I’m in a MAJOR declutter frenzy. In Evernote, my favorite app on in cyberspace, I created a long project list for each spot in our house that has an ounce of clutter, which is pretty much every drawer and surface in our home, and organized it in minutes – 10, 20, 30, 60 – so I can tackle each area as I have a few minutes. This really means I will actually complete some of these small projects, rather than wait for a solid four hours to do a large project. If I ever had a solid four hours to do anything, I can assure you I would not choose to reorganize dresser drawers, therefore no decluttering would ever be completed.
So, I cleared out the drawer as one of my ten minute projects, which was stuffed full of t-shirts, pants, shorts, and pajamas and then added the shorts back in. I was about to add another forty-five t-shirts and take up every square centimeter of space in the drawer, when I had a lightbulb moment: perhaps it would be a better idea if I did not cram more clothes into this drawer.
Let’s ponder that for a moment. Yes, that does make sense, doesn’t it?
The trick to keep your drawers organized is so obvious: don’t put too much stuff in them. Leave plenty of room in the drawer, and you won’t have an overstuffed, disorganized, cringe-worthy clutter pile of wrinkled clothes.
So I left it. And the shorts are so happy to be sitting in first class with plenty of legroom.
