I wish I learned this trick earlier so I could have taught my children to fold their clothing correctly.  They don’t even keep their clothes in a drawer though (yes, they have bureaus, they just don’t keep clothes in them).  Most of their shirts are piled in a laundry basket.  Oh, well.

  1. Lay your t-shirt out flat.

    No explanation really needed here 🙂

  2. Fold in Half Width-Wise

    It should be folded so both halves are matched together.

  3. Fold Again.

    For this step, you need to imagine a square, and how wide that square will be inside your drawer.  If your “end folding” does stack correctly, this is the reason why.  Sometimes, you will need to fold in half, but other time, you will need to fold less than half. Does this make sense? It takes practice to get the right width.

  4. Tuck in the Sleeve.

    So it does not stick out and cause your square to be funky. Your shirt should now be one long strip.

  5. Fold in Half Lengthwise

    Now you still have a long strip, just in half.

  6. Fold into a Third.

    After folding in half, then you want to fold into thirds. At this point, you can roll your shirt, too. Such as, if you are putting your shirt into a luggage case.

  7. Fold Over Again to Complete!

I can’t seem to get anyone else in the house on board with this idea, but at least my dresser drawer is nice and pretty. (Hehe, can you see my heart cutout t-shirt refashion?)

For bonus points, separate your shirts by color.

  2. My husband folds his clothes like this and I always thought it was weird. However, it is really smart and reduces wrinkles. Your post confirmed that he’s not crazy and that rolling is good! Ha!
