throw away items as you see fit


Declutter 52 things in 52 weeks - Task 14

Table Linens

 When my kids were growing up I didn’t bother putting table clothes over the table.  We had a glass topped table and found it much easier to wipe over the table once dinner was finished, saved my sanity and time not having to constantly wash a tablecloth, as the kids always made a mess!!  We now have a wooden table which needs protecting from scratches so we now always use a tablecloth when eating dinner.  Through the day I pretty it up with a table runner and an ornament.


I reuse the tablecloth until it gets to the point that it needs to be washed (typically 2-3 nights).  After dinner I fold over the tablecloth and shake off all the crumbs outside.  I then fold it up and put it on one of the dining chairs.  It stays on the dining chair until dinner the next day.


Todays task is to:

Sort through your table linens, placemats, drink coasters etc and purge all items you no longer need.  Eg, old tired linens or those that aren’t the correct size for your table.

How many items have you been able to purge today?

I would like to see a photo of your purge pile on Instagram, use the hashtag #declutter52
