It seems that the more I work on organizing my house the more I find that needs improvement. I thought I was doing pretty well with the fundamentals, such as sorting and grouping like items and eliminating clutter, but then I found that I needed a refresher course in basic "folding".
As you can see my dresser drawers are just a little over stuffed. This one holds T-shirts, and I know that I have mentioned before that I don't wear a lot of T-shirts, but I do have several that I have collected from here and there. Not long ago I used one of my T-shirts to make a tote bag and some day I think it would be fun to make a quilt from T-shirts, but in the meantime, they are stuffed in my dresser drawer.
I'm always looking out for a more efficient way of doing things around the house, and I think Darkroom and Dearly definitely has a better way of organizing dresser drawers. After seeing how much space can be saved by folding and storing shirts in a different way, I got busy and reorganized my T-shirt drawer.
Here's the simple fold that makes the shirt fit into the drawer in a better way:
1. Lay the shirt out flat with the logo facing up.
2. Fold in half lengthwise, with the logo still facing out.
4. Fold the shirt in half by folding the bottom half up, with the logo still showing
5. Then fold it in half again. This will be the last fold you will need if your drawers are DEEP, but my dresser drawers are shallow.
6. I folded the shirt one more time, with the logo still showing, then just stacked all the shirts side by side in the drawer.
