As soon as January 1 hit I had the urge to start organizing more spaces in the house. We live in a relatively small house and I am constantly attempting to find more storage space. Last week I cleaned out the cupboards in the laundry room and got rid of unnecessary items. This week I tackled the linen closet. I swear I had gone through it last spring when I spring cleaned, but obviously not. It was a disaster! So where did I go for inspiration? Pinterest of course. I found a closet that was similar in size to mine and based my closet off of that. Click here to see the closet. Then I took a trip to target and with the help of my awesome friend Amy I picked out a few containers to help organize. I came home and got to work (ok well after I took care of the kids and got them down for a nap).
Here is the before picture. YIKES.
It took everything out and layed it out on my bed. I separated the things that needed thrown out and the things that I wanted to keep. Then I began to organize them into bins.
I love Target
Once everything was in a container I could rearrange the closet. It took several times and a little help from my husband but this is what we came up with. I might still do a little tweaking but it is MUCH better and more organized. Excuse the non matching towels but that's how we roll! This is before I labeled all of the containers, but that also helps a lot as well. Now we know where to find our items such as medicine, lotion, or toothbrushes. Pinterest project complete. Now on to the bathroom cabinets and the pantry!
