TNO's Tips & Tricks 14 - Dress up your drawers

Recently, I saw a pin on Pinterest about a way to keep dresser drawers more organized.  It was such a simple, simple idea, but has proved to be hugely easy for me when I'm putting away clothes as well as looking for clothing in our drawers.   

Since I've switched over our drawers to this new organizational method, I can say that I have not once spent any time rifling through my drawers trying to find the right shirt or pants.  I always know exactly where everything is and have no problem quickly grabbing the right item right away.  Want to know how?  Check it out below:

To put it simply, all you need to do is fold your clothes horizontally instead of vertically.  Instead of stacking your clothing on top of each other, stack it so that you can see each piece of clothing horizontally, like I have DH's t-shirts below:

As you can tell from the picture above, it is way easier to see exactly what you have in your drawers when things are folded horizontally.  Instead of pulling every shirt out of your drawer to find the one for which you've been looking, you can simply grab the one you want.

I did this with shirts, tank tops, and even my pajama pants.  Side note: I have WAY too many pairs of pajama pants.  Like, I could start a pajama pant store... oops.

If you have particularly deep drawers, you may have to double layer, but this way would allow you to place the most used or most worn items on top.  Little man's drawers tend to be pretty deep, so when I reorganize his dresser, I'll probably do something like make one layer on the bottom of long pants and then do shorts on top, or long sleeve shirts on the bottom and short sleeves on top.  When it gets cool again, I can just switch the layers again.

This trick is so simple, so quick, so easy.  Try it out and let me know what you think!
