Closet organizing becomes a necessity in my small home when it’s clothing swap time. Today I spent a few minutes on my tank top collection. I keep it out all year round, because they make such great layering pieces, but it’s hard to keep them all folded neatly and to see what I’ve got in that stack. This tip works whether you’re working out of a drawer, like I am, or if you’re in a closet space with baskets. I’ll show you how to do it both ways.
First, let me show you the trick to being able to see ALL of your gorgeous tanks in one glance. The roll:
I took each tank top, and folded over the top like this:
Then I folded it in half…
and rolled it up!
That took me from messy stacks like this, to an easy to manage system where I could see everything in my drawer:
I like to let the lacey edges or ruffles show so I can see which tanks are embellished at first glance.
If you’re using a closet organizing system, then you can use the same idea, but set it up in a basket like this:
Can you believe how many tank tops I had in that drawer? WHO knew all that cuteness was hiding in the pile!
Clearly, I have a thing for purple tank tops.
