Before I worked in a boutique, I rarely put my clothes away. I’d wash them, they’d remain in the laundry basket all crumpled up until I wore them, and I generally knew it was time to do laundry again when all of the clothes had made it from the laundry basket to the floor.
Then I learned the proper ways to fold and hang my clothing. I worked at the boutique for several years, and throughout that time I still only folded and hung at work, and my bedroom was still such a disaster. But when I stopped working there to take up my current day job, I finally put my skills to use in my own daily life.
Now my room is mostly clutter free — there are always a couple of things here + there that don’t belong, but for the most part the clothes make it into the drawers in a timely manner.
So now that it’s not hypocritical for me to offer this advice, I can attempt to demystify the process of folding a shirt properly in hopes that I help you attain a clutterless bedroom, too.
This will work for any top at all, even dresses. So go wild, guys! There’s no time like now to reorganize! Happy spring cleaning!
