The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing by Marie Kondo has overtaken my life (in a good way!) Her magical tidying method has changed how I feel about my home and the things in it, and I love sharing my KonMari journey with you. (You can read my introduction and other posts in the series here.)
Folding clothes is an important part of Marie Kondo’s method. I wrote about KonMari folding here, but I found another way to fold socks that may work even better. It’s still the same idea – you fold your socks so they can stand up in a drawer – but the process is slightly different. It’s sock origami, and it works for long socks and short running socks.
This video from Northwest Edible Life shows how to fold long socks:
So much better than rolling them up and stretching the opening of one sock over the the ball!
Many people wear short socks for exercising, and the traditional KonMari folding method won’t work. One of the members of my KonMari Adventures Facebook group (it’s a closed group, but you can ask to join) shared this picture of how she folds her short socks:
Genius! It is easy to fold your socks the KonMari way – I promise! – and your drawers will look so tidy, you’ll want to keep them that way.
