Earlier this week I showed you a couple organizing revamps I’ve been working on this week – today I’m going to share a great way to organize clothes in drawers for easy access. Maybe you all do this already, but if not give it a whirl. It’s a great trick that won’t take any more time, but it’s sure to keep you a little saner in the clothing storage department. Not only is it easier for your kids to see and grab their clothes, but this is a space saver too. Want to try it? Next time you’re putting laundry away, follow these easy steps.
- Take everything out of the drawer
- Sort the clothes by clothing type or pant type
- If you fold pants in half, fold them in thirds so they fit
- Put the clothes away ‘standing up’ instead of flat
Here are two ideas:
My daughter has a smaller dresser with three drawers – so the middle drawer holds all pants, skirts, and shorts. Socks, tights, undies in the top drawer and pajamas in the bottom drawer.
My son has a larger dresser with more drawers so he gets a separate drawer for pants and shorts.
This method works great for pajamas too:
Want to see how I fold two piece pajama sets to save space and keep them easy access for the kiddos?
So how about you? Any decluttering or organizing projects this week?
