Closet Organizing Tip: Delicates

Give them their own space!

It is easy to select a drawer, and just throw your bras and underwear, and socks in, creating a piled mess. Most people do! Yet, it just makes it that much harder when you want to find that certain one.

Enter the honeycomb and cloth dividers. These items are very inexpensive, yet do wonders for organizing. The honeycomb can be used for bras, socks or belts, to separate them neatly. I even put two pairs of underwear into each one, separated by color. This structured drawer also alerts you to when you're getting low on clean items (or favorites) and that it may be time for a load of laundry. You can also do this using cardboard, if you want to be extra budget conscious.

In the bra department, there are a few options I've used/seen.
The "Boobie Trap" bra organizer from the Container Store is a little pricier than others, but holds the shape of each bra perfectly, and is barely visible. The downside it is only fits bras up to a D cup, so it won't work for everyone. 

My go-to is cloth storage boxes, like these. You can stack your bras next to each other, and there are slots to help keep them upright and in the correct place, even after removing one. Your drawer will soon look like the ones at Victoria's Secret! Visually appealing and functional.

Tip: Never fold your bras with contoured cups when storing them.  Over time, they will become permanently rippled and it will ruin the integrity of the cups. 

If you don't want to spend money, you can just position them side by side in the same way, without using an organizer. You'll still be able to see all of them, and it will definitely make the drawer much more organized. (You may have to re-stack them slightly when you take one from the middle).

Happy organizing!
