How to Organize Your Dresser a Makeover
1. Decide What to Keep
Start by emptying all the drawers. This will help you understand what you’re working with start you off with a blank slate.
Over time, dressers accumulate articles of clothing you no longer use, so take the time to pick out pieces to donate or give away. Anything you haven’t worn in over a year should go.
2. Categorize Each Space
To make items easy to find later, dedicate each drawer to a specific category of clothing, such as undergarments or shirts. You can use drawer dividers or small boxes to separate colors, brands, or fabrics.
How you group your clothes is up to you, just keep each type separated. Just make sure whatever you use to separate your clothing won’t collapse or slide around.
3. Use All of the Space to Your Advantage
Once you declutter and categorize your drawers, you might end up with extra space inside and on top of your dresser. Use an extra drawer to rotate seasonal clothes, or the space on top to hold jewelry and collectibles.
What makes these storage ideas useful is that they are flexible. If a category or divider doesn’t have enough items, create a different one. You can start over as many times as it takes to get your furniture organized just right.
