Spring Cleaning Your Dresser Drawers Is Easy When You File Your T-Shirts Vertically (VIDEO, PHOTO)

If you've ever done battle with a packed drawer of folded t-shirts, than you know what a headache it can be to organize the damn things. But it turns out there's a better way to keep tees contained, neatly folded and easy-to-grab. You just have to change the way you position each shirt as you pack them into the drawer.

Reddit user YrSonicDeath can explain it better with a photo uploaded just in time for spring cleaning, of t-shirts filed vertically into a dresser.

This little trick makes it super easy to tell, with a single glance, your favorite yoga shirt from your boyfriend's hole-y old Metallica tee. (He never wears it, but good luck getting him to toss it out.) Plus, it looks like you can fit a few more t-shirts in the drawer, versus the old organizational tactic. Which was little more than "throw everything in the drawer, because they are just old tees."

Watch the video above from Simple Organized Living to learn just how to keep your dresser looking this good. And be sure to click through our slideshow for more awesome lifehacks and head over to Reddit for more information.
