Bonjour! I have a super quick and simple life hack for you this fine Tuesday!
We've been doing this for a long time in this house, though, to be honest, it's always my drawer that unravels the quickest! But, in my defence, I don't own a ton of clothes, and, messy or not, I can (almost) always find what I'm looking for.
This life hack is most important right now to my girls who (at 4 and 6 years old) want to pick out their own clothes. This gives them a super clear view of what they've got, and it therefore keeps the drawers from becoming disaster zones!
So, in the drawer pictured above you can see that instead of being stacked on top of one another, the clothes are folded an extra time and put in folded side up. That's it, that's the life hack! :)
Going one step further and putting colours together helps with being able to choose even faster, and dividing different "groups" is helpful too. This drawer has t-shirts on the far side, then a basket with undies, then long sleeve shirts.
Putting clothes like this also helps make it more obvious if you've got a little too much of one thing. The girls did have 9 pink long sleeve shirts, but I made them pick out the favourites, then we gave away the rest.
Anyway, that's all! I hope if you've never seen this idea before that you went, "ah ha!", and felt inspired to organize a crazy drawer in your house! If you think this is not that great and think I'm a goon, that's o.k. too. And, like I already mentioned, my dresser of clothes doesn't always stay looking this nice, so don't go thinking I'm miss perfect, tidy housekeeper. That will make me laugh until I cry. Until I cry!
As a Mommy side-note, this weekend in Belleville (to those who read this and live close by) there is going to be the Holiday Mama Market. The Mama Market is a mom geared vendor sale, and happens every three months in Belleville.
You can find their Facebook event page here
There will be at least 20 vendors there, including Bushel & A Peck and some of my baked goods! I will be bringing a variety of gluten free and regular cookies and squares, and also some cupcakes.
I'm really excited to be involved, though I am also having many sleepless nights worrying that I will mess something up or forget something important! This happens to me before these sorts of things!
Anyway, that's all for today! I bid you farewell!
