If you’ve put in the time and effort to line your linen closet with cedar, you probably have an eye for decorating and organization. Maybe you like the look of cedar and feel that it adds elegance to your home. If the benefits of cedar are what initially drew you to the project, you probably realized soon after installation how neat it made your closet look.
Some of us are better at organizing than others, but everyone can keep sheets and towels folded, stacked, and on their respective shelves. If your linen closet has fallen by the wayside recently and become a confused mess, there’s still hope! If your problem is lack of space, a few new folding techniques should help to alleviate the clutter.
Towels take up a lot of space, especially when not folded properly. If you like to display your towels a few at a time in the bathroom, cut down on time by folding them attractively for storage in your linen closet. Martha Stewart has a neat trick for symmetrical towel folding on her website, here. Your helpful tool? A cutting board.
Extra sheets are another big space stealer in linen closets. How many of us really know how to fold a fitted sheet? If you’re of the opinion that fitted sheets should be wound into a tight ball and shoved into a corner of the shelf, take a moment to check out another tutorial at the Martha Stewart website. This one has photos and video to help. With a little practice, your fitted sheet can be neatly folded with the rest of the set and stored in a matching pillowcase for easy access.
