10 Minute Organising Challenge: Linen Cupboard

May 24, 2015


I know you must be thinking how can it only be 10 minutes in the linen cupboard! Remember, small steps!

In 10 minutes you can make a world of difference in your linen cupboard.


Select your most used item. This is usually the most disorganised. For me it would be towels. However I am sure most of us are thinking about those pesky fitted sheets.


Either one will be fine. Find every towel or sheet (which every you have chosen) from every stored crevice in your house.


Check the depth of your shelves that the items sit on. Take a moment to figure out a type of fold that sits the best on that shelf. Personally I like to make sure I have no edges showing at the front however you can make yours however you like. Think about the other people in your home- make it easy for everyone to see how it is done and follow along.


A great video on how to fold a fitted sheet is here- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Z5k9nWcuFc In this video she makes and excellent point about how folding a sheet actually gives you more space.


So, if you have not been folding your selected items in the past, I can assume that now you have taken all of that item out of your cupboard, you have got a nice space to work with.


Pair the top and fitted sheet together and then stack them nicely back onto the space you have created.


Donate any older sheets or ones you are not using anymore.


Now that they are back in the cupboard you can see that not only is more space created but you can actually find what you are looking for. And my special favorite is that sheets look ironed when you put them on the bed :)
