maximize your drawer space

Do you have limited drawer space for your clothes and accessories? Are you looking for a way to maximize the space you do have without eliminating your wardrobe?

Socks and Undies:

Get a divider for your socks and underwear drawers. For years and years I just folded socks over themselves and threw them in a drawer. If figured they couldn't take up any less space than that. Then about 4 years ago, I decided to try some plastic drawer dividers that you can find at nearly any clothing store or supermarket (Wal-Mart and Target carry them!). What a difference it made! Not only can I fit all the items in my drawer without jamming; I can see all the colors and styles and putting them away takes half as long! I actually gained one whole drawer by using dividers.


Stand your shirts on end. If you have deep enough drawers, fold your shirts in half one more time and stand them up in the drawer. That way you can see them all and get at the one you want without digging through a pile. This works great for shorts and jeans too.

Another idea is to use shoe boxes to divide up your drawers. You can cut them to fit the height of your drawer and keep scarves and other accessories neatly organized!
