Yellow helps create the effect of a cheerful bright space, even if it’s grey and gloomy outside. These sunny yellow headboards do just that in these beautiful bedrooms:
- Get rid of undergarments that don’t fit you properly, are uncomfortable, and/or are worn out. In other words, out go the pieces that you never wear or feel good wearing. They’re just cluttering up your drawer and getting in the way of being able to easily find the pieces you do wear. Bras in good condition can be recycled here.
- Sort the keepers by type: bras, undies, camisoles, etc.
- …as well as by function: everyday, fancy, etc.
- You can also sort by color, if that’s something you consider when selecting what to wear: nude, black, brights, etc.
- Arrange based on frequency of use. Everyday undergarments need to be the most easily accessible, so they should be up front or in the most easy to reach drawer. Pieces you only use once in awhile, such as for a certain occasion or with a particular type of clothing, can go in the back or in a less accessible drawer.
- Use dividers to keep everything sorted and in place within the drawer. Be sure to first look at what you have, and measure the height, width and depth of your drawer(s) before buying anything! A few options:

I love when people think creatively and use things for something other than their intended purpose. In an article for Traditional Home, Chris Plantan suggested using a jewelry box to organize small office items like paper clips, pushpins, pens, tape, notepads, etc. Looks pretty enough to have out on a desktop for easy access. Great idea! -wouldn’t you agree?
In case you’re wondering, the box shown is the McKenna from Pottery Barn (unfortunately looks like they no longer offer it in pink).

Use small hooks on a rod or under a shelf to hang, make easily accessible, and display beautiful cups:

Love the idea of using sofa seating in a dining area. It’s pleasantly unexpected and helps create a comfortable casual feel:

Love this idea from Emily of Cupcakes and Cashmere. She used a frame, hooks, and wire to create a sunglass holder:
See how she did it here.
p.s. Along similar lines, another idea.
