The Linen Closet

Last week I gave a sneak peek of some touch ups I have been doing to our linen closet. You might remember my post at the beginning of this year that I have hopped on the band wagon of decluttering, again. πŸ™‚

It truly is very freeing, and it makes me so happy to open a closet or drawer, see it so well organized and be able to find just what I am looking for.

One of the first things I tackled was our linen closet, grouping like things together, purging stained dish cloths and towels. Then slowly, I began to add things I loved little by little, until I loved the organized look of our linen closet. I added good micro fiber dish cloths ( e cloths, pictured above), and 2 different types of dish towels (TEKLA by Ikea, and Kitchen Towels by Grove). I labeled the shelves so the order could be maintained. It looked really good.

But in an organization FB group I am in, a member posted a picture of her linen closet and shared how she kept stacks from tipping over, which my dish towels and wash cloths frequently do. πŸ™‚ She bought containers to well, contain them, which is a Kon Mari principle. It looked fantastic!

Those containers though, can sometimes come with a hefty price tag. But not these, they are from IKEA, and you get six containers for $6.99. There are 3 sizes in each pack and you get 2 of each. I bought 2 packages, and had the perfect amount left to organize my lingerie drawer as well. They are called SKUBB boxes and come in white, teal, and a dark gray.

I also added a light up above as this closet is so dark. It has a motion senor and isΒ  USB chargeable, I really like it so far.

I have learned, as it is with most things, that the organizing will never be DONE, so touch up and maintenance will always be necessary, but that’s OK.

This is what it looks like currently:

It’s not perfect, but it’s orderly, and it makes me smile when I open the closet.

Have you done any decluttering/organizing around your home lately?
