When Diggory’s services are engaged to declutter a bedroom, whether it be an adults or a child’s, the decluttering and organising of the clothes is a major part of this process. For those items such as t-shirts, jumpers, leggings and in some cases jeans, there is a way in which to fold them to maximise the space available.
The most common way of storing our t-shirts is flat, stacked on top of each other, but as you may have noticed, rummaging to find the one you want often messes up the pile in very short order.
In order to avoid this, I have found that the best solution is to fold them, using a Magic Clothes Folder so that they take up less space and your t-shirts remain ordered. You can get an adult and child version, I have both, and I take them to the client’s home to fold when needed.
This is actually one of my very favourite things I do, I love organising the drawers and folding the clothes correctly and seeing the joy on the faces of my clients as I show them what has been achieved…the putting away of laundry is no longer a chore!
One young client aged 6 was overjoyed with her organised drawers, she exclaimed “Finally I will be able to find my leggings mummy!”
Firstly take the t-shirt and place it face down onto the ‘Clothes Folder’ and flatten it out so it is nice and smooth. Then take the left hand side of the ‘Folder’ and fold it in, do the same for the right hand side of the folder. And just so the right sleeve does not poke out, take it and fold it in half back on itself.
Then take the bottom of the t-shirt which is most likely hanging of the end of the ‘Clothes Folder’ and fold it up so that it is level with the bottom of the ‘Clothes Folder’. Then you take the bottom of the ‘Clothes Folder’ and fold that onto of the t-shirt.
You will then have a perfectly folded t-shirt. What you do then is fold it in half again and that is now ready to be stood up in the drawer. Not only will you find that you can get a 3rd more in the drawer, but the drawer will remain tidy and all logos are plain to see.
Keep ‘types’ together, for example, short sleeved t-shirts in one row, long sleeved t-shirts in another row, leggings and jumpers in a separate drawer.
Transparent organisation is especially important for children, because if it’s not easily organised, they will become frustrated and mess will soon follow. You could even label the drawers, T-shirts, Leggings, and Jumpers to make it even clearer; and for for little ones that don’t read, use pictures to show what is in the drawer.
