Clever ideas to organise your drawers and closet

Hello DIYers! One of the websites i follow Diply.com shared an interesting article about organising  one of the most difficult places to keep neat i.e. the closet!

I thought it would be a good share to give us ideas of what we can do with those clothing items that never seem to get organised. Warning, long post ahead!

The article shared 19 ways to organise your closet and drawers

I picked out 13 of my favourite  ways. Here we go;

3. Sort your weekly wardrobe in advance

This is simply amazing!!! My underwear drawer is always a mess and i spend several minutes every  morning searching for matching pieces.

This i have always applied and it works! You also get to know which tops/t-shirts you haven’t worn in a while.

9. Use an ornament box to organize your socks

If you do not have wine boxes, you could consider using the six packs used to sell beers in our local supermarkets. Of course this limits what shoe size and type of shoe that can go in.

11. Use ice cube trays to organize your jewelry

12. Keep your gadgets organized and charged in your nightstand
