Everything but the Skeletons (Revisited)

Mission accomplished!  I spent the good part of yesterday afternoon taming our linen closet.  I have to say, it looks great.  I didn't go out and buy any special organizing stuff for this one.  I just worked with a few random boxes and containers I had on hand. 

I learned that people do not need an endless supply of cleaning rags (grease-spotted shirts make great rags!).  This is all the more true for those who rarely clean.  I promptly threw out an entire garbage bag worth of rags.

Originally I thought this closet would take me days to get through.  But once the contents were spread out across my bed (I should have thought that through), I realized this was a one-day deal.  In and out.  And here it is before and after.



  1. Well done sister! BTW I love your shoe shelving. It is sturdy and looks nice unlike the pathetic wire thingy, which cathes on heels and tounges and frustrates me to the point that I just hurl my shoes at it, that I have. Sorry I had a moment there. Seriously though I get so upset at all of ill-designed housekeeping tools. Perhaps that's one of the million reasons I hate to clean:)

  2. It is good shoe shelving. It was there when we moved in. It's just a series of three wooden shelves stacked on top of one another. They're not even nailed together. You should get Stephen on that asap.
