ORGANIZATION: The Linen Closet Day #4

Day #4 The Linen Closet
(21 Day Organation Challege @ A Bowl full of Lemons):
My linen closet holds more of my bathroom toiletries, towels, rugs, misc then actual linens. This is due to very little storage in our main bathroom. It definitely needed a makeover & with the help of some Sterilite containers, this challenge went very smoothly! I just love these little totes...they are so handy with a handle to just grab what you need. I have them in several rooms in my house. Especially the kids rooms for smaller toy storage! You can get them at Walmart, Target or any other super store.

Here are my BEFORE'S:

As you can see I took advantage of the FREE label printables that "A Bowl Full of Lemons" had posted a few days back courtesy of Kim over at a It's a Crafty Life. The moment I saw those circle labels, I knew I had to use them!!!!
