Re-organizing your linen closet can make you feel 10 years younger...

Tuesday, February 19, 2013

Yes, I think re-organizing and purging your linen closet has anti-aging effects. I spent countless hours this past weekend tackling my neglected and terrifying linen closet. I purged, I folded and I labelled. Took a quick trip to my local Homesense and found some baskets and was all coming together. I know what you are saying, get a grip, its only a closet. But I'm a shove everything in the closet and shut the door type of gal, so it is an amazing relief and joy to have a good looking closet.  Almost beats out a wine buzz. I feel lighter to have gotten rid of things, made an inventory of what I had and now have a list of things I will replace (ahem, new towels and maybe some bedding). Besides, I walk by my closet any chance I get and take a peak inside and smile like a giddy school girl...instant youth effect.
Yep the ghastly before shot. I know my mom is probably squirming in her seat right about now. Sad, sad linen closet. What happened?
I gasp at this pre-hoarder type of showing. But its real I suppose. I am far from perfect and there are days where laundry becomes an overwhelming beast and stays in the basket. Look at that, I pretty much gave up folding and just threw things in there. 
Voila the after!  Sure not all the towels are white and I have crammed my heavy Indian blankets in there but overall I think it looks a gazillion times better - more importantly, it makes me feel SO MUCH BETTER.
Sure I had about a dozen 'what have I gotten myself into moments' and couldn't for the life of me figure out how I accumulated so many random flat sheets. But once that labeller came out, I was on fire and the magic started to happen. Excuse me now while I go to my linen closet and just stare at it.

Whoa, now that is an organized closet! I can identify with the "just shove everything behind the door" mentality. Definitely been there. Love your paisley sheets!

amazing!! I have towers of folded towels that are neatly folded, but some different sizes, and therefore turn into leaning toweLs of piza. hardy har har. :) Your closet looks great.

Looks great!! We have a bunch of random flat sheets too - we don't sleep with them so we end up using them as drop cloths when we paint!

First of all - GIANT CLOSET! I only wish!

Extra flat sheets to be turned into drop cloths are in the garage!

I just gave away sooo much stuff...pillows, kids toys, other extras that were shoved into the linen closet. I have been purging for months and I still find things to get rid of!

You did an amazing job with this reorganization Sundeep! Are you keeping the closet doors open 24/7 now to enjoy the view?
