Clothes Folding and Organizing

One of my childhood chores was folding clothes, which wasn’t easy because my mom is very particular. The towels had to all be folded with rounded edges out, and the seams on clothes had to match up perfectly. Sounds strict, but I grew up in a household where you took pride in every thing you did, even when doing small things like folding clothes.

There’s something wonderful about opening your linen closet seeing a stack of neatly folded sheets and linens. I know fitted sheets give people “fits” when it comes to folding.  Here’s some tips on how to fold sheets and other clothing.

Here’s an organizing idea for your jeans. I have a ton of jeans and always have trouble differentiating between my skinnies vs. boot cut ones without pulling out each pair.

Here’s some freaky t-shirt folding!

I love how organized the folded clothes are in this closet. I think it would be A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E for my little girls’ rooms! I also love the bracket shelves and pretty salmon pink color they used.

Have a great weekend!


  1. The fitted sheet video is brilliant! Thanks for sharing!!

  2. Wow! What a great post! Now I want to do two things:
    A). Stop rolling fitted sheets into a messy ball, and
    B). Buy more jeans to make my organized jean drawer look awesome.

    Haha! :)

  3. I'm big on perfect folding too. I actually use a cutting board to make everything symmetrical when I fold...why did I just admit that? I need coffee.

  4. Strangest thing. That is how Michael folds his shirts! One of his roommates in college did it that way and he thought it was cool so started doing his shirts. He still does it now. Refuses to have them folded any other way. Luckily he loves doing laundry so I don't have to learn how to do it :)

  5. That jeans idea is great! I'm always look for new ways to keep mine :) Happy Thanksgiving!
