How To Fold A Shirt To Save Space

20131228_225805

I am sharing how I fold a shirt to save space in my small drawers. This is a great method because you can see each shirt when you open the drawer.

No more moving shirts around or having to remove some to see what is underneath. This process may seem time consuming but when you get the hang of it, it will be done as fast as your other way of folding clothes. Not to mention you will be able to put more clothes in your drawer this way. Let’s get started….

Let’s start out with a simple undershirt but you can use any shirt. First, you want to lay the shirt out flat

Fold the side of the shirt over. A good stop spot is 1 or 2 inches from the collar (pic below), fold the sleeve back.  Then repeat on the opposite side.

This is a good amount of space from the collar to the fold. The more space you leave, the bigger the shirt, the more space it takes up in the drawer.

After both sides are folded, you want to fold from the bottom up about 3-4 times depending on the length of the shirt.  This shirt I am using is a men’s XL under shirt.

This is how it should look folded. When your placing it in the drawer, do not lay them flat (it takes up to much space), you want to sit them straight up in the drawer.

If you are using regular colored or printed t-shirts, this is a great way to fold.  You have more space and you don’t have to go through all the t-shirts that are in the drawer to see the one you want. All the colors are right there when you open the drawer.
