Anyway, I was a bit disappointed when she said no, she didn't. The only thing is that she said her closet floors aren't super organized since it's just shoes. Please, I wish the floor of my closet was my problem.
But no, my "Monica Closet" or should I say closets, since there's more than one, are my bedroom drawers. They are a disaster! The rest of our bedroom is neat, sometimes there's a t-shirt on the floor that didn't make it in the hamper or a lost sock, but other than that, all clean!
We've lived in our town home for almost 3 years and I've seriously lost count as to how many times I've organized my drawers. I think the problem is (and it pains me to admit this) I have too many clothes. Although I'll never tell Mr. Pal that since I have him convinced I have nothing to wear ever, but I just can't cram any more clothes into my drawers.
I think the problem is that I'm going about my drawer organization all wrong. My usual way is to fold a pile of shirts like this and stick them in the drawer.
|Sorry the picture is sideways. For some reason I couldn't get it to flip around. ugh!|
Time to get a new plan. So, here's what I did. I emptied each drawer at a time so I could sort my tops according to keep, donate, or toss. Then it was time to fill up the drawers again.
Notice something different? Yup, I changed how I organized and folded my tops. I did the usual fold as before then folded that in half and stood my tops up. This way I can see every single shirt I own and don't have to rummage through and make a mess!
I only organized three drawers, which are the ones that get the messiest. My t-shirts, long sleeves and tank tops. After all that organizing, I had a pretty decent donate pile. :)
To fix that problem I dumped all the socks out and organized them by color.
No much guess if the socks match his suit!
I also organized his undershirt/sock drawer. This drawer is fairly neat to begin with, but I just wanted it to be a calmer sight when the drawer opened.
So that was how I spent my morning! Now, the test is really to see how long Mr. Pal & I can keep these drawers clean!
