Drawer Redo 2

After the successful re-org of my top drawer, I spent some of the weekend doing some more organizing of drawers.  I found a lot of sites on-line advising folding and "filing" your clothes so decided to give it a try.

I was able to do 4 drawers: a sweater drawer, 2 tshirt drawers and the pj/yoga drawer.

With the sweaters, they were too thick to fold flat and "file" so I had to roll them suitcase style:

The T-shirts are thin enough to fold flat:

The T-shirts would probably have to be rolled if you don't have that many because they only stay up if there are lots to pack together.

Sorry for the fuzzy pictures - the camera just did not want to cooperate today.

Results so far are positive.  I like being able to see everything at a glance and it will probably make getting dressed less stressful.  I even found a whole giant black garbage bagful of clothes to donate!

  1. I got a new dresser last spring and have organized both my long-sleeved and short-sleeved t-shirts this way. Like you, I'm still looking for a satisfactory way to do the sweaters.

    1. Let me know if you have a better way to organize sweaters, the roll method works but seems to take up more space.

  3. You know, I always pack my suitcases this way, but never thought to do the same in my drawers! Excellent idea, I'm going to try it.

    1. Hey CJ: The best part is that you can see everything vs the regular way where you only see the top layer.
