Drawers are the most jam-packed place and yet the most neglected one while cleaning. Unfortunately, this is the case in most of the houses. But if you can come up with a way of organizing them, drawers can be used as excellent storage places. If you can manage them properly, you might even put in more stuff than you have at present.
Organizing them is also really easy. Here are four easy steps that can change the way your drawer works.

No matter where the drawer is in your home, the first task is to bring all the goods and junk inside it. Working with a filled drawer is not such a good idea as it would be complicated and time-consuming.
So, whether the drawer is in your bathroom or bedroom, to organize, pull everything out of it.
Step 2: Reorder and Remove
Once you have got everything out, try putting them in a convenient temporary place and sort them out. You can arrange them according to the types of items, the frequency of using them, or even the brands if you like. The arrangement would mainly depend on the purpose for which you are using the drawer.
If the drawer is for your cosmetics, you can sort them according to the type. For example, you can sort by colors if you are working on your makeup drawer. If you are going to put clothes in the drawer, you can fold and sort similar clothes together. Additionally, visit this website to know about modern cleaning and organizing tips and tricks.
