organize me monday #8

A couple weeks ago I re-organized our linen closet & made up some labels using some left over journalling cards from my Project Life kit.

Here's how it looks now.......

Our linen closet is in our bathroom, which is handy for storing towels & having extra room on the shelves to keep our extra products & such. It helps us keep only minimum items on our counter.

The basket on the left holds: hot & cold packs & hot water bottles.

The basket in the middle holds the hair cutting kit & a little travel case I stick in my bag for hospital stays (when my kids were born or times my daughter was in the hospital).

In the plastic containers- one has travel-size items, the one behind has extra floss, toothpaste, and razor blades. And then on top is first aid stuff.

On the next shelf is 2 wicker baskets that hold my hair products, make-up, hair stuff, lotions, sunscreen, etc. As well as my husband's shaving cream, aftershave, etc.

On the right side I have a white vase that holds brushes & combs.
Then there's a little candle holder from Ikea that's perfect for bobby pins.
And finally, a sea shell bowl thing where the Mr's razors reside.

I was thinking about rolling the towels, but I'm not sure if that will take up more room or not.
Ideally I would love to have baskets for face cloths & hand towels, maybe in the future.

At the bottom of the closet, I have 2 good-sized containers for all my kids' bath toys.

This is the system that works for our family right now.
And my husband can vouch for the fact that I change things quite often :)
I am always trying to improve the organization in our home to best suit our needs.
