Mine was a disaster. Besides beach towels and sheets, I have lots of table linens: runners, tablecloths, place mats and napkins. Stacks and stacks of them! I change the decor on both my dining room and kitchen tables at least monthly and sometimes weekly! Storing all of this has been a problem, and my hall linen closet was CRAMMED and messy! There were also 40 holiday dish towels!
I had to go to THREE Target stores, (one twice) to get what I needed: 9 large bins, 2 extra large bins, 2 baskets, two tubs, and an over-the door shoe hanging bag. It was worth it!
Every bin is labeled by season! Spring, Summer, Winter, 3 Fall and 3 Christmas! Baskets holding rolled beach towels are on the floor of the closet. Two large bins with extra blankets and throws are on top.
The shoe bag is brilliant! I now have an empty kitchen drawer and an empty drawer in my dining room hutch!
Yes, folks, I got rid of a few things too. Now everything is neat, and I can find what I want. The total counts are: 23 tablecloths, 22 runners, 37 sets of place mats, and 62 sets of napkins!
See what I started when I cleaned out my pantry?
