It's been a 'this and that' and a 'here and there' few days. I've been doing a little of 'this' over 'here' and a little of 'that' over 'there', and not all that much has been getting done as I haven't really sunk my teeth into any one big project.
But I am very happy with my little successes here and there.
I came across a wonderful tip the other day for organizing clothes in dresser drawers while visiting my friend Jill . She posted about how she came across this organization method on the Wilkinson Quintuplet blog and she shared this wonderful information and I thought I'd give it a try!
Jill, a very big THANK YOU! I love the results! So far I've only tackled Jayden's dresser (a little of the 'this' over 'here') but I do plan on organizing my closets and dresser drawers the same way sometime soon.
Here are Jayden's dresser drawer pictures before and after:
Tee shirts and shorts before ~
Tee shirts and shorts after ~
Now, I did put aside a few tee shirts and polo shirts that Jayden had outgrown to donate, but not many, and still look how much more room there is! And I can easily see which tee shirt and pair of shorts I'd want without having to dig to the bottom of the drawer to find them! I love it!
Sweatpants, sweatshirts, and extra tee shirt drawer before ~
Sweatpants, sweatshirts, and extra tees after ~
Again, only two pair of sweatpants were eliminated and still there is plenty of room!
Pajama drawer before ~
Pajama drawer after ~ (only one pair of pajamas was eliminated!)
Jayden's sock drawer before ~
Sock drawer after ~ (I did get rid of lots of socks though!)
Jayden's 'drawers' drawer before ~
Jayden's boxers and briefs after ~
I took advantage of the extra space in Jayden's pajama drawer and his sweatsuit drawer to clean up the messy hooks in the hall (before picture below).
I used the extra room in the pajama drawer to store Jayden's bathing suits and water shirts ~
And I used the extra space in the sweatsuit drawer to store Jayden's sweat jackets too ~
And now there is more room to pass by in the hallway as there are only caps, backpacks, and my bags left hanging on the hooks ~
You wouldn't think such a small project would give me such a big sense of accomplishment, but it does! It doesn't take much to make me happy!
Next I'm onto a small bathroom organizing project.
