Fold Socks Instead Of Rolling Them For Better Organisation

Video: How do you put away your socks? You probably roll them, right? Perhaps with the Army Ranger roll? Folding your socks into origami-like squares might be more space-efficient. The video above posted by YouTuber Klara Egilson shows you this new sock-folding technique. Basically, you lay the socks perpendicularly to each other and fold and tuck them into each other. This not only prevents the stretching that happens with the rolling method, it makes organising your socks a little easier, since you're dealing with flat squares rather than balls. I imagine this is how Marie Condo tidies up her socks.

This method doesn't work for short socks, unfortunately, and it does take more time, but it also looks kind of fun — as far as you can connect "laundry" with "fun".

    I just throw them in the drawer these days... I may always wear odd socks but at least i dont waste ten minutes of my life trying to organise something barely anyone ever sees!!!

    On a side note my wife used to iron her undies and tea towels before we got together

    Wow, that has got to be the cutest draw i've ever seen!

    Wow, that was incredibly slow even at that fast speed. Who rolls their socks anyway? I just tuck one into the other, takes about 0.5 seconds. I don't live in Japan so I guess my sock drawer is bigger than a matchbox.

    I think that if you have to fold socks differently to make space then you have major storage issues.
