Maximizing Drawer Space: How To Fold Little Kids’ Shirts

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!

  1. I’ve been folding my kids’ clothes this way since they were born… I thought I was the only one!! it makes perfect sense to me. Also, I don’t fold or roll their underwear. i just stack them
