My linen closet has been in serious need of attention. I love organizing, so figuring out a solution for the piles of sheets was a joyful challenge. This is what I came up with:
I love it! Rolling sheets and towels actually takes up less space, and it also looks neater than piling up different sized squares on top of each other. I ran out of ribbon (those little spools from JoAnn’s don’t go very far), but when I get some more I’ll be finishing up with the rest of my sheets and also my towels. I also made little labels to clearly mark the size and used mini clothes pins to attach them.
In the past I’ve been staunchly opposed to impractical organizational solutions like rolling up sheets, tying them with ribbon, and labeling them. When somebody needs a fresh set of sheets, who knows where the ribbon will end up! I’ve finally changed my sorry ways! I would rather have our linen closet look neat and attractive. I can deal with rerolling and tying them if it means my linen closet looks more organized.
