Organize your bed and bath supplies in a jiffy by cleaning up your linen closet with these tips and tricks. These storage-savvy secrets will help make sure every item in your closet in its right place.

Clean and Tidy

Prevent mountains of towels, blankets, and sheets from piling up with a neat and organized linen closet. Adjustable shelving is the foundation for neat organization in this hall linen closet. The repositionable brackets make it easy to reconfigure shelves for optimal storage.

At the Door

Use an over-the-door towel rack to keep table linens neat and ready for entertaining at a moment’s notice. Over-the-door storage is not only convenient and accessible, but it also allows for extra space on the shelves and throughout the closet.

Label Your Linens

Keep linens organized based on where you plan to use them. Sort sheets for each bedroom in the house into their own storage bins so finding the right set is always easy. Keep towels ready to grab in a hurry by tying a complete set of towels together with a ribbon. When guests arrive, your linens will be presentation ready and quickly within reach.

Sheet Organizer

Stop rummaging through the closet to find all the sheets in a set. Instead, drop a rubber-coated wire pan rack into a soft-sided storage box to stand multiple sheet sets side by side. Fold a pillow case around each set for an easy grab.

Closet Workspace

Create a space to sort, fold, and mend linens with everything you need within reach. Start by attaching a deep shelf at waist height to serve as a work space. Attach a battery-power puck light underneath a higher shelf to light up the space. On a nearby shelf, use stacking boxes with tiered compartments to keep sewing tools, extra bathroom supplies, and any other knick-knacks you may need in an organized spot.

Start fresh with a decluttered closet. It'€™s easy with these smart organization ideas!

Easy Ways to Organize Your Closet

Restore order in your closet with these must-know storage and organization secrets.

Tray It

Keep small items organized with trays that are typically used to sort small office supplies. Create your own go-to spa kit by filling trays with pampering supplies, ready to pull out whenever you're in need of a retreatlike getaway.

Travel Bag

Assemble travel bags filled with small-size toiletries in plastic zippered bags so you're always ready to go. Prepare one for each family member, personalized with his or her favorites.

Treat Your Guests

Welcome guests with a thoroughly stocked hospitality kit. A canvas china-storage box designed for small coffee cups includes dividers that neatly compartmentalize if-you-left-it-at-home toiletries, as well as some pampering extras.

At the Ready

Stock a cleaning caddy with favorite supplies, paper towels, and cleaning tools so you're ready to go for cleaning day or a quick tidy-up. Toss toilet paper in a handled tote and periodically carry the tote throughout the house to restock each bathroom.

Store It Right

Gather shoe polish, rags, and extra shoelaces in a plastic storage box with a latch to keep these stainable items away from clean linens. Use a lockbox to store medicines and first aid supplies. Store the box on a high shelf and hide the key from curious little hands.

Sleep Tight

Air out feather and down pillows or comforters in breathable fabric bags. Protect synthetic and down-alternative pillows from dust and allergens by stashing them in zippered plastic pouches.
