How I Organize My Bed Linens

I showed How I Organize My Bathroom,
 and How I Organize My Drawers, so today
I'll show how I store and organize
my bed linens in the bedroom.
I have this huge armoire cabinet in the 
bedroom that is opposite the bed. I had
 been looking for one that, not only had lots
 of cabinet storage, but drawers as well.
 I could use drawers in place of a dresser. 
I finally found this one on Craigslist for $250
 and they threw in the 36" TV because they 
were getting a new one. A good deal!
This was just what I needed.
 It's all solid wood and very heavy. I plan to
 paint it or at least change the hardware as
 soon as I find something I a bargain.
 You've see how I filled the top with quilts
 in this post, Decorating With Quilts.
 The cabinet on the left side holds all the
 sheets and pillowcases.
 I moved them out of the bathroom closet 
because it made more sense to store them
 here in the bedroom,
 I don't think of these things all at once. 
Sometimes it's a 'duh' moment. 
Know what I mean?
 I keep the top sheets on one shelf and 
the fitted  bottom sheets below. I have
 lots of pillowcases. I like to mix and match. 
I fold everything in half then in thirds 
so that the folded smooth edge
 shows out and it keeps everything neat.
 I made a few lavender sachets for the linen
cabinet using my Mother's vintage hankies.
note: Loose lavender stored in a tennis can.
 A pile of loose lavender in the center.
 Tied into a bundle with ribbon.
This sweet little reminder sits on the shelf. 



  1. Great idea! All the pretty fabrics of the bedding look lovely in the cabinet. I like the lavender idea too. Thank you for sharing.

  2. I love it all - right down to the lavender sachets!

  3. Nicely organized! I love using lavender too. It smells so good.

    Have a great day.

  4. You are the only other person I have seen that stores her sheet sets separately like me...because sometimes I mix and match pattern with a that!

  5. I like that all of your sheets will mix and match so well. Such a tidy spot, too. Thanks for sharing with us.

  6. Watch this video, share it with as many people as you can. this changed how I perceived gender issues.

  7. Everything is so neat and perfectly folded...I needed that inspiration! And, the lavender in your mother's hankies is such a sweet and perfect touch! By the way, I found you through Dwellings, The Heart of Your Home- Amaze Me Monday.

  8. You certainly are little Ms Organizer! You armoire cabinet is gorgeous, what a find. The upstairs of the Charmer has NO storage, it's such a struggle to finds places for everything that needs a home.

  9. I need linen storage SO bad but no where to put it.Love the armoire, great idea. You are always so well organized. I am trying in this new space. It is a challenge:)

  10. Hi, I love how you store your linens. I wish I had an armoire like that. I can only keep two sets of linens at a time because I have no storage in my home. Congratulations on your feature too.
