Happy New Year Friends !
I think I may have said that in a earlier post but, it never hurts to say it again !
Anyways… I am back along with a group of other talented blogger friends to bring you #10DaysOfOrganizing ! Each one of the awesome ladies have organized some room in their lovely homes and I am learning so much from each of them. It really is an honored to be included among such talent !
OK !! So when the ladies came to me about a project, I had to stop at picking just one thing to do ! You all know how I LOVE to organize stuff !! So after talking with the hubs about what we could do and after him bringing me back to reality amidst all of my wild dreams, we decided to do out Master Bathroom Linen Closet !
What is that you say?!? You have a closet in your master? Why yes we do and I love it ! I believe the previous owners, opted for the closet in the bathroom instead of the stand alone shower and let me tell you… Way better choice ! You see, in our last house, we had a stand alone shower and I HATED, I mean HATED cleaning that thing !! So this is a better option for us !
SORRY FOR THE HORRIBLE PHOTO BELOW !!
As with any new build, it came with the wire racks. Now there is nothing wrong with those ! As a matter of fact, they are all over the house ! However, in our bathroom, I knew I wanted more of a spa feel. You know, somewhere that I could retreat to when I got ready to do my night self-care !
So, I told the hubs what I wanted and he built it for me !! I love that man !!
I will have for you a tutorial on how to build the shelves once he gives me the deets !
In our bathroom, I knew my space had to be organized. After all, I love to organize and I love an organized space.
Today I wanted to give you a few tips to keep your linen closet or any closet that you may have organized. So here goes !
1. Access the items that you have.
I am a coupon girl ! I think I’ve told you that before. I buy lots of soap, detergent, toothpaste etc. I normally try my best to keep everything organized, but sometimes the kids come in and don’t really respect your need and love for organization. So sometimes things can get messed up. Accessing what you have causes you to one not over buy and two allows you to know what you need to put in your organization plan. I knew between my hubs and I, we had a lot of soap and body wash, so I needed to make allowances for that.
2. Have a space for everything
Meaning once you access your needs, map out a plan that causes you to have space for all the items you’ll be keeping. For example, I have a few towels lol !! I knew that I wanted to have my own towels in my closet, separate from the main linen closet in the hall. I also knew that I had a ton of soap and body wash, but I didn’t want to keep all that stuff in our closet. So I kept what we would use and out the rest in the hall linen closet. I also picked up boxes and this cute hamper from Michael’s because they are having an amazing sale !!
The boxes hold our towels, hand and face clothes perfectly. They also hold our toiletry items as well !! I just love how this closet turned out !
3. If you’re not happy with it, change it !
If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I am a firm believer of if you don’t love it you shouldn’t have it in your home. Like I mentioned before, I don’t mind the wire shelves, but I didn’t want them in our master, so we changed it ! I’m so glad that we did !!
4. Make it yours and do what works for you !
I am an organizing junkie !! It makes my OCD heart glad to see a beautiful & compartmentalized space !! However, all the boxes and trays may not be your thing and that’s perfectly OK! I do believe in a streamlined designed, but you may like things in a different type of order! That’s cool too ! The main thing is for your space to be clean, organized and totally 100% you ! As Home Goods would say, “Make Home Yours” !! You’ll never go wrong with that, I promise !!
Well I hope you enjoyed our little master bathroom linen closet ! I for one love how it turned out and I think my daughters do too because they used it before we did !! The nerve lol !!!
Tell me some ways that you have organized in your homes… I’d love to hear from you !
