Linen Closet

Here is the evidence of how organized I am capable of being when I put my mind to it. I may never conquer the kitchen counter, but I won the battle on this linen closet.

Each shelf is labeled with the size of sheets kept there, so they don't get mixed up. I figured out how to fold fitted sheets a few years ago so they lay pretty flat. I don't know how to explain it very well, but I tuck the elastic corners into each other. (There are a ton of videos on this on YouTube.) Once the fitted & flat sheets are folded, I put them inside the matching pillowcase, and fold the case over so I have one big flat rectangle. That's what you're seeing in this picture: bed sheet bundles that have everything in one package. (Along with a towel shelf and blanket shelf.) Saves me a lot of time, and it was also a good excuse to get rid of all of the random single bedsheets that my mother has given me over the years. (I have no explanation for this.)

cracking up on the random single bedsheets your mom has given you.
Its funny. My mom keeps giving me cookie sheets. Aparantly, she doesn't appreciate well seasoned cookie sheets.

That my friend, is quite a fab-o idea! All organized inside a pillowcase!! I love it! I'd label everything if I thought Mario wouldn't divorce me for my OCD about everything having it's spot!! :)
