Kon Mari Organizing Project #2: Drawers

Hopefully, you have seen my file organization and are here now to see my organized drawers!  I was in desperate need of some drawer organization particularly in my closet which is where I concentrated my time for this post.  I have spent many hours organizing my closet but the drawers have always been somewhat of a mess.

To start, I pulled everything out of my drawers and began to sort.  Here is a before of my sock drawer which was overflowing.

Next, after sorting and getting rid of old, worn or not needed items, I cleaned out the dust from the drawer and set up my newly purchased inserts.  These are a set of drawer organizers that I purchased from IKEA.  They open up and can be configured in a variety of ways.

The next step was to fold the items in the way that was recommended by the Kon Mari book.

Step 1: Lay flat on top of each other

Step 2: Fold in half

Step 3: One more fold to make a small square

Step 4: Insert into drawer vertically like little cards

This seems time-consuming, but in reality, it did not take more than an extra couple of minutes total and the result was fantastic.

Not only did it create more room, but you can see everything you have in your drawer.  It is neat and organized.

I tackled my sock and underwear/ bra drawers.  I'll spare you from seeing my undies, but I feel like I'm shopping at VS every time I open my drawer now.  What a great feeling!

This made a huge difference and I can't wait to tackle additional drawers in the same way!

To life feeling like home!
