Under layer drawer
How to organize a drawer for your top under layer (the pieces ladies use as our base!)
We don't walk out of the house polished and pretty without some effort. I know I don't! I have to plan my outfits at least a few days in advance if not the night before. I make it really simple by having all my clothing pieces organized by type and color. I start with the pants and choose a shirt or maybe it's a tunic and leggings. No matter what something has to go underneath. Those bulge smoothing, keep me cool or keep me warm staples that women wear underneath an outfit to look nice and be comfortable. This organizing guide is for organizing day to day underclothes so you can put together an outfit quickly.
1. Start with an empty drawer.
Step 2. Add an organizing system to the drawer that meets your needs. I used two plastic bins from my local dollar store. I recycled the lids. If you chose this method, consider leaving the lids underneath the bin in the drawer in case you want to re-purpose them later. There's many options for drawer organizers depending on your storage space and budget. A great product out now are expandable drawer dividers that will fit most any drawers. The classic cloth version is also a good choice.
Step 3. Fold bras in half and add to one container. Keep like colors together.
Roll up any specialty items. In my case that's some Spanx.
Step 5. Fold and roll up cotton under shirts. I wear tank tops the most underneath my top layers but this works for shirts with sleeves as well. Lay the shirt flat and fold in half. Fold the arm pit area again so the width of the shirt is same all the way down.
Step 6. Fold the shirt a third of the way.
Step 7. Start at the top of the shirt and roll it up.
Step 9. Transfer the rolled up tanks or t-shirts to the second drawer organizer.
You did it! Enjoy being able to find what you need.
