As a person who rolls my shirts (have done that for years and it saves SO much space) - I was still left with the biggest frustration of them all - messy piles within my drawers.
When I want a shirt in the drawer - it will always mess up, unroll (unfold) the shirts right next to it. Then, my neat drawer is now a technical gear pile. I refuse to use all my good hangers for race day gear and take up more hanging closet space.
I bought a 3 drawer plastic dresser. That way, I keep that in my walk-in closet and I keep my workout gear separate from my work, church and everyday wear. I do not wear my training gear for other aspects of my life.
- First drawer - technical shirts
- Second drawer - cotton shirts, etc
- Third drawer - shorts/bottoms
To solve the problem of the shirt ending up in a pile each day - I deiced to wrap a rubberband around each shirt. I also do that for the cotton race day shirts.
Here is a picture of my technical shirts inside my drawer:
I have been doing this for a month and guess what? I sure keeps my drawers a lot more organized and the shirts easier to find! I am so much happier.
Do you you organize your gear in a unique way? Have any tips for others? Please share.
