Each of our children have their own dresser. In each dresser is an "underwear drawer." Of course, this provides a catch-all place to put underwear, socks, undershirts, bathing suits, and pajamas. Big Sister's drawer needed some significant help.
It seemed each day she couldn't find a pair of socks despite the fact that I bought her new socks this summer. Her drawer was in need of some simple organization.
Using shallow shoe boxes, we created three zones for her sock drawer.
On the left- Socks and stockings
Middle- Undershirts, bathing suits, and underwear
On the right- Pajamas
Since we first organized the dresser drawer, we determined that she has enough pajamas to warrant their own drawer. This opens up the right side of her drawer for belts and other little accessories.
The best part is Big Sister can maintain the drawer herself. She puts away her own clothes most of the time, and she can find what she needs without wrecking the drawer. It was a simple ten minute organizational fix.
