I think minimizing is about keeping only what you need. Others are different, but for me personally, I do have some extra towels and sheets because I often need them. We are definitely not the bare minimalist type and never will be. There can be a happy medium there. But do you really need to pack your linen closet with tons of spares to have a few extra things for guests? No. Figure out what you actually NEED depending on how many guests you have at a time and then go from there. I used to cram stuff everywhere and now I have one shelf for linens and blankets and one shelf for towels, washcloths and hand towels.
