Neat & Tidy: How-To Simply Organize Your Linen Closet

Neat & Tidy: How-To Simply Organize Your Linen Closet 

Over the last year, you've all more-than-likely have been organizing on a weekly or monthly basis. After all, what else is there to do, but be organized? 

Same here. I finally was able to get my linen closet in my bathroom to a point where it wasn't driving me insane & I wanted to share the end result with you.

The key to any home organization {not just linen closets} is that you have to keep after it. There isn't a one-time organization fix & that's it forever. No. In order to keep things tidy, you have to make time { at-least once a month} to keep after your progress. You might recall last year's post when I organized the underneath portion of my bathroom sink.  

Before I dive into how to organize your linen closet, I want to say, this post is completely shoppable. If you are reading this post in your email inbox or on Blog Lov'in click here, to read today's post online so you can shop the widgets.  

 Organize Your Linen Closet 

Blue & White Threshold Bins 


I have to say, organizing my linen closet was really inspired {& pulled together} by these blue and white floral Threshold bins from Target

I was able to organize everything from toiletries, towels, wash rags, sheets, & medications/remedies using the different size Threshold bins. For the stuff like lotion & shampoo that I didn't want to go inside a cloth bin, I bought twin clear plastic bins. 

I like the idea of marrying a pattern with clear/acrylic in all of my decor & you can see that here in the closet {which doesn't get much light which explains the bit of noise in the photos, sorry!}. 

Makeup Organization


For the makeup I use every day, I create a little 'get-ready' station inside the linen closet using clear stacking makeup storage containers as well as a few free-standing clear containers.  

DIY Labels 


Labels are the key component when organizing anything in your home. I made my labels from the remaining bits of cut blinds, but Etsy has so many cute labels you can order. They remind me of The Home Edit

Fun organizing note, I adhered the labels to the bins using gold paper clips, super easy!

Decorative Elements 

I couldn't resist framing a photo I took of Malibu Barbie to hang inside my linen closet. I thought her blue swimsuit went perfectly with the blue and white Target bins. I purchased a white matted frame & just used a Command Hook to hang the photo.
