Organizing Continued

Yesterday I took a break from the challenge because my linen was already organized, and instead started to catch up on laundry.  Because we dont have much storage space for linen I only keep what we really need.  That means that I have 2 sets of sheets per bed so that when one is in the wash the other can go on the bed.

Lets take a look at how the shelves are organized

Top Shelf

Basket holds sheet set for Master Bedroom, small basket holds my mani/pedi supplies, and the other basket has extra lotions and smell goods from Bath and Body Works or Victoria Secrets.

Bottom Shelf

Stack of 4 towels and in the middle is a basket that keeps all of the bathcloths followed by another set of towels.  I really like using white towels because they look so spa like.

To make the wire shelving look better I added some brown ribbon to tie in with the brown in the baskets.

When I redid this closet (over a year ago) it had a folding door that constantly got in the way, so my hubby took it off and now we have open storage which helps me keep it organized.  Not only did he remove the door, but also 3 other wire shelves which we replaced with an old dresser (i plan on repainting white).  The dresser comes in handy in the bathroom and we keep undergarments in the top two drawers and sheets for the other rooms in the bottom drawer.  

Todays challenge is under the kitchen sink, here is my before (not to shabby if I say so myself).

There isn't much too do here except take out everything and wipe it down and hopefully put down some pretty contact paper.  I would like to find some of the wire baskets like Toni has to put on the doors and label the recycling and trash can.  Other than that this job is DONE! 

This challenge has been so much fun, perhaps because we haven't tackled my tough spots yet. 

Check out A Bowl Full of Lemons for more inspiration.


  1. Everything looks fantastic. Love your linen closet. We have white towels for the guests (which so far, most guests hate!) but I love them - I find the white the easiest to clean. If I could justify it, I would switch all my towels to white.

    Great job!!

  2. Oh wow, I love that little yellow dresser. So smart to remove some of those wire shelves and the door. I have been thinking about getting new towels, and I agree with your point about feeling like a spa. White is sounding nice!

    Great job keeping up with the challenges... I'm super behind. Gotta hop to it!

  3. Looks great! Love the baskets and the little dresser in the closet.

  4. Love the linen closet with the baskets and dresser....great idea!!

  5. WOW! I am in love with your linen closet, what a relaxing space!!

  6. Those bamboo bins/baskets are AMAZING! I would love a full set of those to keep me organized! =)

    keep cleaning/organizing! You're going a great job! <3
