The linen cupboard was the next place to be organised. This was what I started with. We have king size and double size bedding. My linen cupboard also has to hold a lot of non-linen storage items as well. I need a place for towels and sheets, but also cleaning supplies, beach bags, games and travelling items. This is what I started with;
I first emptied the cupboard completely and was in such a mess. Then I started to sort and purge, and I needed to be as ruthless as I could. As I started to put things back away, I had a long thought about my linens. I have kept some items for when my cats have died. I am not going to use brand new bed sheets, if my cats are going to be sick on them. We have two cats over ten years old, and they have started to be sick on our bed. Not nice but what can you do ?
Using baskets and containers is especially helpful when it comes to items that are hard to stack neatly, such as flannels, hand towels, cleaning supplies etc. If your piles are always toppling and in disarray, give them a dedicated container/basket.
We do have a lot of linen and towels almost double what I expected to find. But that is fine. We are planning within ten years to move to Spain part time, and then we can take any duplicate bedding and towels with us. Any things I was getting rid of, I bagged up and took them to one of the charity bins, who sell the fabrics based on the weight. This is my organised linen cupboard which I am pleased with. Now onto towards something else I need to organise !
