I am thrilled to share tips about how to organize a linen closet. I am so happy I now have organized sheets, towels, tablecloths, and bedding.
If you are anything like me, the linen closet is one area of my home that gets overlooked. I wash, dry, press, pop onto the self and then I close the doors! I decided it was time to get organized and I am sharing my tips to organize a linen closet with you today.
I think I need to do an organizational week every month. Our home is so organized!
We were just on the phone with our eldest son explaining how organized our home is. He didn’t believe me. My comment was maybe he should read my blog and then he would know. Duh.
How to Organize Your Linen Closet
The “Before” view of my linen closet isn’t too bad. Everything is folded. There is just way too much stuff!
I wanted to make sure you saw our previous office/craft room, butler’s pantry, and kitchen organizing posts.
This is my newly organized linen closet!

Thinning out the Closet
This has been the easiest organizing project of the week. All I did was thin. As in thin out.
I really had to force myself to let go. In a big way.
I literally went through every single item and asked myself every time “Do you really need this?”.
It is amazing how little I have left in my linen closet.

This is what I started with. It didn’t look too bad. Just too much stuff.
The first thing I dad was empty everything out of our linen closet.
It’s very deceiving but our linen closet holds a lot of stuff!
Told ya. Holy cow!
I decided I needed to use labels. I don’t spend a lot of time in my linen closet (which is obvious). Labels help me remember what’s hiding away in the drawers.
Don’t laugh but I now have drawers for three different kinds of table cloths.
I get a lot of satisfaction from throwing things down the stairs so they are actually closer to the trash.
I started attaching the labels to the shelves and drawers. This makes me happy. I know, it’s weird but I love this kind of stuff.
Don’t forget to check out my friend Karianne at Thistlewood Farms and her tips. I love how she folds her towels.
Tomorrow we are sharing closet organization. I am working on my master closet.
