Use center shelves for things you use most often.  Use the higher and lower shelves for things you don’t need access to as often.

Place seasonal items/linens on an upper shelf, out of the way.  Keep what you use the most front and center.

Cleaning Supplies:  toss what you no longer use, discard anything that is leaking or torn, and anything that is over a year old.  Make a list of what you need to replace.

Put like items together.  Put items not used as frequently on a higher shelf.  Use bins or baskets to hold smaller items.

Top Shelves – Extra sheets, extra blankets, extra pillows, season linens (table clothes, etc.)

Middle Shelves (used the most) – Bath towels, washcloths, hand towels, baskets with small, frequently used items (sponges, brushes, etc.)

Lower shelves – paper towels, household supplies, toilet paper, trash bags, tissue, etc.

If you have small children, you may want to put cleaning supplies, trash bags, etc. on an upper shelf, out of their reach.
