Tame That Mess in Your Dresser Drawers

I wish my dresser looked like this.

I would like to share with you guys that I’m one of the most organized people in the world, but I would be lying.  Given that fact, I have to resort to finding my tips from other sources.  A great one I found is Apartment Therapy.  An article that popped out to me is one on organizing dresser drawers.  It stuck out because I know that when I go in mine to pick out clothes I experience the inevitable stress that comes with not being able to find anything to wear.  It’s not because I have no clothes; it’s because I would be lucky to find the bottom of the pile, never mind finding that pair of socks I need.

Now that I’ve been honest about my (lack of) organizing ability, here are some good tips from Apartment Therapy to get you on the right track:

  • Don’t stack your t-shirts.  Filing them makes it easier to see and take out the shirts you have without rifling through everything.
  • Take everything out of the drawers every few months and do some refolding.  It’s something I hate doing but it’s necessary if I want to wear my clothes straight out of the drawer without as much ironing.  Let’s just say the iron and I don’t get along.
  • Hold the small stuff in containers, then put those in the drawers.  These can hold anything from jewelry to change and ties.
