If there’s a clothing category that we tend to overlook, it would have to be underwear. We cram them into cabinets, stash them in drawers, and hide them at the bottom of our closets. And when we need to use the undies (and we always need undies!), we could never find them. Here are a few ways to organize your essentials:

Those storage methods may work for you at the moment, but they become unhelpful once you need a specific item—and can’t find it due to messy organization! Prevent this in the future by using one of the methods below:

Use a travel organizer.



Tall travel organizers aren’t just for cosmetics—you can use them for underwear, too! Small,  zippered compartments are especially useful for storing panties or briefs, while deeper compartments can be used for bras. If you want to maximize your organizers' space, roll up your underwear into tight bunches.

Attach filing trays to your closet door.



If you’re the kind of person who’s always rushing in the morning, it makes sense to have your underwear within easy reach. After all, they’re the first things you put on! Save time by hanging document trays or narrow baskets on the inside of your closet door. This way, your underwear will be right by your clothes—and getting dressed in the morning will be a breeze. You can buy these trays at most office supplies stores.

Store your bras sideways in a drawer.

Bras are one of the trickiest items of clothing to store, since their unusual shape takes up quite a lot of space. Stacking them sideways in a shallow drawer allows you all your items at once, so you can easily identify the right bra when you’re dressing up for a night out.  

Display your bras with connecting hangers.



Some women might think it’s diyahe to store their bras in the open—but if you have a pretty collection, why not? Connect hangers to each other by using pull tabs from canned soft drinks. Place the pull tab on the neck of the first hanger, then insert the hook of the second hanger in the remaining hole. Using this method not only saves space, it helps your bras keep their shape longer, too.

Utilize stacking boxes.

For people who love organization, stacking containers are a godsend. They give off a uniform look and come in all sizes, so you can store anything under the sun, including underwear. Make the most of your containers by dedicating one for each type of item: bras, panties or briefs, and socks.  You can find similar containers at Make Room And More at Estancia Mall, Capitol Commons, Pasig City.
