There are moments in my life when I say “self, you are crushing it and living your best life ever”. Then there are moments when I think I am off my rocker. And then, moments happen like this when I think it is both. I’m living my best crazy life.

I made a dresser drawer organizer for my underwear drawer. And I made it out of Legos. Well, Duplos actually.

So in my underwear drawer, I store underwear (newsflash), bras (what’s the point even?), and sports bras (another entirely unnecessary item of clothing for me). And every few months I organize and separate them and it works great. For a time. Slowly but surely, the bras start mingling with the underwear, and then the sports bras try to join the party and things get weird.

You know how much I like things organized. I’ve looked at buying a dresser drawer organizer before, but nothing really spoke to me. It seemed like an annoying expense and so I went without. Bennett got a set of Duplos for Christmas, and they were added to the giant bin of Duplos we already own. I looked at them sitting in there and realized Legos are essentially a blank slate and you can build anything with them. A-n-y-t-h-i-n-g. Even an organizer for my underwear drawer. 🙂

The building took only a few minutes and was actually pretty fun. I took everything out of the drawer and placed blocks in what seemed like a reasonable layout.

Since the blocks weren’t attached to a base, I made sure that the second layer had blocks overlapping the space where two blocks weren’t connected.

And then I kept building. After four layers, it seemed just about right.

Nay, it was awesome.

  1. This project cracks me up!! Very clever. And frugal. And effective!

  2. So clever. I’ve used cereal boxes and duct tape because I have no kids and no one buys me Legos ( sad trombone). I must admit to a bit of jealousy, though. One of my bras would take up that entire drawer! Hmm, now I must figure out an equally awesome storage solution, besides a shrink ray.
