Tuesday's Tips and Tricks-- Linen closet

I really thought that this was a simple trick that no one would be interested in but my sister insists that I should post it because she would have never thought of it...

So: here we go...

I used to dream that my linen closet looked like this:













I have even at times worked hard and got it close (minus all the matching) and it lasted until someone pulled one thing out of the closet.. So, I have given up that dream and gone for more practical methods. One of those methods is storing all the pieces of one sheet set inside one of the pillowcases. Then, I can reach in there and grab that one set without worrying about jumbling up everything that sits on top.. So, there you go. Pretty simple. But, effective, at least for me.

And no, I am not showing you a picture of my linen closet..

Blessing,
Dana

Seriously, you are one of the nifftiest (is that even a word? well, it is now) mommas I know!! What a neat tip. I have never even thought about that, but it's a great idea.

Although I have never even dreamed that my linen closet could even resemble that picture, I did think this was a great idea! Love you Denise

I love this idea! It is so very simple, yet I think most of us have never thought of it! I'm so glad your sister talked you into sharing it! I'm following you from MBC! :)

Thank GOODNESS that isn't a picture of your linen closet!! You almost lost me completely... you would have been filed under "totally intimidating" and my insecure self just couldn't handle it!

Dana said...

LOL Hannah.. I'm laughing to keep from crying. I seriously have one of those files.. I mean, in my head... There are seriously people I have never had to my house because theirs is so perfect. I would love to be able to get over that.. Anyway, I no worries.. I so don't belong in that file. That's Martha Stewart's closet. And from what I've heard, her closets are really pretty but she's not very nice..

wow, after that "there are some people I never invite to my house" comment I'm glad I've been invited over!
Do like the pillowcase trick, never had thought of it.

Very bright! Just so you know, it can be terribly freeing to publish a picture of your imperfection. I feel like I do it daily!
