Organize your drawers

           I am an organization freak and want to share with you several findings that keep me sane.
            Last June we bought two cabinets with drawers, one for me, and one for my DD. Cabinets hold more stuff than cupboards, if you didn't know, try them! I was delighted! Now I have a lot of space to organize our clothes! But even a lot of space doesn't mean organized clothes!
            I folded clothes as stores make it - fold sleeves inside, and fold it once widthwise.This way all your clothes lie one on another, occupy a lot of space and you can't see it all at once. I thought, there has to be a better solution. I found one!

Wow, I actually have FREE space in drawers now(!!!!!!!!)
Well, there is another problem - where to find these drawer dividers? Here is a cheap and quick DIY method

          If you don't like to MAKE anything with your own hands, then what are you doing on my blog? Kidding. There is also another solution, even simplier - boxes. Shoe boxes, or any kind of boxes that looks good. They are sturdier and come in all sizes, just grab one and put it inside the drawer!
        Now I'm happy!

Here is one way to hold your bras

...and this way you can fold a bra that don't have cups. if you have a lot of push-up bras, as I am, this won't work for you because cups will get wrinkled. With them, I just fold straps inside, don't fold cups at all!

And here is the best book ever on overall organization - "Organizing from the Inside Out, Second Edition: The Foolproof System For Organizing Your Home, Your Office and Your Life" by Julie Morgenstern
