When you make a small effort to keep the inside of your chest of drawers neat and orderly, everyday routines can become a little more pleasant. Here are a few ideas for how to organize a chest of drawers, so that you can always find exactly the clothes and accessories that you need – rather than waste time rummaging around.
You can simplify your storage by deciding on a specific role for each of the drawers. For example, you might put only items of a certain color in each one. Or, you could arrange the chest of drawers by type of clothing or activity. Simply look at what you have and how you dress to figure out what works best.
Inside a drawer, you can add clothes boxes or organizers to keep items ordered neatly and to avoid a messy jumble. You can use as few or as many as you need. To rearrange, replace or remove the contents of a drawer whenever you need also becomes a whole lot easier.
For the best use of drawer space, you can roll up or fold your clothes and accessories then put them side by side. This way, items are easier to see and grab than if you simply stack them one on top of the other. Rolled-up clothes are also a handy way to divide a drawer between you and a child or partner.
With trays or small boxes for jewellery and accessories, the inside of your chest of drawers can be as pretty as it is practical. Contained and kept in place this way, you’ll always know where to find your little accoutrements – and, just as importantly, where to put them back again later.
How to organize a chest of drawers that holds other miscellaneous items? Drawer inserts and sturdy storage boxes – with or without lids – are perfect for bringing order to stationery, paperwork, USB cables and must-haves. A drawer organized in such a way becomes a helpful home for your odds and ends.
