Linen closet decluttered!

Ready for a super fun post full of pretty pictures?  If you are, you are reading the wrong blog.  If you are looking for motivation to declutter your messy linen closet - look no further!

I have slowly been working at tossing, purging, decluttering our closets.  It is not fun.  It is messy.  It is boring.  But, it must be done.

Today, I tackled the linen closet in our master bathroom.  This is where we keep everything - medicine, toiletries, towels, sunscreens, kids hair products.  If you need something - you can probably find it in there.   Well, now you can because it is organized.

This is what it looked like before:

Gives me a headache!

I took everything out and tossed what we didn't use and grouped together what I was going to keep.  I purchased a few bins from the dollar section at Target a few weeks ago.  Don't tell Chad.  The green metal bins were $3 each... even though they are in the dollar section.  Why, Target?  Why?

I wiped down the shelves.

And I put everything back.  Here is the organized after:

Much better!  Let's be honest.  Projects like this totally suck.  Being knee deep in expired medications and half empty bottles of years old sunscreen is not fun.  But, in the end, it is worth it.  I am trying really hard this month to gain some control on the messes in my house.  So get ready for a few more posts like this one.  Sorry!

Let's look again.


What does your linen closet look like?  Is it messy and disorganized?  Go clean it!
