Go look in your dresser
drawers. Chances are itís not pretty, and you probably canít figure out how it got that way. Itís a common problem, but there are things you can do to get organized and stay that way.
The first step in getting organized is to go through everything in your dresser
and get rid of anything you donít use, donít need, donít like, or have no idea why you even have. Unwanted items create clutter, making it harder to stay organized.

top, a place that is often a dumping ground for bits and pieces. Purge unwanted items as you did for your drawers, then find a home for other items. If you keep perfume on your dresser
top, find a decorative tray or dish to display them on. A jewelry box can help corral your earrings and necklaces. Mens valets are ideal for gathering up loose change, wallets, and other items that often crowd the dresser
