Organizing Men's Underwear Drawer
If you've been trying to figure out how to organize men’s underwear drawer catastrophes, you’re either a man that is sick and tired of not being able to quickly find a pair of clean underwear when you need them or a significant other that is sick and tired of dealing with the mess that a man’s underwear drawer can become!
Luckily, this isn't the difficult and daunting task that it seems to be on the surface. In fact, there are a number of organizing men’s underwear drawer solutions that you can take advantage of in just a few moments time to get you on the right track to hassle free underwear storage and selection!
Obviously, there are a couple of things you’ll need to tackle early in the game and a couple of things you’ll need to ingrain as a habit, but the information included below is going to give you all of the “inside information” you need to perfect the process of organizing men’s underwear drawer problems.
Let’s dive right in!
First things first, clean house before you do any organization whatsoever
Before you start to attempt any organization whatsoever, you need to separate the not so hot underwear from the rest of the herd.
As all men understand (and as all people that have loved or lived with a man are well aware of), underwear will be worn until it is nothing more than an elastic waistband and a few threads hanging from their waist – and even then it’s going to be a little bit on the difficult side to toss out!
Obviously, there’s almost no reason whatsoever to even begin attempting the process of organizing men’s underwear drawer problems until you have gotten rid of these not so hot underwear options. Don’t be shy about pitching “so-so” pieces of underwear directly into the trash and replacing them with brand-new options, as you’ll feel a lot better in your organization will go a lot smoother.
Forget folding, organizing a men’s underwear drawer is all about rolling
Secondly, you’re going to want to abandon the old standard of folding up men’s underwear into what looks like a rather over-sized pocket square.
No, there’s nothing wrong with folding your underwear as far as keeping the fabric fresh and “healthy”, but you are going to be losing a lot of extra space with that kind of approach.
Regardless of whether or not your underwear drawer is a little bit on the smaller size where space is a premium or if you have all the space in the world to take up, rolling your underwear into a tight little tube is going to make sure that you maximize all of the space available.
On top of that, it’s going to be a whole lot quicker than folding your underwear. All you have to do is full them once in half (the long way) and then start rolling from one end until it is all rolled out. From there, you just stick it in the drawer and you are good to go!
Color-code for easy organization
Next, you’re going to want to consider color coding the organization of your underwear drawer just so that it’s pleasant to look at and easy to see which types of washes you need to do in the near future.
For instance, if you have a mixture of black underwear, white underwear, and multicolored underwear, you’re going to want to keep them separate and in their own little “cubby” so that it’s easier to grab the color that you need for the day without messing up the rest of your organization.
You’ll also be able to tell that you’re running a little bit low on white underwear, so it might be time to run a load of whites through the washing machine without risking the colors running and ruining your underwear in the process.
Invest in an organization product or solution that fits your specific needs
When it comes to mastering organizing men’s underwear drawer issues, you might need to call in for reinforcements and purchase an organization product that fits right into your dresser drawer.
Sure, this may be a little bit on the “overkill” side of the fence, but if you are really struggling to keep your things neat and organized this just might be exactly what you’re missing! With so many different products out there, it’s never going to be a challenge to find the right ones for your particular needs.
