Monday Minimalist: Drawers Drawers

How much underwear do you own? How much of it do you actually wear? That is your bite sized project this week, go through your underwear drawer. If you never wear it (because it is outgrown, stained, has holes, or is just too fancy), seriously consider tossing it.

I don't like to wear underwear anyway. I wear it for roughly one week per month (you know what I mean). I have some t-backs for special occasions. Otherwise, forget it. I'd forgotten, though, that I did this once already this year. Still, I found 3 pairs of panties, 1 bra that I hate, and 1 holey sock to toss. That talking birthday card also went into the garbage.

This didn't make a huge difference in the amount of space, but it did help a little. I'd like to move my sports bras and nursing pads from the plastic baby dresser into my own drawer since both babies will be sharing the plastic one soon.

Currently in my Drawers Drawer: panties (+ 1 top that matches a pair of panties), socks, 2 pairs of tights, my working-in-the-cold fingerless gloves, headband/earmuff thing, and some bandanas. I used to use 3 drawers, stuffed. Now I use 2 with room to spare.

I hope you're enjoying these bite-sized projects. I'm enjoying doing them. What bite sized minimizing projects have you tackled lately?
