One of my organizing goals for January was to revamp my drawers! Yes, they did look this horrible! Yikes! Talk about a nightmare when I was looking for something specific. A drawer like this can almost be rendered useless - it's entirely impractical. If you are suffering from a similar drawer disorder, allow me to share some tips with you that made my drawer space functional and organized (and it didn't even take much time).
Tip #1: It is best to have only one layer of clothing per drawer. This is a rule that I NEVER lived by until I saw it on an organizer's blog a while back. I started to apply this practice to my underwear drawer and then my t-shirt drawer. Now, I've applied it to almost every drawer. Why? Keeping only one layer allows me to see everything in the drawer when I open it. I don't have to do digging to the bottom to find my pink cami.
Tip #2: The roll effect - To achieve the one layer rule, use the roll folding effect and neatly stack each article of clothing from front to back.
I "rolled" my camis in a tri-fold with the spaghetti straps neatly tucked away on the interior.
Tip #3: Organize according to color and style. As you can see from the picture above, I put all of my whites together, then blacks, then followed with the colored camis. Finally, I put my ribbed tanks on the far right.
Tip #4: Get rid of what you don't need. Anytime you dump a drawer, be sure not to put anything back that you don't wear. De-clutter by getting rid of what you do not need or do not wear!
The finished product is a functional drawer that you won't dread opening!
