Here are some tips to keep a tidy sock drawer:
- Use the one layer rule: Whenever possible, arrange the drawer contents only one layer deep. When you open the drawer, you should be able to see and access any item in the drawer without fist moving something else. When things are buried we rummage and clothes become unfolded and untidy.
- Fold socks instead of balling them up...it puts less strain on the elastic and looks tidier.
- Roll stockings and put them in a smooth sided organizer that won't snag them and cause them to tear. (I used clear plastic condiment trays from the dollar store)
