  • I have a little confession to make. I have a wicked case of drawer envy and here's why.

  • This is actually legit, what my drawer

  • looks like right now. No, that hasn't been staged.

  • And if you look at my T-shirts, they're also quite, uh, disorganized.

  • Now, when you live with somebody who's neat and tidy and perfect

  • in the clothing department, like I do, aka my husband Chad,

  • and this is what his T-shirt drawer looks like, which many of you guys

  • saw at the Bed Bath & Beyond haul video that we did last week, it becomes

  • a little bit frustrating, infuriating to live with that all the time.

  • So I figured, you know what, I am gonna revamp my drawers

  • so that they look store ready, store beautiful.

  • I'm gonna make them look way better than his, and I'm gonna take

  • you guys along for the journey. And of course, because it's me,

  • I am figuring out the easiest and quickest way to get that all done.

  • So without further ado, let's reorganize.

  • Well, this is awkward. We're gonna kick things off

  • with my underwear and bra drawer. I'm gonna start by removing

  • everything from the drawer, and this allows me to take inventory

  • of my unmentionables, and maybe prune a few items right off the bat.

  • For my bras, I'm gonna clip them up and store them

  • one behind the other, just like they do at the store.

  • You can use a drawer divider to ensure they all stay in one place.

  • For my underwear, I'm just gonna fold them into a nice little package and file

  • them in a similar manner to the bras.

  • This saves a ton of room and works better than my old method of just dumping everything into the drawer.

  • The result of a very easy job, my bras are all lined up back-to-back, my underwear

  • is stacked in these two easy-to-access, beautiful columns, and I have done

  • such a great job that I freed up an entire third of my top drawer.

  • You know, sometimes I even impress myself.

  • And now we'll move down a drawer to a slightly less awkward subject matter,

  • where we can check out my T-shirts.

  • You can see they're pretty sloppy, and again the reason why

  • I wanted to do this whole project is because Chad's drawer

  • is just so freakin' beautiful. [singing]

  • Anyway, the reason why this is such a great method is because not only can you

  • see what's on each shirt, you know when they're folded and stacked

  • on top of one another, you really don't know what you have.

  • But the other thing that's really interesting to note is that because the

  • clothing isn't being weighted down by the weight of the other garments,

  • you're actually not creating wrinkles and creases in your shirts the way

  • you would be if they were folded and stacked one on top of the other.

  • So we'll start this drawer, as we did the first drawer,

  • and empty everything out and take inventory of what I have in here.

  • The secret to an organized T-shirt drawer is in the folding.

  • As you can see, I'm folding each side of the shirt in

  • and then folding it in half and, here's the trick, in half again.

  • This allows for any prints, which are usually on the chest,

  • to be easily visible without having to root around.

  • Remember to have the print side facing the floor when you're folding.

  • That way your image will show on the front.

  • For tank tops, I'm gonna fold them in half lengthwise

  • and then repeat the same folds as the T-shirts.

  • Then I'll file the shirts into the drawer, quite like folders in a filing cabinet.

  • I think this looks great. I have economized more than half of the

  • space in this particular drawer, and my T-shirts are so much easier to access.

  • I know everything that's in there. I got reacquainted with a lot of the

  • shirts that I completely forgot about, and clearly I need to do some shopping.

  • I can't decide if showing you my underwear drawer was

  • more embarrassing than what I'm about to show you here

  • in my sock drawer, but I don't know, you be the judge.

  • Look at my ridiculous sock drawer. I mean this is like crazy.

  • You guys are free to throw your virtual tomatoes at me. I get it.

  • But I wonder if your sock drawers look any better than mine.

  • Anyway, there is a really interesting theory about how to fold

  • your socks, and I'm gonna give that one a try and see

  • how it actually works out for all of this.

  • I am taking it from Marie Kondo's book called "The Life-Changing Magic

  • of Tidying Up," which I know a lot of you guys have read.

  • It's very interesting, and her theory is that if you ball up your socks like this,

  • I think she calls them like baked potatoes or something.

  • A lot of people don't like this. As you can see, it's really hard

  • to organize, but also, eventually it does stretch out the elastic bands

  • on the top of your socks. The whole reason those are there is so

  • that they can stay up on your shins and not just ring around your ankles.

  • So, without further ado, let's give her method a try

  • and see if it makes my sock drawer look any better.

  • Again, I'll start by removing all the socks in the drawer

  • and removing any socks which are not worn or too worn.

  • So here's how socks should be folded.

  • Take both socks and lay them one on top of the other.

  • Fold the socks in half. Fold them in half again.

  • And congratulations, you have now apparently

  • folded your socks correctly. Once folded, I'm gonna put my socks

  • back into the drawer in the same orderly fashion that I used for my bras, undies,

  • and T-shirts, and voila, an organized sock drawer.

  • The drawer turned out absolutely fantastic.

  • Marie Kondo's method worked beautifully. It was very easy to do, and I think this

  • looks very organized and store-like. This is pure Canada. You get this with

  • your Canadian passport, and this extra space over here is going to be used for my pantyhose.

  • I am thrilled with my little drawer revamping endeavor.

  • As you guys can see, I don't care if it's perfect or color coded.

  • I just care that it's done

  • and that it's easy. So I hope this helped you.

  • I want to know if you are going to be embarking on your own drawer

  • reorganization journey. If you are, let me know in the comments

  • down below and let me know if you have any folding tricks down below, because
