You guys – work has been insane. The holidays, then work travel, then an insane work load has made me a little on edge – and I find myself stress cleaning everything. The break room kitchen at work, a handle of one of our pots that could be just…a little…cleaner….
So I thought I would share a little trick that is making me so happy lately. I don’t know about you, but my linen closet has always stressed me out a bit. How can I make it so the sheets and towels aren’t constantly toppling into each other and making me crazy? Everything always seems to mush together and there’s always one pillowcase unaccounted for.
Then a few months back, we bought new sheets. And I thought, aw, look at how nice these sheets look all folded in this plastic thing made specifically for sheets. Then I thought, this should never end. They should always look this neat tucked in this plastic pouch. So I started collecting them.
Okay, I’m just gonna stop you right there and say I KNOW. This is a complete grandma moment. Once you are hoarding plastic packaging for some future but not yet realized purpose, you may need to check in and reevaluate things. HOWEVER. This turned out to be awesome.
(Sorry for the ugly pictures, but this is some behind the scenes important shit.)
They all stack so nicely. And you don’t have to be like Martha Stewart about folding them to be able to fit them in there, either. You just throw the pillow cases in there with everything, and then every set has it’s own space and they are separate and neat and I love it.
(Anthony calls these the “wifi sheets”.)
We have a curtain over our linen closet, so I’m not at all concerned with how things look aesthetically – I just want to open it and be like YES this shit is clean and organized. Grandma style or not.
But maybe you came up with a way to do this in a non-grandma way? If so, please share!
I have so many things to tell you all and so little time! Since when has work actually taken up my full-time schedule? Rude.
So, more to come – but please, in the meantime, tell me what organizational trick has been making you feel happy lately!
