I have always liked to fold clothes. There is a sense of accomplishment in getting that huge ole pile of laundry into neat stacks and ready for delivery back into the different closets!
I must look happy doing it, because numerous people have commented on it! And I must do it well, too – nothing else would explain those “like in the Army”-comments;)
However, little did I know that one simple idea, one little step further would bring the revolution of my handling of clothes?
- Closet-time is the only resting-time for your clothes! Grant it to them.
- Every piece of clothing should only have to bear its own weight, not be squished or stretched or twisted.
- Little “standing-by-its-own” packages do the trick!
- Sorting by color pleases the eye and makes them look even more valuable.
Unbelievable how well this works! Suddenly there is more space, a better overview and finally the chance to get whichever piece of clothing out without destroying “the pile”! Even those wire-drawers, which I never knew how to use them, get into real action, holding, for example, up to twenty mens’ XL-sized shirts easily.
It really is simple.
