Works for Me Wednesday

#1) This is a tip that I heard from someone else so I can't take credit for it. But, it works so well!

Rolled Towels:

If you are as limited as we are in cabinet space in your laundry room or closets, try this: Instead of folding your towels the traditional way, try folding them twice and then rolling them. This will provide you so much more space than when you stack the folded towels on top of each other.

I can now fit double the amount of towels in my closet as I could before.

#2) When you fold your bed linens, stack the pieces to each set inside of each other. Fold the pillowcases and put them into your folded fitted sheet, then that goes into your folded top sheet. It looks much neater, saves space and you won't be wondering where all of the pieces are when you go to change your bed.

Good tip - this is exactly what I had to do in our old house (we moved about 4 months ago).

I do this when packing, but hadn't thought of it for the laundry...

Great idea! At our other house, I have a huge linen closet with space on top. I put a basket of rolled towels up high. They looked pretty and stored well (until they ended up all covered in dust - ha).

What a great idea! I love the look of rolled towels in stores, just never thought of doing it at home.

I will have to try this. I have a big closet...but I also have a lot of towels!

Martie said...

Great ideas! I am always looking for better ways to organize my linens and towels. Thanks a bunch!

I used to do that with my kids clothes in their drawers and packing in suitcases, too.
