Alternate Direction When Stacking Clothes

When you stack any type of clothing in drawers, alternate the direction. For example, when folding tee shirts, place one in normal position but top it with another folded tee shirt that is turned around. In other words, that top of the tee shirt should be at the bottom. Now place the next tee shirt in the normal position. Alternate this and it will take up less space in the drawer.


Another idea, using the above method, instead of stacking clothing is to place them upright. For example, tee shirts. I fold them small enough so they fit in the drawers upright. They are easier to see plus they take up less space. I don't fold socks in "twos" but stack them together, using the above method. I grab two when I need them. This only works well when you using the same style and type of sock.

Great idea. Kind of like alternating the spine of a binder with the opening when putting in a box. Another cool idea is to roll tees, etc. They teach that in some military schools, and thing get creases in them less, and tend to store easier.
