My main objective was to make sure that the linen closet only contains linens, medicine, and some cleaning supplies.
So, I set aside some time, and dove right in. (Start to finish, with lots of interruptions from the littles, it took about 90 minutes.) First, I scoured the rest of my house to find empty/extra containers to store stuff in. I find that this is helpful at the beginning of an organizing project, because you have to have SOME PLACE to put stuff as you begin to pull things out.
