This can take a long time if you try to clean out and reorganize every drawer you have in one sitting, however if you do a few drawers at a time like I have been doing, you can finish a drawer in 10 to 15 min max. The picture above is the wonderful organized,(you can see everything picture.)
As you can see from my before pictures, or maybe not, I used to roll my clothing and put them in the drawer all rolled up. It seemed though that this was not the most effective way to keep the clothes sorted or organized. I have to admit that I tried the whole roll the clothing thing in the first place because it was what was suggested you do if you are packing a suitcase. I thought, “if they get twice as much in a suitcase then I should get twice as much in my dresser drawer’s.” Well, boy was I wrong. The only thing that was happening was that I was forgetting what I owned because I couldn’t see the bottom layer of rolled clothing.
As you can see by what was pulled out of my drawer that it was so tight a fit that the bottom drawer opened when I opened the drawer above it. Whew, were those drawers stuffed beyond belief. I knew what I needed to do. Reorganize back to my old system.
My old system and now my new system, consists of folding the clothing in a flat manner then stacking the piles of clothing. After you have a pile stacked about the depth of your drawer, carefully pick up the pile and lay it down in the drawer. The stacks should resemble Pringle’s in the container. You can easily see all the items you own and easily take out and even put back the items just as easily. You can see how nice and flat I was able to fold the shirt and pants together.
This is a picture of all the clothing ( Pajamas to be exact,) that came out of the drawer and the first and last picture’s are what the drawer’s look like now. Nice and neatly folded, where I can find what I want, when I want it. Not only that I can actually open and close my drawer’s now with ease.
I do have to admit that I did thin out my pajamas a bit before I put them back in the drawer. I organized 2 drawer’s today. I have to pat myself on the back because I am now one step closer to organizing my house!
