So, I'm sure you've heard about Marie Kondo, Japanese Organizing Consultant and Author of The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up. This best-selling guide provides detailed guidance for determining which items in your house "spark joy" (and which don't), helping you clear the clutter and enjoy the unique magic of a tidy home. While I have yet to read the whole book, I have watched a few YouTube videos based on this concept, including her video on folding a perfect underwear drawer. In this quick blog post, I'll share my before and after photos (no, not of my underwear drawer!), but my socks, of which she included in this short video:
So, my husband's t-shirt drawer was overflowing with shirts! I got tired of seeing the ones that didn't fit sitting on top of my dresser and our closet is just way to small to add his shirts to it, so when I found this post with a simple how-to fold t-shirts and organize them in the dresser drawer, I had to try it! This took me less than ten minutes and I'm extremely satisfied with the results, so I had to share! Here are my before and afters:
His work shirts are all lined up on the left and the rest to the right (not by color since I know it will be a waste of time as he will just place them anywhere in the future)! Oh, wait a minute, I'm the one who folds his laundry and puts it away! Oh well, it really doesn't matter... all I care about is the drawer closes and all his shirts will be inside of it vs. on top of the dresser! Besides, with folding and setting them on top of each other in the drawer, you have to sift through them to pick a shirt. This way, you can see each and every one of them with one glance!
Here is a link to that post I was talking about if you need the how-to-fold instructions:
Depending on the size of your drawers, you may have to fold a little differently as I had to.
