Organizing the Linen Closet

I recently organized the linen closet.   Here are a few pictures:


1. Organizing is good for the family.  Even if I lived alone, I wouldn’t always remember where I put every little thing.  With a family, labels really help everyone find what they need.

2. I really want to start doing before and after pictures.  I promise to for my next project.  Let’s see; what will it be? :)

3. I am having so much fun with labels.  I got these free from the internet and printed on sticker paper.  Very easy.

4. From now on, I’m buying all white towels. They match and you can bleach them.

  1. So…any tips on keeping things organized when the three other people who live in the house like to toss things all willy-nilly in the general area where things belong?? ;) Your closet looks great, and I’m jealous!!!

    • That is a problem, one that I am sure I will deal with with my crew. I think it just means that you have to keep re-organizing. I am finding it is never ending. I organized the laundry area and it is becoming a mess again and I will need to reorganize! But at least the underlying system is there. Good Luck! :)

  2. I have tried countless times to organize my linen / bathroom closets. They start out looking like your photo and then end up a disaster. Kudos to you for keeping your area neat and tidy at all times!

    • Here’s the thing – I just organized and I totally expect that in a few weeks it will be a mess again. Organizing is something you have to keep doing. Unfortunately it’s like all other housework – it’s like stringing beads on a string with no knot at the end! :) Good luck!
