{five minute friday} Linen Closet Organizing Hack

We've been spending a lot of time in Breckenridge this summer, and it's a beautiful place to be! We are very fortunate that my parent's have a house there, and it provides a great place to escape to cooler weather and relaxed days.

But even when were are in Breckenridge on semi-vacation {both working remotely much of the time}, the day to day stuff still has to get done. Meals cooked, dishes cleaned, laundry washed. 

The other day, when I opened the linen closet to grab out the broom to sweep after the kids finished dinner, I realized that I should share my mom's super smart, five minute solution for making the very most of the limited space in that closet! 

At the house in Breck, the laundry room opens off of the mud room. My mom uses the cabinets above the washer and dryer, and below the sink, to store extra paper products and bottles of cleaning supplies.

The two doors on the left side are both closets. The one with the vented door is the utility closet, and the other is the linen closet.

You know that I am a big proponent of using every available space for storage and organization, and that is exactly what my mom has done here. She hung a 24 pocket shoe bag {affiliate link} on the back of the door to hold all of the small, misc supplies that don't require shelf space.

And she hung the shoe bag using the same damage-fee method that I showed you in my coat closet.

The pockets of the shoe bag are the perfect size for so many items... everything from cleaning supplies to household items that are always hard to find when you need them, like extension cords.

Everyone will have different items to store, but the things my mom is organizing in her back-of-door shoe bag include; cleaning rags, scrubbing brushes, Magic Erasers, Swiffer Dusters and replacements, rubber gloves, carpet cleaner, sponges and scouring pads, vacuum replacement bags and belts, Command strips, and extra shelf liner.

So if you could use a little extra storage space in your linen closet {and let's be honest, who couldn't?!}, pick up an inexpensive shoe bag and put the back of your door to work!
