These folding hacks make organizing your dresser a breeze
FILLIP HORD: Welcome back to "In the Know, Uncluttered." I'm Fillip.
JAMIE HORD: And I'm Jamie. And today, we're gonna show you how to organize a dresser.
So here we have a shared dresser. These expandable drawer dividers are going to create structure inside your drawer.
FILLIP HORD: We used a clear label to ensure that it's barely visible.
JAMIE HORD: So here we have his and hers tops and PJs. In this drawer, we have her shorts and his shorts. And at the bottom, we've got her lounge and his lounge.
Now I'm going to show you guys how to fold some clothes. The first tip I always give when folding is to look at the item and then lay it down flat. So imagine a line going down the middle. And for the boxers, we're going to do a trifold. And then you're gonna take the top up. You're gonna slide your hand underneath for support, lift this top flap, and tuck this in.
For the socks, you're gonna do a half-fold, and then you're gonna tuck it in. Next I'm gonna show you how to fold a T-shirt. Lay it facedown. We're gonna go almost halfway in.
You're gonna fold the sleeve back and then come in almost halfway with the other side. And then we're gonna fold upward. And the magic number for T-shirts is usually four folds.
Next we're gonna show you how to fold a pair of shorts. This part you can tuck in, and then you can fold up again however deep your drawers are. Here we're gonna do two folds.
So now we're gonna show you how to fold a sweatshirt and sweatpants. Lay it facedown. We're not gonna go in all the way. And then you want to lay the long-sleeve down flat. Go in on the other side. Now we're gonna roll up, and we're gonna do, probably, three folds here.
Now we're gonna do a pair of sweatpants. This guy we're going to tuck in, and we're gonna take the bottom almost all the way to the top right below the waistline there-- and, again, two folds.
So there you have it. We hope these tips and tricks were helpful to getting your dresser organized. I'm Jamie.
