GOAL CLEAN UP YOUR LINEN CLOSET
Ensure that linens and other necessities are easy to find with properly labeled baskets and bins.
MAXIMIZE YOUR SHELVES by mixing square and rectangular bins with loose and irregular-shaped items, opposite. Professional organizer Jamie Novak recommends wire or clear baskets so you can see what you have without needing to label them.
REDUCE PACKAGING when sorting bulk items in the closet, says professional organizer Kate Martin. Supplies such as clothespins, cotton balls, and bandages will store perfectly in glass containers, below, so they’re easy to see and grab.
ROTATE YOUR LINENS after doing laundry by placing clean towels, sheets, and blankets at the bottom of each corresponding pile. “This will prevent only a few linens from being overworn and ensures that the bottom of the stack gets used,” Novak says.
