PHOENIX -- If you're like many people, you are not always entirely sure what is in your dresser drawers. Everything is neatly folded and stacked, but that stack is the issue. Do you know what's at the bottom?

There's a very easy solution when it comes to T-shirts.

"I tell my clients, 'Vertical is visible. Horizontal is hidden," professional organizer Bridges Conner explained to 3TVs' Gina Maravilla. "You tend to forget what you have at the bottom and you're going to just wear what’s off of the top. Out of sight, out of mind."

Conner suggests folding your shirts so that you can put them in rows in your drawers. Not stacks. The rows give you easy access to everything.

Because you can see all of your shirts at once -- without digging through the drawers -- you know what you have, what you need, and, just as important, what you do not need.

If you are not a fan of folding laundry or tend to be soemthing less than neat about it, Conner found a tool that she loves -- the FlipFOLD Laundry Folder from The Container Store.
