This is going to be embarrassing for me. And actually, I am feeling so embarrassed about it that I really wasn’t sure I could show the world how bad my drawers have gotten. I’m fairly good about cleaning out everything else in my wardrobe except my undergarments. I included my tights/socks drawer too because that may have been the worst of them all.
So I pulled all three drawers out of my dresser and threw them on the bed. Seeing all the junk in them all together really made a big difference. I had been pretty good about cleaning out my bra drawer (I don’t know why that one is easier than the others). But, I had underwear and socks in these drawers that I probably bought 5 years ago. Hopefully, I’m not the only one who has let it get this bad. It’s not like I wore any of these old things, I just didn’t throw them away.
I essentially made three piles; throw away, give away and keep. I neatly folded all of the keep and put it back in the drawers as I went. I threw out all socks with holes in them, all socks without a match and all of the old underwear that didn’t still have tags on them (I got a lot of cheesy underwear from my bachelorette party that I’d never wear or was the wrong size). I gave away all of the bras (a worn bra is better than no bra I figure), all the tights and leggings that are a little rough but wearable and the unworn still tagged underwear.
And this is the result.
So here it is, my great confession. The embarrassment of my dresser drawers. I don’t know why I’ve always been so terrible about cleaning all of this out. I clean out my closet and other clothes regularly.
So, now it’s time to start fresh. I feel refreshed. This feeling is addictive. In the last few days I’ve cleaned out all the closets in the house. While there are only 4 in our little apartment, they are a very full 4.
So please, shall any clean out stories you have. They really do inspire me.
