Closet Organizing Tip: Rolling

Roll 'em, roll 'em, roll em

Hi again, Dolls!

Do your drawers look like this? 

Is it hard to see what you have? 


Do the top items keep getting smushed when you open or close the drawer? 

My tip: 




Rolling items will work for many areas of your closet (think underwear, socks, scarves) but works especially well in drawers. Not only will it make the drawer appear to hold more, but it also allows you to see more of what you have. When you fold items, you stack them one on top of the other, which means you can really only see the top item until you lift each one up below it. When you roll them, you can now lay them side by side, which allows for seeing many of them at one time (even if there are a few layers of rolled items). 


The drawer is now much neater, and the items are much more visible. You can also fit more items in this drawer, than you can by folding them (similar to when you pack a suitcase). Now the drawer can open and close easily, without getting stuck on the clothes. I was also able to put more into the drawer than was there before. 
I know, I know. "Edit the items, or purge" you say? That's the problem. This IS the edited selection. Getting hand-me-downs from friends is AWESOME, except when you start to run out of space. Now you can keep more of the adorable items that still fit, rather than having to get rid of them just to save space. #momproblems


Not only is rolling great for saving space, it also keeps things from getting wrinkled like they do from folding!  I rolled all of these scarves, rather than folding them, or just throwing them in the basket. Now I can see every option I have, without having to dig/lift others up.


True, this tip may work better for you, or older kids, rather than toddlers...but they are going to mess up any type of folding, so why not make your life a little easier when trying to fit all of the clean laundry back into the space. 

Hope this helps y'all get motivated on that closet! Stay tuned for more closet organizing tips.
