Throwing in the Towel

As a southern girl, I think loving monograms is in my DNA. But I have recently discovered that personalizing household items also helps teach my family personal responsibility. Lately I have grown frustrated finding wet towels dropped carelessly around the house, so when Horchow put these monogrammed Ralph Lauren Lawton towels on sale, I saw my opportunity to teach some "personalized responsibility." I considered ordering only one monogrammed towel for the real culprit, whose initials are IWM. He must be to blame for our scattered towels, because whenever I find one and demand to know who didn't hang up their towel, I'm met with a chorus of "It Wasn't Me!" In the end I decided to order one for each person in our household, so we can all identify and hang up our own towels. If you are thinking about throwing in the towel on your family's bath-time organization, find the lowest prices of the season on the fluffy towels pictured in the link above.

Love these towels! My daughter has a monogram machine....her hubby is afraid his boxers will be monogrammed soon!

Deborah Hutton said...

All my children have color-coded towels AND monogramming ! We needed a double dose of responsibility because "IWM" lives here too !! He gets around, doesn't he ?

Melissa Lester said...

Yes, Deborah, he does get around, and he leaves destruction in his path!

LOL at "IWM". My husband says that and we are the only two who live in the house! He blames the cat.

How funny; mine says he can't find a hook that doesn't look like it for decoration only. That's his way of letting in lay where it falls.

I had a sibling with those same initials! It's easy right now for me- if I didn't do it, I know it wasn't the dog! Wonderful idea!

I ABSOLUTELY love Horchow and have been ordering these Ralph lauren towels with monogram for my third year now. We use them around here and love to gift them as well. They usually have the free monogram and great sales often. Free ship makes it even SWEETER....
