Like me, have you decided that 2018 is the year you’re finally going to get your home organized?
Last week we completed the “Amazing Kitchen Pantry Cleanout“. I have always used bins in my kitchen pantry to keep things neat, but I did purchase several new clear plastic cereal keepers to help clear out the clutter of boxes and I have to admit that it looks much better!
Well, if you made it through the 10-Day Simplification Challenge and completed the “Amazing Kitchen Pantry Cleanout” phase, then you are probably ready to take on this week’s task – Organizing the Linen Closet.
I will be honest, this week’s task was easy for me as I do have a touch of OCD. I fold all of my sheets and towels following a certain pattern which automatically makes storing them neatly a breeze.
Here is a video that I found on how to fold a fitted sheet the way I do. Once I finish with the fitted one I then fold the flat sheet the same way but, before folding it into thirds, I lay the fitted sheet at one end (along with the folded pillowcases) and then fold the entire stack into thirds which creates a neat package. This way, they sit neatly on a standard linen closet shelf.
I also fold my towels following a certain pattern and I found a video to help you with that as well.
This article regarding organizing your linen closet offers some great tips too.
HAPPY ORGANIZING! Feel free to drop me a line to share your successes (I’d love to see photos if you have them) or ask a question.
