Do you keep your dresser drawers organized?

Do you have certain drawers for everything or you do have it all mixed up? Can you find what you are looking for quickly or do you have to hunt? Do you have too much in them or do you keep them neat?

Yes, I organize my drawers. As I hate trying to hunt for something and can't find it. All my drawers are neat. I do have a big basket of un matted socks thou. Butthat is it.

I tend to keep more fold clothes then I should. Now I have just too many... so I either have to put some in storage or they have to go. Its getting hard to close all these drawers which means overload...

Yes, for the most part, I do. But I wouldn't call myself a neat-freak. If something gets tumbled around or falls out of order, it is of little concern to me. But I have a husband who places each spoon and fork perfectly in the silverware drawer. His closet has shirts that button and face the same direction. That's a bit overboard for me. Organization is nice, but one can focus on it too much to enjoy life as it is being lived.

I have too much in mine now. I just kept putting it off and now I just have added too much so it must be taken care of...and that means that I will have to part with some things.

Actually, I have just organized my closet. I decided that I want everything to have a place of its own. It is easier for me to look for things. So right now, everything is in order but then, I am not sure until when it would last. LOL

All of mine are organized in the way that certain things go in certain ones, but they are not neat by any means. When I need to find something I generally have to hunt a little. It helps knowing where to look, but there is so much in there that it's almost impossible to have it neat.

My husband is usually the one that organizes the drawers in the house. He was once very good at it. Lately I have found the drawers to be disorganized. I guess he gave up. I am now the one that has to reorganize all the drawers. The junk drawers are the messiest. I can't find a flippin thing in them! He keeps piling stuff in. I have redone them several times.

I keep mine in order, I hate to see things unorganized, it makes me crazy.. I have different drawers for different items, and I don't like to see them mixed together.. I could find things in my house if I were blindfolded..

I like to keep them neat.....especially the sock/underwear drawer. The others might at times get a little disorganized but not very much. I like to be able to just reach in and get what I need.

I hate clutter anywhere, be it on show or in drawers, so I reguarly clear them out and get rid of things I don't want, so I like to keep everywhere neat and everything in it's right place, I have wasted too much time hunting for stuff and getting frustrated, I am not a patient person so I need to find something straight away not hunt it down. I learnt my lesson the hard way, I know where everything is. I am a methodical and systematic person so it stands to reason all my drawers and cupboards are fully organized.

I used to have a lot of clutter but since moving into my new house I have got rid of a lot of it. All the drawers in my new house are very neat and tidy and I never put anything into them that I won't use again. I get rid of anything I don't need as soon as it comes into the house. I am going to try to keep it this way, but then one never knows when I might just slip back into my untidy state and start to accumulate the clutter again.

Hmmm...... getting a little personal now, aren't we?hehehe Actually, I have drawers designated for certain things and they are generally not too messy. Socks, pantyhose and the like are not that easy to make look neat, but they are fairly easy to locate. My children's dressers? Now that is a whole other story!! We each have our own job with those. ........ I try.............they destroy!
