So, I’ve already admitted that there are certain areas of my house that don’t get as much attention as they should. Typically, these areas live behind doors that are able to be closed quite quickly (like closet doors). There has been one area that I’ve neglected, oh… pretty much since we moved in seven years ago: the Linen Closet.
I usually wash our frequently-used sheets and towels and then put them into the bathroom or back onto the beds. And storing the extras? Oh yeah… they’re there… somewhere.
Here is where I share my shame:
Can it get worse than that? Isn’t that what most people’s laundry piles look like BEFORE they wash their clothes?
Well… at least there are shelves in there… that’s pretty good…
Before tackling any area that is loaded down with clutter and neglect, it must be completely emptied.
And voila! Instant shelf dividers! Cost? $1 in zap-straps! Woot!
I know that the middle shelf’s dividers are closer together than its brother’s below. Keep reading for my genius moment!
There are spaces for washcloths, towels, sheets, cleaning supplies and napkins. Everything has a home, and there are walls to prevent mushing and mashing and general canoodling. I like it.
Even Hubby was impressed when I called him up to take a look. What a gal with a plan and some zap-straps can do….
It’s almost pretty.
And if you want to judge me based on my Before picture, that’s okay. I judged me too. That’s why doors are so important in life. They are good for self esteem!
If you have a closet that looks a little (or a lot) like mine, consider picking up a length of wire shelving and some zap straps. You’ll save half the cost of the premade numbers, not to mention you’ll get to strut around like the Organizational Peacock that you are!
At least, that’s what I’ve been doing…
