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.

    Start off by laying your pants down on a flat surface.

    Fold the left hand corner over, by a third, in to the middle, so that you have a nice straight edge on the left.

    Do the same with the right hand side.

    Fold the bottom half up again, by a third, so that you're left with a nice neat edge at the top and the bottom. It should be a perfect, flat little rectangle.

    You can now stack these rectangles in to neat little piles and put inside your drawer.

i do the same thing.. only i fold the top-side down first, and tuck the bottom third into the top. Tongue 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.
