Hi all,

I am reading The Life Changing magic of tidying by Marie Kondo and I am embarrassed to say that I am totally baffled at her explanation on how to fold clothes/tights/socks.
Does anyone have a easy peasy/ idiots guide way to describe this to me? I'm sorry for sounding so dim confused

Ooh, I want to know too. I've only just heard about this... Obviously it is going to solve all my housekeeping problems...<hopeful>

I'm really enjoying the book so far and I'm hoping it will help me solve my housekeeping problems too (Too many to mention lol)
But the folding method has confused me confused

The folding methods are all on You Tube.

I discovered this miraculous folding thing after reading a thread about wardrobe space on MN last week. Someone posted the You Tube link.

I spent the weekend re-doing all the drawers.

If I keep waffling, someone might come and answer...

I fold my socks completely inside themselves like a ball, so my drawer is full of little sock bullets.
Pants are folded into a playing card size and stacked on edge, so I can see colour and take out a pair without messing up the others.
Can't imagine folding tights...

Not sure what Marie suggests for tights, but I fold tights in half, then roll up into a ball and lay flat in drawers. Have found this easiest to see the different colours and makes it easy to grab them without them getting tangled up in other pairs.

I love the tshirt way she does. I used to do it for my nanny children and they loved seeing all their tshirts and tops when opening their drawers! I don't have drawers myself, but would do it if I did!
