Day # 4 & 8 Get organized - Coat Closet/Linen closest

I am doing an organization challenge over at A bowl full of lemons.

Day 7 was the linen closet and Day 8 was the coat closet. I don't own a coat closest but we do have a junk closet that shares space with some clothes and shelves that contain our linens. We have a linen closet but we don't use it because of the cats. :( So I decided to tackle this closet today and I was surprised that it didn't take me as long as I thought. That's because practically everything I touch is getting thrown into a box for goodwill. So far for 2011, I am up to 8 boxes.

The after portion..probably could still stand to purge some hangers but still it's an improvement!

And the after of the linen closet. I purged a lot of linens but mostly I just re-folded a bunch of them. My only complaint is that it's really hard to fold mattress covers and king sized sheets and make them look pretty. But it's the linen closet after all so who cares!


  1. You are so brave to do the before and after pictures ... I don't think I could.

  2. Shrug..I just assume that most people's closets look like mine at one time or another so they can probably relate. Even the person who is hosting the organizational challenge has some messy closets and drawers.

  3. I like that you have a "junk" closet! I know we have a closet sort of like that! I think you did great! It's a fun challenge!
