Here is what I did to clean up our bathroom linen closet. I had to keep in mind placement of medicines and things like that for safety issues.
1 - I pulled everything off of the top shelf and worked my way down.
2 - I made separate piles for adult medicine, children's medicine, first aid, things that don't belong, and other toiletries.
3 - I emptied the baskets and sorted everything in its appropriate pile
4 - The top shelf is my extra house decorations so I just straightened those up
5 - I then went through all the medicines, throwing away any expired ones or empty boxes (that would be Josh's doing, ha!), and put them in the "adult medicine" or "children's medicine" baskets
6 - I cleared out a basket for all of our shampoo, conditioner and face wash. Another basket for Oral Hygiene, another little basket for samples (I use these on the road), and straightened the bottom shelf.
7 - I put all the things that don't belong in this closet AWAY!
