How do you arrange your sock drawer?

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Odd question maybe but I'm in need of advice!

I just went through my drawer and couldn't believe some of the things I found in there! (like undies I haven't seen or worn since junior high!) So I'd like to keep it more organized if I can. But I'm in need of suggestions.

So far I 'rolled' all my undies and organized socks in to matches and then categories like work socks, short socks, long socks, no show socks, Holiday socks, icky mess around the yard socks, etc. But now what! It looks great laying out all over the bed! Oh my undies have categories too. Should I try to look for some type of divider or little baskets? And if I try baskets, how do I put them in there? Rolled, folded and stacked, or something else?

Arrange?

Heck, for that matter...

Sock drawer?

I store my summer/winter socks each season. For the current ones I have an apparatus made of plastic that has diamond shaped holes (picture a tic-tac-toe board slightly off-kilter to form diamonds instead of squares). One pair of socks fits into each hole and the thing holds about 20 pairs of socks. It just sits on the bottom of the drawer and I put each pair into a hole. Keeps the drawer neat and the socks are easily assessible when wanted.

I have two smaller drawers in the top row of my dresser. One drawer is white socks, the other is black.

Very simple system.

I just keep them all in one drawer, rolled with nothing else in that drawer and pick out what I want to wear, as needed.

I arrange them by color and I fold them in half, they are small considering I buy girls socks mostly because I have small feet. I have about 25 pairs of cat socks too

I have 2 small bins - 1 for underwear, 1 for socks. They get folded and put it - that's it. Works for me and I've never had a second thought about it.

I match socks when I take them out of the dryer and fold the cuffs over so they stay together. Other than that, all socks and underthings are thrown into one drawer!

The key, for me, is to make sure that it is all stuff I actually wear. As soon as there's a hole or if it's uncomfortable, I trash it, so the drawer is never crowded.

We do that too! I've been leaving Scott's socks though as I don't wear socks in the summer!

Arrange? I more or less match up socks when I take them out of the dryer, dump my husband's on his side of the bed for him to put away in his drawer, and shove mine into a laundry bag kept in the bottom of my closet.

I just roll pairs together and throw them in the drawer. No arranging, although I probably should have two categories: Socks with holes and Socks without holes

Of course, Reeses sometimes helps me get a bit more organized.

I just have my underwear all the way to the left, bras I dont wear often in the middle, and socks all the way to the right...

when my stuff actually makes it from the clean laundry basket to the drawers...

What's a sock drawer?
post #16 of 26
John and I are down to about 3 pairs of socks total... not a clue what happened to them all, we bought three packages a couple months ago and gradually they've all vanished. One of life's great mysteries I suppose.
When we do have socks, I roll them and just throw them in my underwear drawer. There's not much organization but they're all in one drawer at least.

Yip me too. I roll them up and shove them in their drawer.
I thought about getting an IKEA divider like Linda was talking about, but I have way too many socks to fit.
Socks and undies are my fetishes.

Wait, you're supposed to arrange it?

I don't really arrange mine except that the socks I only wear for special occasions tend to get pushed way in the back due to the socks I actually wear being put in the front of the drawer... Oh and I do match the socks before I put them in, that's about the extent of my arranging!

I don't. Everything is just thrown into the "gitch drawer."

Mine is just a big mess.

well, actually, neither do i, except when i'm mowing the lawn. i wear sandals until it's just too darn cold to do so - usually around October hereabouts. then i can start wearing them again on a regular basis around March or April. i can also occasionally wear them during the winter, depending on when we have our 'unseasonably warm' winter days.

Well I got everything back in there (except what was thrown out). It's organized, but there is still a ton of stuff! DH suggested making one drawer for undies and another for socks. Umm...to do that I'd need to start taking over HIS dresser!

I usually keep them in the kitchen where the washer is!! hehehe

I just started matching my socks up. I threw away all of my other socks and bought two packages of the same exact white socks. As long as I have an even number, they all match!

They are all just stuffed into my top drawer. Sometimes sticking out for the kitties to play with. I don't know why that drawer is only 2 inches deep....
