For two people and three dogs (that also need to be dried), I think we have four.
What, no sharing with the dogs ;)? My husband and I each have one towel and I wash them once a week. We also have a set of guest towels, which I keep in the guest room. The dog has her own towel as well, which sometimes gets commandeered as a clean-up mop. Poor dog.

Boy oh boy, we have tons. I had a pile. Spouse had a pile. My mother bought us some. We got some as packing material when my siblings mailed me some of my parents' stuff. I have a towel that my sister took to summer camp in the 1970s. My mother bought very high quality towels, and they just don't wear out. I definitely don't need them all, but it is nice when I have to clean up cat barf, engine oil, and that kind of stuff, wrap something fragile, etc.

Allll right; I'll come clean ;)

We have 8 bath towels for the two adults and teen, plus 2 baby towels for my daughter.  Plus a guest set of 3 towels.   PLUS 6 towels that we use as rags/for the dog.   PLUS 5 beach towels.   I consider myself as moving towards minimalist.   But, I guess I never questioned the towels....24 towels!!!!

I think this weekend I'll pack of 5 of the 6 rag towels (we had an old dog who peed all the time that we needed them for, but she's no longer with us), at least one of the beach towels, and the 3 guest towels (guests can share whichever of our 8 that are clean).  And in the next year or so the two baby towels can go too and DD can share ours.

I have six bath towels.  I frequently change towels for cleanliness purposes.
