31 Days of 15 Minute Organizing – Day 6: Linen Closet

Welcome to Day 6 of 31 Days of 15 Minute Organizing

Set your timer and get ready to get your Linen Closet organized and in tip top shape. If you feel you can’t get the whole closet in order in 15 minutes, set the timer and work on one shelf at a time. Depending on how big your closet is, it might take a little longer. As you can tell, my closet is very small.

I recommend starting with the sheets. My favorite tip for sheet sets is to store them inside the pillow case. When a bed needs to be changed everything is inside the pillowcase and all in one place. It makes it way easier on the kids to help too. Keep all the sheets of one size stacked together. If you have any sheets with holes it’s time to toss them.

Now it’s time to move on to the towels. I fold the bath towels because I have plenty of room for them but I roll the pool towels because I’m short on space. Did you know rolling towels takes up less space?

Plus when the kids pull out their favorite pool towel they don’t mess up the whole stack. They all have their favorite, right?

Take out any worn or stained towels. You can cut them up to use as rags or my husband will use them when he works on the car. They’re also great for drying the car after you’ve washed it.

Donate blankets you no longer use and toss blankets and pillows that are worn or stained. Straighten the blankets and pillows and you’re finished.

You might be wondering where I keep hand towels and wash cloths. I keep them in baskets in the bathrooms. It’s convenient and gives me more space in the linen closet.

I also like the linen closet to smell nice so I put a couple dryer sheets on the shelves to keep it smelling fresh.

    FYI: Old sheets, towels and blankets are also accepted at the local ASPCA or pet shelters for bedding.

    Wow – big help. My linen closet is triangular shaped with no light. Rolling the towels and standing them on end holds more towels and organizing the sheets will be a great help if I don’t have my flashlight handy. Thanks!
