Day 4 - Linen Closet

I was dreading this challenge, but I'm glad it's over.  As it turns out, I'm a towel hoarder.  I guess I pretend we're going to have a house full of guests that are all going to need a towel at exactly the same time... but what are the chances of THAT happening?  Here's the "before" shot...


I had several sets of full-size and king-size sheets... we don't have a bed in this house in either of those sizes.  I also had a small stack of baby towels & washcloths... but my "baby" is 2, so I don't need those anymore either.  I got rid of all of the towels and washrags that don't match the colors in either of our bathrooms.  I organized all of the kitchen towels by season (my MIL and GIL love to send us holiday hand towels regularly, and I like them)... but I did get rid of all the towels that were ripped or stained.  My hubby said he'd use some of the towels in the garage, but the rest are going to Goodwill.  Forty-five minutes later, here's the "after" photo...

  1. ALSO... to keep my sheets organized, I put each set of sheets INSIDE one of the pillowcases. No more searching for the pillowcases! :)

  2. Very nice! And I love the idea of putting the sheets inside the pillowcase. No more searching for matching sets either ;)

  3. great job! I bet that feels good. I like the idea to put the sheets in the pillow cases. That is genius, but I can't use it. After cleaning my linen closet today, it came to my attention that I only have 1 set of sheets to fit every bed... the ones that are already on it. The only bed that has 2 sets is the baby's. ha ha! I do; however, have an abundance of pillow cases.

  6. Looks great Danyel! Great idea about putting the sheets in a pillowcase. I will do that next time I'm in my linen closet.

  8. I am really enjoying the "21" day organizing!
    One can really accomplish alot by picking one area at a time. I started with my recipes which were ridiculous! Half I thru out, the rest is for a recipe box, and a binder!
