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!
My Linen Storage
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.

We have been doing this for years. Works great! We have one for the kids (twin) sheets, and one for our queen sheets.
I so need to get some of these, we bought our house totally spacing that there is no closet of any sort to store our linens.
Great idea! Thanks for sharing at the Home Matters Party!
You’re very welcome. Thanks for visiting Wendy!
This is a great idea and it will fit under my bed, thanks for sharing!!
You’re very welcome Cheryl. Thanks for visiting!
Thanks for sharing on craft schooling Sunday! here in Israel where most people live in small spaces with large families, beds are made with a drawer under the bed (if there isn’t another bed to pull out) and my bed is actually the kind that you pull up to reveal a huge amount of storage space underneath, namely the size of a box spring. all the best!
You’re so very welcome. Thanks for visiting from across the ocean! Sounds like making the most of space is common there. Ü
Great idea! I could really use some of these not only for storing linen but for storing my sweaters as well. Thanks for sharing!
Your so welcome. Thanks for stopping by Linda!
This is such a great idea! Our house is small and has no space for a linen closet, so I have been trying to figure out where to store our linens. This is perfect! Thanks for the idea!
Your very welcome Celeste. I’m so happy you found it helpful!
