This linen closet organization project was a long time coming! Would you believe it took me nearly a month to complete this bathroom organization task? You know how a lot of people “turn over a new leaf” in January? We make resolutions, and start purging. A friend told me about a challenge, and I jumped in with both feet! Did you know that I’ve been in this house for 43 years? A person can collect a lot of STUFF in that amount of time. I’ve been playing a game with friends. You can read it about it here: #MinsGame. I’ll be sharing the post on Facebook today in honor of completing a month of purging.
I’m embarrassed to tell you that I’ve spent all month getting rid of all of my items from the bathroom! I’m starting again this month concentrating on the kitchen. Anyway, if you want more details, leave a comment or write me an email.
Dollar Tree Baskets
On with today’s Dollar Store Design Squad challenge! Storage solutions can be so expensive. Many stores had cute baskets on sale this month because everyone is getting organized. BUT! I needed a lot of baskets and storage options, so I headed to the Dollar Tree. Actually, I went to three different Dollar Tree stores to see what I could find.

Assortment of basket storage options
Since I didn’t really know that I was going to need, I bought a very random selection of baskets, bins and totes from the Dollar Tree Stores. Keep in mind, each of these items was one dollar. The exception of course are the 2 and 3 packs of small baskets. This pile of baskets and bins would have cost me a fortune at a department store. As you can see, it's pretty easy to collect items for your dollar store closet organization.
Linen Closet Chaos
This photo was taken on January 9, which means I had already tossed (or donated) over 40 items. I am blessed with huge areas of storage, more than one person needs. The more room a person has, the more junk they may collect.
Using Dollar Store Baskets in the Linen Closet
Can you believe this is the same space? I really love the assorted bins I purchased. Each has it’s own purpose. After a month of decluttering and purging, I feel so much better!
How to secure shelf liner
First, I cleaned the shelves so I could put in the shelf liner. Because it’s just a lay-in liner, I used double sided tape to hold it in place. Small pieces were placed all over the shelf, then the liner was applied.
Real-life linen closet
Keeping it real folks! This is real life. Random towels and linens. Granted the plastic drawer systems could be replaced. Years ago I read about keeping pajamas and undies in the bathroom. Since I have the room, that’s where I keep them. Makes it so handy when I jump in the shower.
I’m so happy this bathroom linen closet organization project is complete! The dollar store is the perfect option to get your closet organized on a budget. Now, it’s on to the kitchen, starting today.
Because I didn't have room for large cleaning items, I made a Between the Studs Broom Closet in the bathroom.
