Drawer Detail….

Posted By: Terri

I was helping a friend organize her wardrobe today and after we finished the closet portion of the style reboot we went into the “dreaded drawers.” She alerted me ahead of time that they were an absolute disaster-translation “a mess” BUT that has never stopped me from going in and getting things in proper order. I love a challenge and in most cases all you need do is follow a few simple steps and your drawers can be delightfully organized and detailed in no time.

Here are a few quick tips to getting your drawer detail done pronto:

  1. Start by taking EVERYTHING out of your drawers-yes..I do mean everything.
  2. Once everything is out of the drawers- start sorting what you do and  don’t wear. *Rule of thumb- if the item doesn’t look good, doesn’t fit, is damaged or you’ve never worn it( tell tale tags still hanging) -it’s time to discard,donate or give to someone that you know might use it.
  3. Next -fold items neatly into categories: Jeans, Shorts, workout wear,tee shirts, sweaters ,scarves-(I think you get the picture) etc.
  4. Now that all items are folded and into categories, place back into your  drawers with items you use most toward the top of your dresser.

If you’ re looking for a way to start your day with a little less stress how about…organizing your drawers. You know the drawers filled with your bras, panties, socks, and such. It’s an amazing and easy turn of events to have everything organized and in clear view so you can just pick and choose with the greatest of ease. Not only does this give your mind some much needed morning clarity but it will aid in getting  you ready and out the door in no time flat. Now I know there are some of you that say: ” BUT it’s so much easier just throwing it all in the same drawer and sorting through it everyday to eventually FIND what I’m looking for.” Right. Which bears asking the question: CAN you actually find ANYTHING? This whole organizing of the drawers by category doesn’t take oodles of your time to do in fact it will be time well spent and save you time in the long run. So here’s a few easy suggestions to get you going toward organizing the drawers of your dreams.

1. Organize by category

2. Within each category organize light to dark. O.K. I know this sounds like I’ve gone all ADD on you but trust me not only is it a time saver BUT it looks pretty.

3.To fold or not to fold THAT is the question: Fold panties. Bras lay flat and fold under straps. Socks-roll up. And…if you have any fold slips. 4. To step up your drawer style why not line them with contact paper,tissue paper., fabric or wallpaper remnants.

Spring Cleaning

March. The final hurrah of Winter and entrance into all things SPRING! Right about now you’re probably reassessing that notion of your New Year’s resolution to unclutter and thinking ahead to Spring cleaning. I know for many the thought of cleaning out anything can be overwhelming especially when it comes to our closets. We become so attached to everything we own and in particular our clothing because we associate a memory with what we were wearing. I am guilty as charged right along with you on all counts and can feel your pain when it comes to parting with a piece of attire that has special significance. I’m not about to give you some major tough love-if you absolutely have to keep that pair of jeans that no longer fit and haven’t for the last (ohhh say 20 years-we’re good) but more times than not we hold on to waaaaaay to much and our closet is more clutter than clothing. Bearing all that in mind I’m going to suggest taking some BABY STEPS on the task of a much needed Spring “closet” cleaning. Let’s start small with your lingerie drawers. This should be easy peasy and a great jump start to getting the rest of the process done.

Line up your bras light to dark.

Bras: Line up light to dark and for the love of God get rid of any bra that no longer fits, is showing wear and tear or has lost it’s shape. If your bra looks saggy so will you. No can do!

Tuck bra straps underneath bra to bring a more uniform look to your drawer.
