Organized Linen Closet

I am so much happier when my closets are organized.  So you can imagine how unhappy I was when I took a look at my linen closet and saw that it was somewhat of a disaster.
Here's problem number one - the closet is more than just a linen closet.  In addition to sheets and towels, it also is the home of photos and scrapbook supplies, bandaids, medicines, batteries etc.  It's a large walk-in closet that just needed to be organized.
I started by emptying out the closet and grouping like items together.

Here is the after.  There is nothing on the floor anymore.  I ended up relocating many of the older towels to the rag pile now.  

It is so much nicer to look at this closet now.  My kids linens are in my son's bathroom closet and each of their towels are in their own bathrooms.  This closet really only has the sheets for my bathroom and towels for guests.  

I hope you have a great weekend.  My plan for the weekend is to start my mud room renovation.  The wallpaper removal is hopefully tomorrow.  All members of the family will be enlisted for help.  Can't wait to share that with you.  Don't forget the Winter Blues Wednesday party link will be open until midnight tonight.
