I’ve been folding our kids shirts a slightly different-from-the-norm way for almost nine years, and it’s a great method to maximize drawer space. This will work with little kids’s t-shirts, long sleeve shirts, and polos, etc., until about size 8 (when the shirts get wider than the dresser drawer is deep).
Rather than folding the shirt in the typical way (above), which does not take up the whole depth of a typical dresser drawer and is more bulky, thereby not allowing as tall of a stack of shirts…
Try folding this way (above), which takes up a better space in the drawer (more depth, less height), is less bulky allowing for more shirts in a stack, and–depending on the size of your child–can even allow you to fit an extra row of stacked shirts in a drawer.
Huzzah! That’s a bit of all right!
So, any other mamas out there have tips on organizing drawers and maximizing space? Do tell!
