25 Days to a More Organized You Day 8: The Linen Closet

How are you doing on staying organized this month? If you can, tackle these challenges every day, and I'm betting your home will feel so much more peaceful:

And now, here's the mess in our home that I tackled today (I have oodles of excuses for this disaster, but instead of my reasons I'll just show you the before and after pictures ~ yikes!)



During (yes, all of that was inside that one closet – craziness!)


And finally, the after ~ wooooooooohooooooo! 🙂



I donated a few blankets that we never use to our church's thrift store, put larger flannel sheet sets away in my kids closets, and stacked blankets that my kids could use for “fort-building” at the bottom of the closet so they can easily get them (and put them away!) when they're playing. Goodness, gracious, why do I settle for that mess when I could have something so much better?


So, go. 


30 minutes, a good sized trash bag for items to donate, and a little resolve to get it done. If I can do it, I know you can too!



Here's a sneak peek of this week's upcoming challenges so you can get ahead for the week (I had a few requests for these!)

  • Day 8: the refrigerator
  • Day 9: the freezer
  • Day 10: the spice cabinet
  • Day 11: the pantry (part one)
  • Day 12: the pantry (part two)

  1. Love it. Yesterday, I dropped off so much stuff at Catholic Charities that the whole back of the van was full. It felt so good. Than you for sharing this with us.
