The feeling of an organized dresser is a different kind of peace. It feels great to see all your clothes and accessories neatly stacked with no drawers overflowing with socks and scarfs, make up scattered on the dresser and necklaces tangled up in a corner.
However, truthfully speaking how long does a neat dresser last? By the end of the week it is safe to say that all your efforts to keep it organized is wasted. This is where the saying work smart not hard comes into play. Here are tips to not only just organize your dresser but to make sure it permanently stays that way.
Categorize clothes into bundles
We all have a drawer that is full of clothes we hardly wear, but we haven’t got to getting rid of it based on either sentimental value or because we think we might use it one day. This is the hard part of the organization process, deciding what clothes stay and what needs to get rid of. Heavy clothes such as sweaters, denims or winter clothes can be stored in a wardrobe leaving the dresser drawers for small items such as t-shirts, underwear and frequently worn clothes as well.
Designate drawers depending on purpose
A dresser usually has 2 smaller drawers and 2 larger ones. Instead of mixing everything divides them. The smaller ones can be used to store make up or jewellery something that does not take much space and you frequently use.

Rolling up clothes make it easier to store as more space is saved can it can be found in a rush. This way you can avoid the avalanche of clothes piling out of your drawers.
Personalize the dresser top
With your drawers used to store clothes and other accessories, the dresser top is free for you to design and organize how you like it. If you have regulars such as a watch or chain or items you use in your daily make up routine, they can be kept out so you save time instead of having to rummage through drawers.
Ornaments can be converted to hang the jewellery and holders for hair straighteners or curlers can be stored near the power outlets. The dresser top can be kept minimalistic and classy. Lights installed around the mirror give off a chick vibe.
In order to stay organized it does take discipline but with these useful tips to make life easier staying neat is less of a hassle and more a way of life. Organizing a dresser also keeps clothes and accessories safe and last longer.
