Organizing Your Home in 2018 – Linen Closet

Real Estate Agent with BERKSHIRE HATHAWAY Georgia Properties 157561
Like me, have you decided that 2018 is the year you’re finally going to get your home organized?
Last week we completed the "Amazing Kitchen Pantry Cleanout". I have always used bins in my kitchen pantry to keep things neat, but I did purchase several new clear plastic cereal keepers to help clear out the clutter of boxes and I have to admit that it looks much better!
Well, if you made it through the 10-Day Simplification Challenge and completed the "Amazing Kitchen Pantry Cleanout" phase, then you are probably ready to take on this week's task - Organizing the Linen Closet.
I will be honest, this week’s task was easy for me as I do have a touch of OCD. I fold all of my sheets and towels following a certain pattern which automatically makes storing them neatly a breeze.
Here is a video that I found on how to fold a fitted sheet the way I do. Once I finish with the fitted one I then fold the flat sheet the same way but, before folding it into thirds, I lay the fitted sheet at one end (along with the folded pillowcases) and then fold the entire stack into thirds which creates a neat package. This way, they sit neatly on a standard linen closet shelf.
I also fold my towels following a certain pattern and I found a video to help you with that as well.
This article regarding organizing your linen closet offers some great tips too.


HAPPY ORGANIZING! Feel free to drop me a line to share your successes (I'd love to see photos if you have them) or ask a question.

Good morning, Gayle Barton, Forsyth County Real Estate that type of organizing demands a touch of OCD, and I have that, too... all closets are organized and color coded...  I would have worked from left to right.... as in, shove it all to the left!! but that's my thinking....

I'm obsessed with organizing and very OCD- I try to convince myself that it's a great trait to have in this business.  Ha.  I needed this sheet folding video!  Even with the instructions I have seen/read, I still never seem to do it right.  There was one I saw recently where everything was folded and stored inside the pillow case- genius!
