Sick to DEATH of the linen closet falling out on you every time you open the door???? ME TOO! I was tired of literally opening the door and watching sheets crash down on me, sorting through fitted sheet after fitted sheet only to find that the size I needed was in the laundry and SICK of 1,000 pillowcases, but never a pair! Anybody relate?
So I went crazy organize on it and here is the result: http://www.anestforallseasons.com/2012/10/linen-closet.html

Elaine on Apr 24, 2016Over the years, I've done (& liked) both - (a) storing top & bottom sheets in the cases and (b) labeling the shelves. My linen closet still looked a mess with all the "extras" (i.e. sheets I only used for the cottage, odd sheets used when grandkids slept over on the floor, summer & winter weight blankets and so on. The linen closet was also very tiny. I finally decided to store the extra sheet set in each respective bedroom - in either a dresser drawer or on a shelf in each bedroom's closet. Another tip ... if you have sturdy closet doors (bi-folds won't work), mount a towel bar on the inside of the closet door to hang extra blankets.
Irene on May 30, 2016The best suggestion for sheets that I ever saw was to put the folded sheets & one pillowcase inside the 2nd pillowcase, fold the ends under, and store on a shelf. No mess, no clutter, no falling apart, no searching for matching pillowcases. It works beautifully, and makes so much sense.
