Marie Kondo, who doesn't know her by now? Yes, it's the expert of folding, also known as the Konmari method. Each item will be slightly different in terms of how many times it must be folding to achieve that shape. The garment’s size and the fabric’s bulk will affect the outcome. You need to experiment a few times. When your clothes are folded this way, they can be tucked into rows, side-by-side, in a drawer. If your drawer isn’t totally full it helps to use a shoe box to help things stand upright.
Kondo says she’s had a lifelong obsession with carefully curating her belongings. In fact, it started when she was just a little girl and would scour through any and all of her mother’s homemaking magazines, researching other tidying methods as much as she could. She also explained how in her home country of Japan, while there was a large collection of tidying, decluttering, and organizing books in the national library, she wasn’t allowed in until age 18, so she spent her 18th birthday there. By the time she was 19, friends were paying her to declutter their rooms and houses while she was studying sociology at Tokyo Woman’s Christian University.
