How To Fold T-Shirts: Simple Trick For Organizing Your Shirt Drawer
Do you feel like your shirt drawers are out of control, with lots of messy t-shirts just shoved and stuffed in there?
It is easy for these drawers to get out of control, but here's a simple trick to get your shirts organized and make it easy for you to find the one you want when you're getting dressed in the morning.
It all has to do with the way you fold your shirts and put them in the drawer.
(Please note, that as always I also suggest decluttering your dresser or other clothing drawers, and you can read my tips about that decluttering mission in the linked article. However, even with decluttered drawers, this folding technique can still really improve the overall organization of your drawers!)
Instead of just folding them haphazardly and then placing one on top of the next you can instead fold your t-shirts into a rectangle or square shape and then file them on their side, almost like file folders, to get the result above.
The picture was sent in by a reader, Jennifer, who obviously achieved a dramatic result with just this little trick.
Below is a video which gives you detailed instructions on how to fold t-shirts this way.
Now you may be wondering, now that you've watched the video, whether this method actually works in the long run. See below for how this method for folding has worked for another reader, for her child's t-shirt drawer, for several months now.
*** Update: Several commenters below said they thought that using a flip and fold board, or some similar product was faster than the folding method shown in the video. Yeah, it just might be. Just depends on your preference. You can use one and still place the shirts in the drawers using the method shown if you'd like! Hey, if it works for you, great! *** End Update
