Day 6: Dresser

I decided to surprise the hubs and organize his dresser since I had recently done mine. I did Hadley's yesterday and finished Connor's tonight. Whew!!! That's a lot of work. I've got to get all of this done before the Vets come pick up on Tuesday. I am so happy to be de-cluttering our house though.

Before
Not too bad.. I had a bunch of things from both of our dressers to donate. Darrell looked through it when he got home and was only opposed to getting rid of two of the t-shirts. (One was a t-shirt we both got on our first trip together.) Go ahead, you can say it...AWWWWWW!

This one was a mess. There were tons of socks that had lost their elasticity and a bunch I know Darrell doesn't even wear anymore because he likes ankle socks not no shows.

After
I bought one of those plastic honeycomb sock organizer things and voila! instant organization/neatness. I also grouped shorts by style. For example, there is a drawer with khaki shorts(yes, I know khaki is a color not a type, but that's what we call them in the good ole South), one with gym shorts, and one with swim trunks.

Saw this folding strategy on another blog and decided to try it out. It really does give you more room and you can see what you have. I love it! Can you guess which NFL team we cheer for?? WHO DAT!!!!

Great job on the dresser. I will have to check out the other linked blogs to find that t-shirt storage idea (are they rolled?)

It is so nice to meet you. I love the owls and colours on your blog and I LOVE the scripture that you posted.

Great job!! I love it, I need to do both challenges today. I had a CRAZY day yesterday. If you think of it, could you share the blog that had the folding...looks great!

Even though I am a hard core Patriots fan, I have to say The Saints are my second fav!!! WHO DAT!
