One of the main projects on my February Organizing 101 list was to organize our linen closet.
When we first moved in I had neatly labeled all of the shelves but over time it has turned into a jumbled mess.
Part of that is because I CANNOT fold a fitted sheet to save my life... I've even watched YouTube tutorials from Martha Stewart.. FAIL. Obviously I cannot even follow a video.
Here are the before photos:
Step one was to remove everything and edit...
For example we do not need to keep king sheets in here because we no longer have a king size bed... Also all queen flat sheets were placed in a bin for storage because we don't use them... don't judge it is a personal decision.
Throws, light blankets and my travel snuggie were all placed in the basket at the top of the closet.
I also added shelf dividers to better organize the other areas...
Towels are doubled up and wash clothes / hand towels are folded to the side
Duvet covers and Pillow cases
on the bottom you will find out "Medicine Cabinet"... I have bins for:
- Fever/Pain Medication
- Dental Care
Here is a before and after as a reminder!
However, I still have a few items on my wish list down the road...
- Something on the back of the door... Maybe a bedtime checklist for Emma and Hunter
- Would like to paint the background wall a fun bright color
- Fun shelf liners
