This tape is clear and works perfect for applying labels to plastic bins. It can be written on and comes off easily with no sticky residue. I, personally, love the Scotch brand shipping tape.
Normally, I print labels out on the computer to coordinate with the theme of what I am organizing. I then cut them out and overlay the tape on top of them to adhere them to the bins. A permanent marker will also work great (just write directly on the tape, then you can remove).
When it comes to organizing a linen closet / or bathroom cabinet, you don’t need to spend a lot of money! Look around your home and see how you can utilize items that you have on hand.
The tools I used were:
- Shelf Liner
- Storage Bins
- Printed labels (I made these on the computer)
- Shipping Tape
- Lazy Susan (You can also make your own – tutorial to come)
- Wall Hook
- Wrapping Paper
I want my linen closet to look as neat as possible without having to spend too much effort making sure all my sheets and towels were lined up perfect. I hate folding my sheets! No matter how hard I try I just can’t fold my bottom mattress sheet the right way.
Even Martha Stewart couldn’t help me with this one. I read tutorials and watched videos, but it still didn’t look neat. So, instead I decided to camouflage them. I found these nice fabric open bins from the Container Store that included label pockets.
These are great because I can neatly store my sheets and towels and still gain easy access to them from the top. I also purchased a shelf liner to coordinate with the bins.
*Cleaning Note: When storing towels and sheets always rotate them so the freshly washed ones are at the bottom and the existing are at the top of the pile to be used. This will help them stay fresh!
On the inside door of the closet I had an existing iron holder and to the bottom of it I attached a baby hanger I already had with clips to hold an additional bath mat! This is what my closet now looks like:
For the cabinet under my sink I used separate storage draws and a “Lazy Susan” to have easy access to all hair and bath products.
I put a sticky hook on the inside of my cabinet to store the hair dryer.
For the medicine cabinet I used wrapping paper to line the back wall and small bins that fit inside to keep toiletries neat.
These simple items that you may already have on hand can make a huge difference in transforming a small space. Use bins and containers you may already have.
Check out your local dollar stores, or even try to make your own. You can always wrap shoe boxes or product boxes with pretty wrapping paper.
