Well, I’ve finally had it. After opening the linen closet a zillion times this week and dodging the avalanche-o-crap, it was time to organize. Plus I knew you would all be amused at the junk that’s stashed in there.
Have you noticed that there isn’t room for towels anywhere? They usually get crammed into the lower right section. Yes, you can click on the photo to zoom. Maybe it will make you feel better about the state of your linen closet.
The upper right corner had some relics from Papa’s school days (and two bowling trophies! w00t!). One of his sculptures was hiding back in the corner–I moved it to the front room so everyone can admire it.
Here are some of the other miscellaneous goodies I found: a pile of framed photos from 2003-2006;
a burned-out husk of a candle (WHAT was I going to do with that?!?);
and a pile of expired medicines that need to be safely disposed of.
After shooing Papa and the children away for an hour or so, this is what I ended up with.
Not bad, huh? My sewing basket fits on the second shelf, all my essential oils are organized, and there’s no more risk of avalanche! Here’s hoping it stays this way for a while.
