This may sound like a second grade question, but how the heck can I store my pantyhose and tights so that they don't end up in a jumble in my drawer? Knotted Up Noelle

Dear Knotted Up Noelle
This isn't a second grade question at all. You just need to get some home organizing tips. I know lots of people like you who make their own drawer dividers to separate their panties, bras, bathing suits and/or lingerie. These are delicate items that require special care. Here are some ideas for you:
- Drawer Cubbies are great because they snap together for easy storage either in your drawer, or on a shelf. They keep your socks, hose, scarves, gloves, etc... neat and separated. They will ensure that your pantyhose are tucked away neatly and away from anything that might snag them. You can purchase them in two different sizes here for $12.98-$24.98.
- The Diamond Drawer Organizer looks easy enough to attach to your drawers and makes a heck of a difference with clutter. It's got 32 diamond-shaped compartments made out of smooth-edged plastic so it won’t catch on your delicates. It's adjustable, (the ends can be cut if it's too long) and you can add another unit if necessary to fit into larger sized drawers. Buy it here for $8.99
- The Do It Yourself DEARSUGAR Method is easy and inexpensive as well. Start by cutting some heavy duty cardboard to fit your drawer lengthwise. Add one extra inch on the top and bottoms for security. With clear packing tape, fold over the extra inches on either side of the cardboard and tape the tabs to the inside of your drawer. Alas, you've got a divider!
Cut two more pieces of cardboard horizontally and fit them between one side of the divider and one side of the drawer. Do this until you have 3 separate sections in your drawer. Use the other half for larger items or continue to make dividers. The idea is to make it look like this picture below, only with cardboard materials instead of metal. This isn't the sturdiest method, but it works. Try it at home and let me know what you think.
* As a reminder, wash out your pantyhose and hang them to dry. then fold them gently and flatly into a square and place them back into the plastic back they came in to ensure safer storage.
