Hi, it’s Ada here again! If you feel you are lacking space in your dresser drawer then this is the perfect do-it-yourself post for you! Hubby has toooons of t-shirts. He usually does the laundry, and I am in charge of putting the clothes away. I hang some, fold some, mysteriously get rid of some (donate pile!). But, we always ended up with an overflow of t-shirts that I had to tame (squish!) into the dresser drawers, until I started filing the t-shirts. Yep, FILING them!  Today’s post I will show you step by step on how you can FOLD and FILE t-shirts to save lots of spac­­­­­­­­e in your drawers. It’s shockingly amazing how much storage space this fold and file t-shirt technique saves in drawers!

MATERIALS

  1. Nothing! With these techniques you don’t need any materials besides t-shirts

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Lay t-shirt so back faces the top
  2. Fold left side to the right
  3. Fold right side to the left
  4. Fold bottom
  5. Fold middle
  6. Fold top

T-shirt is now ready to be filed. How long do these 6 steps take? This process takes SECONDS to do. Seriously! I actually took a stopwatch and timed myself and it took me 15 seconds to fold/file. Easy breezy! Below are the steps with photos, and as you will see our kitten T-Rex helped:

1.  Lay t-shirt so back faces the top (so you can see the front design at the end)

Hmmm, I may end up filing jeans, undies, socks, and sweaters. When storing winter clothes I usually lay them flat in bins, but now that I am a clothing filer connoisseur I may file everything!!! You too? Check out my instagram feed where I added a cute video showing this fold and file technique.
