Linen closets provide the perfect place to store your linen sheets, as well as towels, extra wash clothes, and many other bathroom and household items. This ends up with a closet that stores many things that sometimes end up crowding out its entire purpose – that of storing linens. If this describes your linen closet, let’s look at 3 tips you can implement to help sort and clear out your linen closet.
First of all, let’s assess if being crowded out with bathroom items. Is there tons of extra toilet paper in there, along with soap, wash clothes, cleaning supplies, and other things for your bathroom? If this is the case, I suggest you invest in wire frame storage unit that stands over the bathroom commode. This will free up a ton of space in your closet, as well as give you back lots of precious real estate in the linen closet itself.
Next, we need to sort through what’s inside the linen closet after we take out the bathroom items and group together like items with like items. Additionally, ask yourself with everything you find – do you need this? Does it need to here? Would it make more sense to be stored anywhere else? The goal is to both take an inventory of what’s there but also to remove anything that doesn’t belong.
Our last step is organizing the linen closet. Basically, we need to actually have a way to organize what we want in the linen closet. You can do this in different ones, such as buying little baskets to store things or simply dedicating specific shelves for holding specific things and not messing up this rule.
If you take the time to go through the list above and implement these three steps, I promise your linen closet will benefit from it. The next time you need to find a towel or your bathroom cleaner, it won’t be obscured by a pile of wash clothes or a mountain toilet paper!
