The last few months have been so full of planning for wedding festivities, colds/flus, vacations, cleaning and endless LAUNDRY, that I wasn’t blogging as much as I would have liked. I’m glad to be back to sharing with you all. Jumping right back into this with the below on a quick and easy organization project I did to my hallway linen closet. I’ve looked at closet remodels on Pinterest and have often come across pictures that are too perfect, too staged, too labeled, and far too expensive. This is my real remodel project. I’m not going to spend $200 + or label every single shelf and basket. This project was completed for under $65. It’s functional and authentic.

Since we moved into this house (almost a year ago – wow, that flew by!) Our linen closet has been a dark hole that we have been stuffing our towels, toiletries, and extra blankets into. It took us forever to find anything in there and we had to dig through mounds of stuff. Often times, an avalanche of towels and blankets would come tumbling out upon opening the door, just like you see in cartoons. Not exaggerating. See pictures below. So, I decided it was time to revamp this closet once and for all. Having two little kids that always need me for something, I can’t afford to waste even a few minutes of the day, digging through a dark, messy closet.

My main struggle with organizing this closet was where to store all of our towels? When folding them, they became thick and took up so much space that I could only fit a few towels on each shelf. These new shelf dividers allow me to roll the towels, creating space for more on each shelf. We have about 10 bath towels, 15 hand towels, and 20 wash clothes. They now ALL fit on ONE shelf! I can even have Eloise grab me a towel if I need her help and she knows exactly where they are.

The touch lights have made so much difference. Since this is a hallway closet, it doesn’t get much natural light. I can finally see in the closet! I even put one on a lower shelf for easy access for Eloise. She always helps me to fold the towels or grab washcloths for Violette’s baths, so she is so happy to turn on “her own” light in the closet.

The wicker baskets were extras that I found around my house. If you’re anything like me, you grab a new basket or bin anytime you visit Target, Marshalls, Home Goods, with no real idea what you’ll do with it. Now I put them to good use.
AFTER
The over-the-door storage racks add just enough extra space for random items that we need frequently – toilet paper, diapers, wipes, nursing pads, etc.
AFTER
All of our toiletries are now neatly organized in clear bins and the white baskets. Everything is clearly visible and easy to grab. This whole project took about 1 hour to complete and has made my life so much easier.

All items can be ordered on Amazon via the links below. Hope these tips and links help you to finally get your messy closets organized too, without spending a lot of time and money!
