A while ago I organized my linen closet, but I never got around to taking pictures of it being finished. Then, life happened and it became a big mess again! So, I recently got it all cleaned up again, and I hurried up to take pictures of it while it was still pretty and nice.
First up, I will show you the way before pictures. This was before I really did anything to it, other than just pile stuff up on the shelves. Warning: this is not pretty!
In the next picture you can see the sheets stacked up neatly. Our linen closet isn’t huge, but it is very deep. The best tip I can offer for you for a space like this is to layer your storage. If you put lower profile items in the front you can make full use of your space. You can also see the plastic zipper storage bags with all the extra linens in them. The very top shelf holds two bedding sets for our air mattresses. They are in Space Bags. Unfortunately, I have not had luck with them keeping out the air, but my main concern was keeping them all together, so this works fine for us.
The great thing about this, was I didn’t have to purchase anything new for this project. Just by placing like items together and straightening everything up, the space is so much more functional. Having the kid’s outgrown clothes in this closet was not working. I am still trying to figure out a better solution. My benchmark for whether or not an organized space is really working for our family is if I can straighten the space in 10 minutes or less. If it takes longer than that, I need to re-evaluate what is working and what is not.
Happy Organizing! Have you organized any spaces in your home lately??
