One thing that you guys may not know about me is that I'm a huge DIYer and I love organizing. I love the satisfaction of having everything aligned and grouped together for easy access.
Recently, I had this huge urge to organize my underwear drawer. I don't have any "before" photos, but basically, it was a huge mess. Just a big pile of underwear floating around in a drawer.
I'm pretty sure most girls would be able to relate, but I have a ton of pairs of underwear. My drawer was just a mess, and I found that I always reached for the same pairs over and over again because it made things just so much easier than having to dig through and find a pair.
I decided to Google "drawer organization tips" and found a lot of useful information, but nothing as far as what to organize them in. A lot of people mentioned using shoe boxes or the like, but I felt I wouldn't be able to make the most use out of my space.
And then, it hit me. I had some foam board I had left over from a Chemistry project, and I decided to make drawer dividers out of them.
All you need is foam board (I purchased mine at Michaels for $3.99 CDN for a 20x30x3/16 inch piece), a ruler to measure out your pieces and a hot glue gun. Relatively simple and inexpensive.
I did not glue the dividers into my drawers, I used the hot glue gun to glue the dividers to each other. I just made sure the dividers were the right length so that they would just slide right in my drawer and stay in place on their own - this makes things easier incase I want to change any of my arrangments.
There was no real method to my madness, I just kind of did whatever, but I really liked how everything turned out. I ended up making 6 compartments, which I then divided my different types of underwear in to. I also went through everything and threw out any stretched out/faded underwear, or anything that I knew I wouldn't wear. That helped cut a lot of clutter.
I usually fold my underwear, and that made everything easier for me. Now, if I want to wear a certain style (ie: bikini, thong, etc..) of underwear, I can easily find it and pull it out. Also, when I'm finished my laundry and ready to put everything back, I put my freshly laundered underwear in the BACK of the pile, and I always reach for underwear from the front of the pile. This ensures that I actually wear/rotate everyone, instead of going for the same ones all the time.
I didn't just stop with my underwear drawer, but I decided to go through and organize a few of my other drawers as well, here are some photos to show you different ways to divide your drawers:
I wanted to share this with you guys to show you how easy it is to organize your clothing. After a while, I would seriously open up my drawers every now and then and awe over how everything was so neat, organized and easily accessible. There's no more rooting around in a rage trying to find someone. Everything has it's own place.
It's also made putting back laundry easier as well! I hope this was helpful to some of you, and I'd love to how you guys organize your dressers!
