How To Organize Your Linen Closet The Frugal And Beautiful Way

Day seventeen is here!  Welcome to Organize your home in 31 Days the Frugal Way.  I had a lot of fun organizing my linen closet and all with a zero budget.  VERY FRUGAL!

Today, let’s talk about how to organize your linen closet the frugal and beautiful way.  The only items I needed for this project was paint, a wicker basket, metal baskets and of course my towels and linens.   I purchased nothing!  The wicker basket and metal baskets were garbage picked…yep!  I always have my eyes on the curb as I drive around town.  Admittedly, I have embarrassed my kids numerous times but I have a saved our family a ton of money.  I find that the gently used items work great in my 1903 farmhouse!


Look at the wallpaper in my linen closet.  After some research, I believe it is from the 1920’s.  All the closets were wallpapered in my home.  How charming!


  • First, let’s be clear about what needs to be in a linen closet.  I find that the first step is always to stop and think how you want and need to use the storage space.  I use my linen closet to store blankets, towels, pillows, toilet paper and tissues.  That is it.

  • Take everything out of the closet.

  • Simplify and group like items.  Blankets in one pile, towels in another, washcloths in another.

  • Neatly fold and replace the items back in the closet.

  • Finally, add some scent.  Use essential oils in a hidden cotton ball or make your own linen spray using 1 ounce (2 tablespoons) witch hazel or vodka, 10 drops lavender essential oil and 3 ounces (6 tablespoons) water.


Have fun folding and enjoy the process.  Making things pretty and organized is a joy and you will feel wonderful when you complete yet another challenge in Organize Your Home in 31 Days the Frugal Way!
