- Make up your mind to keep them clean and orderly. It may seem like that’s a given but without that mental determination, they will quickly digress.
- Make the hard choices. Just because you can still fit in those granny panties you’ve had since high school doesn’t mean you should hold on to them, especially since the only reason they still fit is because the elastic band busted. Make a deal with yourself—when you can clearly read this blog through your underwear, it’s time for a new pair.
- Buy some dividers. My bras, underwear, tights, camisoles, even sweaters, all stay folded and in their places because they have stability. I had no idea how this little trick would change my life. And I had no idea how many pairs of underwear had been kidnapped by my bras!
- Fold your clothes and put them away as soon as you come home. It only takes a couple of minutes to do this. But if you throw your clothes on the floor, or drape them over your treadmill, you will be less likely to put them away neatly when you’re rushing to clean up before your mother-in-law arrives.
Bottom line is this: it doesn’t take much time or effort to keep your dressers organized. But I can guarantee you—if you are neat and organized even in the secret aspects of your life—you will be amazed how much time you have to organize the rest of it.
