A quick little tip on how to create an organized t-shirt drawer that will allow you to see all your shirts lined up in a clear, orderly fashion which makes getting ready a breeze.
I’m a pretty organized person (which you can probably tell by now), not OCD level but rather tidy & efficient. Some of the methods I’ve created around the house I’ve never considered sharing here on the blog until someone else points it out & tells me how genius it is. That’s when the lightbulb goes off & I realize I should be sharing these little changes that can make a big impact on living a more organized life.
How many of you have a dreaded t-shirt drawer?
How many of you attempt to have a semi-organized drawer by stacking your shirts & then when you need the one on bottom it sends you into a downward spiral of t-shirt chaos?
I’ve been there & done all of that. It wasn’t until I implemented what I like to call is the “file folder system” of organizing my t-shirts that chaos went away & blissfulness entered. My t-shirts have been organized like this for 6-7 years now & there is no way I’d ever go back to stacking them.
A) No longer am I searching for the t-shirt that’s on the bottom of the pile.
B) Piles topple over. That’s no good.
C) You can fit 3-4 times more t-shirts using this method than by stacking your t-shirts.
Wearing a pair of pants that require a black t-shirt? Easy, just slide open the drawer and grab the black shirt like you’re picking out a file. I have it set up where the far left row are my tank tops and the other 2 rows are my t-shirts. These are primarily my workout shirts/tanks or a miscellaneous tee that doesn’t need to be taking up valuable closet real estate.
Just look at the stack below. These 7 shirts only amounted a 1/3 of the drawers depth, but imagine how much room this would take stacked up like this? Beginning to see how genius this is aren’t you?
I simply fold my t-shirts into a big square like we all do, but then I go ahead and fold them again in half to create a small rectangle. Simple place them in the drawer with the folded side up!
The far right hand side of the drawer (because I had space left over!) is used for my tank tops that go under tops. You know, the ones with the spaghetti straps and are pretty small in nature. I simply roll these up & stack them off to the side. Grab & go style at it’s finest!
Give my “file folder system” for an organized t-shirt drawer a try & let me know just how much you love it (or hate it). It really should be one easy change in how you fold your shirts and then how they’re placed into the drawer. I don’t know about you, but I’m always game for finding more ways to have space in my closet!
Keep Living a Stylized Life.
