Let’s organize our dresser drawers!
I learned this tip a year or two ago at an organizing session at a ladies retreat. And I think I went home that night and reorganized my t-shirt drawer.
I used to fold them and then stack them in piles. But of course you couldn’t get to the bottom of the pile without messing up the pile and you couldn’t see what was in the pile either. So the drawer stayed organized in piles for like 2 days.
Until I learned about “filing” your clothes instead of stacking them! You can fit MORE clothes in the drawer, see everything in the drawer at one glance, and get anything out of the drawer without messing anything up!
I fold my t-shirts in half longwise. Then in half and in half again. And then “file them” with the design up so you can see it.
And I use this same method with pajama pants, camis, long sleeve shirts…you can do it with just about anything you put in drawers.
Do your dresser drawers need some help? How do you organize your dresser drawers? Stack or FILE?
