let us get personal...

We're going to talk about underwear today. Panties. Undergarments. Lingerie. Intimates. We're going to talk about underpants. Not okay with it? We'll this isn't your blog.

Yesterday I had the best shopping experience ever, like it was Extreme Couponing worthy. I went to Bath and Body Works, American Eagle, and Victoria's Secret AND stayed under $40. Wam bam thank you mam! Since I mentioned Vickies, you probably guess where the underwear talk is going to come from. That's right, I bought more underwear from Vickies. Did I need it? Hell no. Did I want it? Hell yes! 

After getting home and realizing I wasn't going to do homework for another night, I decided to organize my underwear drawers to accommodate the new undie neighbors. I opened the drawers and almost fainted. Let me paint you a picture. My two very small dresser drawers have been renting their space out to my hundreds of pairs of Victoria Secret undies since I was about 15. 5 some years later, those drawers get pretty darn cramped. I opened that drawer and saw underwear that I didn't even know I had. 

So, I did the logical thing and threw it all on the floor. 

It may not seem like much, but in that picture the top drawer is full of undies and there's some piles off to the side of more than 10 pairs. It was ridiculous. I always say I have the potential to become a cat hoarder one day, but I might switch that over to underwear hoarder. 

"But how cute are they all? It's like a box of kittens." -hoarder

So I piled them all into their specific styles and separated the ones I know I wear from the ones I haven't seen in 5 years. Then I separated those ones, into the ones I would keep and the ones I would throw away. I threw away maybe 7 pairs. Which wasn't nearly as enough as I should have thrown away, but I might wear them one day.....

And I became a bit overwhelmed after a while....


I rolled up the ones I know I don't wear often and put those towards the back of the drawers. I kept the ones I always grab for in the front. Let me tell you, rolling your underpants may seem like a waste of time, but it saves a ton of space and also looks very neat.

I understand the drawer will only look this nice for about a week, but that's not the point. The point is, it looks nice now. :)

adios amigos


P.S. Are you guys getting my emails? If I respond to one of your comments do you get it? Just wondering, because I've sent out a few emails regarding the giveaway long ago and sponsor post and no one has gotten back. Let me know!!

I had to do this with my underwear drawer a few months ago (I'm always always always a sucker for Victoria's Secret deals... even if it's not even a legitimate deal...) and found underwear that I hadn't worn since middle school! Aka the "I'm so cool, I'm not wearing Limited Too underwear anymore!" pairs in the back of the drawer.... awkward!

My roomie freshmen year was a undie hoarder and started to rub off on me!

Glad to know I am not the only one who has a billion panties. I recently bought some drawer organizers from Ikea - made a huge difference!

Yes, I did get your email. Sorry - I've been meaning to respond but have been having a heck of a time finding a photo with me wearing green! Let me know if you still plan to go ahead with the post and I will send i off to you ASAP!

I've been really into VS underwear lately. I think it's my favorite brand of underwear now. I used to wear aerie's and it isn't as comfortable. I love it when they roll out those free underwear coupon. 7/$25 underwear is usually the best deal at VS.
