I started using Marie Kondos ideas in the bedroom dressers for my husband's t-shirts, underwear, and socks, it has made a huge difference. As for my stuff, I arranged my panties, bras, nightdresses, lounging pants, socks, and bathing suits, for my t-shirts I prefer to hang them. The stand-up version in drawers makes everything so much easier to find what you're looking for and it keeps things very neat. For my sock drawer, I have a small flashlight I leave in it so I can distinguish the different socks by texture or black/navy, etc. I have used Marie Kondos method for over a year now and love it! An added note: Using Kondo's method of standing up items when packing a suitcase for travel is particularly great, it takes less room and things stay neat as you use them.

One of her most practical pointers is gathering together "like" items from around the entire house so you can see just how many multiples you have of certain things. This is better than doing it room by room.
