Organize Clothes by Vertical Folding

My drawers were always overflowing with clothing until I undertook to reorganize them via the KonMari method. There I learned how useful it really is to fold clothes in that singular way, and not much more effort!


The way I do it now is

  1. T-shirts: just as described, folded and stored vertically so that you can always see which shirt is where

  2. Undies and undershirts: what worked best for me (especially for the undershirts) was to roll them up tightly by folding the piece of clothing small, and wrapping it tightly, as if I were rolling up measuring tape.

  3. Socks: I fold them as usual, but store them vertically also which I find optimizes space

Whether you choose to follow her methodology to the letter, or alter it to fit your experience, I guarantee that rethinking clothing storage will revolutionize your approach to your wardrobe.

well, the things that DO wrinkle i do hang, but mostly i find they have less wrinkles wiht this method! IE the ones that get rolled v folded lose that crease that they get

This is a great idea. Being a person with only about 30 outfits, I hang my clothes. I always seem to have other things to put in dressers like yarn and fabric!!

have you heard of the minimalist/capsule wardrobe movement? It's actually prety brilliant having so few clothes - as long as you love them and they look great!

These are great ideas. I roll my camisoles/tank tops and keep them in a small drawer. I always wear another top over them, so wrinkles don't matter. I fold knit tops (long sleeve, sweatshirts, etc.) and put them on my closet shelf by category. I have labeled the edge of the shelf so I know which pile to check. I'm vertically challenged at 5'0 tall and need a stool to reach the top shelf.


Organizing the tops by category I know where to get the type of top I want quickly. I have several pairs each of black and navy pants. To separate them, I label the shelf above and know where to put them after washing and/or wearing. Sometimes it's difficult to tell them apart when the closet is dark. I separate them with other color pants, like gray. This works quite well for me. I enjoy reading others' ideas.
