Take a look at your wardrobe. Does it make you cringe? – No, wait. Let me rephrase that. Would it make your mum cringe?
If the answer is yes, then you’ve come to the right place! Neat garment folding does not have to be just for retail workers and the obsessive compulsive, you can have a neatly organised custom t-shirts drawer, as well!
Learning how to properly fold a tee might sound like a waste of time, but you’d be surprised by the benefits of having an organised wardrobe. A uncluttered drawer saves time in the long run, allows you to fit more stuff and extends the life of your pieces.

Once folded perfectly, your t-shirts can be stored in a smart way, allowing you to get a better grasp at all the garments you own. Whenever to put them on, they’ll look like they’ve just been ironed.
Save time by folding your t-shirts while standing
Life too short to fold a t-shirt, we hear you say? Not if you can do it in seconds, and still end up with a perfect result. You won’t even need a flat surface to fold your t-shirts using this method, you can do it standing up!
How to fold your t-shirts the Japanese way
The Japanese are known for their neatness and their t-shirt folding techniques are no exception. You might want to try one extra fold at the end to help your t-shirts fit into your drawer. This will make it easier to see them all and you won’t have to root around at the bottom of the pile looking for your favourite one and in the process mess up your immaculately arranged drawer.
Folding: Military style
This one looks a bit like you’ve screwed your t-shirt up in a ball, but it really does work in terms of eliminating the creases and saving space. This method is particularly useful when traveling as it saves a lot of space in your suitcase.
Folding long-sleeved t-shirts
Oh, no. Just when we were getting the hang of it! Here come the long-sleeved t-shirts! Worry not, organising consultant Marie Kondo is here to help you. The method is basically the same, with just a couple of extra folds to ensure you don’t end up with the arms flapping out of the sides of your cleverly folded garment. Of course, you can also hang them in your wardrobe, but why not save that space for other garments and sort your drawers or shelves into long and short-sleeved t-shirts?
