Tuesday's Tip ~ Linen Closet Organization

Hey y'all!  Well, I haven't given you a tip in forever which was motivation for me to organize a bit.

I started out with the linen closet.

First I began taking everything out of the closet to start from scratch.  

Basically this is what it looked like before I began.  Well, I started and then realized I needed to take pictures.  

Everything seemed mismatched.  First aid, toiletries, towels, sheets, blankets, etc. 

 The first aid supplies and our toiletries were the biggest challenge.

 All of the first aid supplies were just thrown in this container.  We had 4 neosporins, 3 hydrocortisone creams, and bandaids everywhere!

 Then I thought about containers I had on hand.  Like this pretty little container that I got free to hold a roll of toilet paper.  I never used it for that and it has sat in the bottom of the cabinet for a year.

 I put all of the smaller tubes of medicine in this container.

 All of the bandaids were put in this container, which was from crystal light packs. 

 This glass canister now holds samples and extra tooth brushes.  

 Almost there...  This closet is actually pretty large.

All of the larger items were put in the baskets. 

 AHHHH!  This is much better.  Now everything is organized in baskets that I had on hand.  I didn't purchase 1 thing for this project. 

And all of the towels, wash cloths, and hand towels, are now in the bathroom where they belong.  

There is even more room to put a shelf here for more storage. 

Voila!  The finished product.  This makes me happy.
