 Chest of Drawers

  1. Sort and DE clutter: Start with a Clear Slate

Before organizing your clothes into a chest of drawers, take time to organize your wardrobe by DE cluttering. Remove items that no longer fit, are worn out, or have been inactive for an extended period. Doing this not only saves space but ensures that only items you love wearing regularly remain. Once DE cluttered, it becomes much clearer which items need organizing and how much storage space will be required.

  1. Categorize and Group Similar Items

To keep a clean chest of drawers, clothes must be organized by categorizing and grouping similar items. Arrange them by categories such as tops, bottoms, dresses, or workout wear; and within each category subdivide them by type or occasion such as casual shirts, formal blouses jeans, and skirts - this helps you locate items quickly while simultaneously keeping everything neatly stored away.

  1. Utilize Drawer Dividers and Organizers

Drawer dividers and organizers are essential tools for optimizing space utilization while keeping clothing items separated and organized. Use dividers to separate folded items such as T-shirts, sweaters, or underwear into sections for folding; while organizers with compartments provide storage solutions for socks, belts, ties, etc. With these tools at your disposal, every inch of space can be maximized while remaining uncluttered and organized.

  1. Fold and Stack Strategically

Proper folding techniques are key to efficiently using drawer space. Fold clothes neatly and uniformly to conserve space while keeping wrinkles at bay, or try the Konmari method of folding for bulkier items like sweaters or hoodies; it creates compact rectangles which stack easily when stored away in drawers. When stacking folded clothes inside your drawers, place heavier or less frequently worn items at the bottom while lighter items should be stored at the top for easy access.

  1. Utilizing Vertical Space with Drawer Organizers

Use vertical space within your drawers more effectively by purchasing drawer organizers with multiple compartments or layers. These organizers allow you to stack folded clothes vertically like files do - enabling easier viewing and access from the front - saving both space and time digging through piles of clothing in search of what you're after. This method maximizes space while eliminating digging through piles for items you need.


It's arranging your clothes in a chest of drawers can be an efficient and practical way to streamline daily tasks. By following these five tips - sorting and decluttering, sorting by category/grouping/using dividers/organizers, strategic folding/stacking, etc., and maximizing vertical space - creating an orderly solution will create a functional storage solution.
