How YOU “drawer-in”???

Guys.  In case you aren’t a HUGE fan like me, that title was a shout out to my FAVORITE, Wendy Williams (How YOU doin’?!).  Don’t judge.  Anyway, I wanted to talk about drawer organization .  I know.  Snooze.  But seriously…


Labels included but cut out of the picture

This is where it’s at.  I’ve been known to be quite Type-A at times, and I guess this post will support that supposition 😉

SO, I overhaul the boy’s dressers at least once a season. I am seeing that I will have to do G’s more often as he tends to cycle through clothing quicker than Z.  Yesterday I completed said overhaul and wanted to give you some tips:

  1.  Take everything out of the drawers and create piles (for me it is three:  Keep for current drawer, donate, save for next child)
  2. Leave SOME (a few pieces) of the last (ending) season’s clothing in the drawer for a-typical weather days, etc.
  3. Think outside the box when organizing your drawers.  I don’t put clothing in the “typical” stacking way.  Some roll to see better, I stack but keep a space down the middle so that I am able to see each item within the stacks well.
  4. Make a stack of “outfits.” I LOVE outfits that come put together. I used to put all shirts together and all pants, etc. While I still make separate pant and shirt stacks, I now do an “outfit” stack for ease and speed.


OK, so now that I’ve bored you, go take a nap (or organize your drawers)!



Bye, September! Don’t let the door hit ya!

Not gonna lie.  SUPER happy September has come and gone because it really wasn’t my favorite, BUT with all things, we must choose to see the positive.  So here are some September highlights!


Running on the Ben Franklin Bridge sans cars thanks to the Papal visit

I completed my streak!  90 miles for September, with a literally EVEN average of 3 miles a day (not soooo shabby for no rest days and a lot of speed work, tempos, etc.)!


Big guy’s first day of school


Blue Apron dinners on fleek!


Little guy moved on to the big boy bath.


Big guy started (and LOVED) soccer lessons!


Backyard (much needed) overhaul


Big guy started drum lessons (ummmm beyond adorable)!


TONS of brotherly bonding (finally at the age for this!).

Eh.  Maybe September wasn’t TOO bad, but October…Bring it on!
