5 easy steps for a perfect underwear drawer
I've become obsessed with the idea of being amazingly organized and recently, I've been perfecting my folding techniques so that I can fit the maximum amount of stuff in to the tiniest amount of space.

My underwear drawer was to be full to the brim, but now it's super easy to find exactly what I'm looking for.

i do the same thing.. only i fold the top-side down first, and tuck the bottom third into the top. :P same thing, it just keeps it from coming undone.

I feel like I should post a how-to on folding the fitted bedsheets... y'know...the bottom sheet with the elastic, which never lay flat when you fold 'em? I learnt from some chick (could've been Martha Stewart LOL) on a women's talk show...how to fold them so they lay nice and flat. I'll have to actually take pix though so... we'll see. lol.
