Inside my linen cupboard

It is not unusual to be left feeling inadequate when you spend some time on social media. It can make you feel fat and frumpy, a shit-house cook, a hot mess in most areas of your life and bad at decorating your kids bedroom. And on the odd occasion you come across something so contrived, it makes you want to punch yourself in the throat.

Isn’t it beautiful? Isn’t it bullshit? Beautiful bullshit. Hooray for Pinterest for its inspirational living. There are so many photos of beautiful linen cupboards on Pinterest, its enough to make you want to grab your label maker and label everything. Including the label maker itself.

Lets take a look at mine. It is a small, wooden built in cupboard in the hall. I actually don’t think it is too bad! The little collection of baby blankets in the top left corner has not been touched for years. The middle shelf is my vast collection of pillow cases with a few hand towels thrown in for good measure. Next shelf has bath towels and one scrunched up sheet. The one below that is a concophony of single, double, queen and king sized sheets.

Because I am naturally a nosy person, I put the call out to WoogsWorld readers so share their own dirty little secrets that is their linen cupboard.

Here is Liani’s. It is quite something hey!

Michelle holds an impressive amount of linen cupboard real estate….

Marsha is my sprit animal.

Natalie doesn’t own a linen cupboard, but keeps her sheets in sets under the bed. TEN OUT OF TEN on the improvisation.

Occasionally I get a strange urge to sort out my linen. I will pull it all out and start to sort stuff. Then, once the novelty well and truly wears off, I direct my attention to more important things, like googling symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome because I have a sore arm. From folding. Then Mr. Woog will come home from work, cast his eye over the scenario and enquire as to whether we have been robbed.

WoogsWorld’s favourite male reader Andrew has a double cupboard and uses the space well.

Jennifer! Stop it!

I suspect that Allira would be able to locate something fairly quickly.

Shavaun is renovating! Viva the Linen Couch!

Jan used to run a B&B and took my challenge very seriously. She went to B&B school to learn about these things.

Do you enjoy these exposé posts? Do you like snooping too? Sometimes when I go to open houses and if no-one is around I will totally look inside the bathroom cupboards.

Amanda! Well, she was inspired by Baby Mac’s How to fold a fitted sheet phenomena that was the social media craze that she started in 2016.

Hooray for Shannon! I was starting to feel a little sloppy myself…

And finally my favourite. Carolyn I love the fact that you keep a kangaroo on the top of yours.

Thanks to everyone who was willing to share their approach to organising linen. I love that we are all such diverse creatures. I am sorry that I could not include all of them, but I invite you to share yours in the comment section below, so we can judge you too.

Have you ever been hit by a linen avalanche?

Do you fold, or roll, shove and slam the door quickly?
