With the new year, still young, comes the annual inventory of the household linens. By the inventory method a housewife knows exactly what she has on hand, the condition they are in, when they were purchased and the amount that is needed. It is always a good plan to mark the date purchased on each new piece of linen. This will help the housewife in telling the age of her linens, and it is also a valuable aid in telling what linens to use for the family and what to use for the guests.
