Tackle It Tuesday #3 - again with the sock drawers
So a couple of weeks ago, I showed a tiny bit of progress I had made on decluttering in my house. A single drawer in my bedroom dresser. It was the top drawer, and I have successfully kept clutter from piling back into it in the three weeks since I cleaned it out. And yet, the dresser still looks like this:
Hey, the fact that the top drawer actually closes now is a huge (and very positive) change from before. But as you can see, the second drawer needed major work.
Socks, knee-high stockings, pantyhose, and slips, all in a jumble. But with the new-found room in my top drawer, and some additional weeding out, I was able to find a space for everything.
This is the top drawer now. I somehow failed to take a shot of the second drawer now, which looks basically the same - another sock drawer organizer, and then to the left some folded things. I was even able to organize all my underfrillies with the two sock organizers. And - in a rare move - I am actually throwing something away. Three pairs of maternity underwear that make me feel bad every time I put them on. It has been almost three years since I was pregnant, do I really need to be wearing those now? And, though I'm all about passing my unusables on to other people, I just can't see giving these to anyone. So, score one for the landfill. Sorry, Mama Earth.
[on second thought, they are not in the trash yet, is there a non-landfill way to part with cotton? It's not compostable is it? I cannot see repurposing these for anything else, so if there's a way to recycle these, I'd love to know it]
Sorry for all the talk about underthings. I promise my next post won't be so, er, intimate.
Two drawers down. Three drawers, plus the top surface, to go.
