Simple Linen Storage in a Small Home
If you live in a small home it can be challenging to find places to put everything. Something I’ve struggled with is linens. The home we are in now is medium sized but Roy and I have a lot of stuff due to our businesses and hobbies and I don’t have a closet I can devote to linens. They typically end up being stuffed in various drawers. But I finally found a way to store mine that works great and still keeps them handy. Plus it utilized typically unused space under the bed. Bonus!
- Inexpensive clear top zippered bags that will fit under a bed.
You can find these storage bags many places but I got mine on Amazon for $6.49 for a set of two. I bought two sets so I’d have four, two to place under each side of my bed. They are PERFECT for sheets, pillow cases, shams and will even hold small blankets if needed and provide quick and easy access. These are not super heavy duty but they work wonderfully. Fill them full but don’t overload them.
UPDATE OCTOBER 2016: Well these did not last as well as I had hoped. I replaced them with the following Ziz Home Anti-Mold Breathable Home Organizer which is sturdy, and a good price. I can fit a LOT into it and it fills up one side of the bed. So take the ideas below and use them in this larger and stronger bag!

Organize them well. I used one for sheets, one for pillowcases & shams etc.
They fit perfectly under the bed. When you need a sheet just quickly slide one out and unzip it. After you grab what you want they easily slide back under. It’s about as easy as opening a drawer to grab something.
