Pinteresting T-shirt Drawers

It's really rainy and gloomy here in Michigan, especially after Spring Break in the warm, sunny south. I feel like I have been doing laundry for 2 days straight to get caught up! Unfortunately, all the shorts, tanks and T-shirts need to be left in the drawers until spring arrives here. As I was trying to stuff my kids clothes back into their drawers, I remembered a pin for storing T's in a drawer. I apparently hadn't pinned it, but a quick search showed a few options. The idea is to fold your T's in a way that you can stack them front to back, with the logo showing. I'll just share my pictures, that are pretty self explanatory.

Before of the top drawer with tanks and camis.

After with the tanks and camis on the right. I left a couple stacks of plain short and long sleeve tops that didn't fold well to fit the new system. That's OK, they are nicer and I don't want them too wrinkled.

T-shirt drawer before. I swear, every event in a teens social life involves another new T-shirt. Someday when she's done wearing them, I will make her T-shirt quilt. BTW, this is pretty much what it looks like every morning after she leaves for school. Both drawers open, with everything all messed up from trying to get a shirt from the bottom of the pile!

T-shirt drawer after!  I had to switch a couple of things around, because the drawer the T's were in was too shallow for the folded shirts. This is so awesome! You can see each shirt, pick the one you want and not create a major upheaval of all the others. Crossing my fingers that it works.

Here's the jeans in the former T-shirt drawer. I love order!!

I was having so much fun, I decided to do my son's drawer too.

Everything fits with room to spare. I had to swap his drawer too, for the next drawer down, so it was deep enough. He doesn't make a mess of his clothes, but I have to rotate his shirts, or he'll just pick the top one everyday. This way he can choose whatever he wants. 

Well, it's time to think about making dinner, so my fun is done. Maybe I'll try another idea tomorrow! 

Thanks for stopping by.
