Of course, organizing the closet meant I had to refold everything all nice and neat. I am a pretty good clothing folder, but I got to thinking that it sure would be nice to have one of those Flip and Fold shirt folders I saw them using in a department store the other day. I saw one a long time ago on an infomercial, but I was surprised when I saw it actually being used in a store. Come to find out, you can purchase them through Amazon.
Yesterday though, I didn't have a gadget to help me fold all my clothes, but I did get the idea to go to YouTube to see if there were any videos on how to fold a shirt. You betcha! You can find a video on just about anything you want. (Love YouTube!) Interestingly enough, did you know that there is a Japanese shirt folding technique? They do specialize in origami, so why not shirt folding, too! Here is the video I watched. You can actually get American versions of the video, but I sort of liked this Japanese version. Good grief, she is good at it!
This shirt folding technique is just crazy, but I had to try it out. I love my shirts to be folded really flat like this. Here is my result. I would say it worked fairly well.
Although it works great for t-shirts and other short sleeved shirts, it doesn't really work for long sleeve shirts or sweaters. You can find proper folding techniques for those too on YouTube. Try it out. If you can perfect this Japanese shirt folding technique, you will be pleased with the results.
