Home Organizing Challenge Week 10: Linen Closet

March 8, 2015


14 Week Organizing Challenge


It’s week 10 of the 2015 Home Organizing Challenge. This week we will be concentrating on purging & organizing the linen closet.  Try your best to purge as much as you can.  If you haven’t used something in the last year, think about letting it go.  Clear up some space & organize. 🙂

If this is your first time participating in the challenge, welcome! Each week, you will receive a new challenge & you will have 7 days to complete it. If you are not subscribed to my blog & want reminders for the weekly challenges, you can sign up here. The first thing you need to do is print out your 14 Week Schedule. You can hang it on your fridge and check it off as you go. Print it out here.

    LOL – since I’m single and don’t have many overnight guests I have a linen shelf. I tend to just use the same set of sheets over and over again. I’ll wash them, dry them and put them back on my bed. The same with my bath towels. I have one other set of sheets but that’s it. My one bedroom condo doesn’t really afford me space for extra blankets, etc. which I guess makes it easy to not accumulate too many things in this dept. 😉
