Tips for Organizing Dresser Drawers

Does it seem like no matter what you do, your dresser drawers always end up disorganized? Are you finding clothing months after you initially looked for it? Why not try these organization suggestions and see what happens.

In the hustle and bustle of daily life you want to grab your clothes out of the drawer and go. Then, on laundry day, you drop your clean clothes in the drawer and promise you'll be back later to straighten up. Well that day is today! And here are a few tips for getting your dresser organized and keeping them that way. 
1. Every few months, take everything out of your drawers and refold them. It's not a very fun job but it will keep your drawers tidy and organized. Plus, it's a good time to pull out stained or torn clothing.

2. Rather than stacking T-shirts, try "filing" them. As you can see in the after photo, I filed my color T-shirts so I can easily assess which one I want. When items are stacked it's invariably the one of the bottom that you want and getting to that one involves disrupting all the others… and that's what leads to a messy drawer.

3. Use containers in your drawers to hold the small stuff. In my drawer I've used a few containers. There's a small bank where I stow my collection of wheat pennies and other old money, a jewelry box for watches and necklaces, plus a large bowl to hold my bow ties.

4. If you have a particularly large drawer, consider picking up dividers or organizers. You can find organizers at stores like The Container Store which will help you keep things tidy by creating sections in the drawers.

5. Keep your drawer smelling fresh by storing candles in it. Whether it's a new or even just a little nub of a mostly burned one, a candle placed in your drawer will keep your clothes smelling lovely. You could also use bars of soap.

How to Fit an Office into a Living Room

Sometimes there just doesn’t seem to be enough room to have a proper office in the house. And other times, we just can’t see the creative space that is readily available with just the addition of one or two pieces of furniture. If you’re looking to make an office area in your home, try the suggestions below.
Spreading bills out on the coffee table will only work for so long. Eventually, you may need to find a spot in your living room for a proper desk. Here are some location options to get your gears turning and inspire you to fit a real desk into your living room.
In Part of a Bookcase

Use a bookcase unit with adjustable shelves to configure a small workspace that packs a punch with storage. For extra credit, hide your office away behind curtains or a panel on rails.
You can imitate this by using two of our bookcases with a desk in between them.

Behind the Sofa
Tuck a long, narrow table behind your sofa for a place to keep your laptop and sort through paperwork. A chair or stool that can tuck completely under the desk will maximize your available space.
You can accomplish this with one of our sofa or console tables.

Behind a Partition

Use a screen, shutters or a curtain to keep your desk hidden from the rest of your living area.
You can accomplish this with one of our changing screens.
