KonMari Folding Hack

So I’ve been organizing my t-shirts long before I learned about the KonMari method. But it just so happens that this is where my KonMarie-ing began and it sparks so much joy!

Now you might be asking how do you fold your t-shirts that way? Why? Easy! I use the Miracle Folder which makes folding a breeze and of course I’ll give you a step-by-step below. As for why, I used to fold my t-shirts the “normal way” and lay them all on top of each other in one big pile which basically made it impossible to get a shirt in the middle or anywhere else besides the top of the pile. And I won’t even mention attempting to try to find a certain t-shirt. By folding them like this I can fit all of them in one drawer and find exactly what I’m looking for in seconds. As you can see in the picture below, by using the Miracle Folder I get a perfect uniform fold every time.

Now here is how you use the Miracle Folder…

Step 1: Lay your t-shirt face down onto the folder. (I lay it face down so that you can easily see the front of the shirt when in the drawer)

Step 2: Fold the bottom of the shirt up so it’s even with the bottom of the folder.

Step 3: Pull the left side of the folder to the middle and return the folder back to it’s original position.

Step 4/5: Pull the right side of the folder to the middle and return the folder back to it’s original position. Then fold the excess sleeve under so it’s no longer hanging off the main rectangle of the shirt.
