I have been working at organizing and eliminating some of my linens. Between tablecloths, placemats, napkins and napkin rings, I have a lot! I would LOVE to have a large walk-in closet that could be dedicated to just these items. But, I don’t so, I have to work them into a space that I can use and easily access.
This past year, I have to admit, I had been very lazy when it comes to organizing table linens so, I decided I needed to work on this area. I have been doing it a little at a time.
First linen area to be dealt with is the napkins.
A mess! This was a part of the crazy jumble that had napkins in it (along with a lot of other things as you can see).
A trip to the Dollar Tree to get storage bags.
After a couple of hours of sitting in the middle of the floor with all my cloth napkins strewn about, I matched them all up and each style went onto it’s own bag.
After they were all bagged up, they were sorted by color. I started off planning on sorting each color set of napkins into the shoe size clear containers. But, after getting going I changed my mind.
Imagine my surprise when I discovered that I must have an obsession with blue! I actually had to break up the blues into “subcategories”!
I have two of these rolling drawer things that now are the new home to all my cloth napkins.
I just need to label the drawers now.
Out of all the table linens available, fun napkins are my favorite. You can use them easier than tablecloths in my opinion. Here is the scary thing…..I donated about 50% of my napkins and this is what is left! Whoa!! LOL
How do you organize your table linens?
