Time To Get Organized: Challenge #8

Sitting in your closet for months, years, waiting to be used. Yet, nope ... just doesn't happen. Your old towels and sheets are "too good" to throw out, yet you just cannot part with them.

So they sit ... and sit ...
in your linen closet waiting for the day you will need 6 blue bath towels sets, even though your bathroom is now green. Then there are the double size sheet sets you still have, alas now you have a queen size bed. Yet there is nothing wrong with the double sheet set except they do not fit your bed.
Today's organizing project:
Your Linen Closet.


Remove towels or sheets that are not being used

Reward: Kick back, enjoy your favorite beverage
and think about the last time you laughed REALLY hard
(if its been too long, go rent "The Hangover.")

My favorite place to donate linens to are your local animal shelter. They are always in need of towels, sheets, blankets, rugs ... heck anything to wipe up a mess or let the animals cuddle up into for a nap.

By organizing your linen closet, you are going to end up with a TON more room. Instead of blankets tumbling out everytime you open the door to grab a fresh towel, everything will stay in place. Plus, you'll only have your freshest and softest towels for available for use.

One week left in National Get Organized month and hopefully you are beginning to feel a bit lighter around your home, the air seems easier to breathe and you are able to relax and enjoy yourself more.

Here's a list of our 2010 organizing challenges to date:
#1 Organizing Your Inbox
#2 Organizing Your Medicine Cabinet
#3 Organizing Your Pantry
#4 Organizing Your Work Area
#5 Organizing Your Magazines
#6 Organizing Your Car
#7 Organizing Scavenger Hunt

What made you laugh REALLY hard?

I just found you blog and it is just what I needed. So many times I am simply overwhelmed by all the clutter that I do not know where to begin. Well, you are now in my Google Reader. Having a simple task to accomplish each day is a God send for me. Thank you for these posts! I have already mentioned your blog on my Facebook page, and I promised to give updates on my progress.
God Bless you!

I did it. I actually organized the linen closet today! (At least the one upstairs.) The experience made it the first post on my new blog.
