How to Fold Sweaters to Save Space in Drawers?

I love putting sweaters in drawers, since you can make them visible and the access is easy. You can pick what to wear without making a huge mess. With the KonMarie method, you will save a lot of space, so let’s check it out!

  • First, since we are following Marie Kondo, she always advises that you get rid of the things you won’t use anymore. You can either donate them or sell them, depending on what you prefer. This will make space for the new sweaters.
  • Let’s start folding! Grab a sweater and place it on the table. Start with the right side of the clothing, and fold it going to the left, as shown on the photo below.
  • Make sure that the sleeve is nicely done, since it may crease if you don’t fold it correctly.
  • Do the same with the other side of the sweater, this time going from the left to the right. See picture number 3.

How to Fold Sweaters to Save Space in a Closet?

Using the method that we have shown you above, just skip the last step of the folding. That way your sweaters will not be bulky, just like in the drawers, but they will be thin. That way you will save space in your closet and the display will be more visible. The goal here is to make the access easy, so once you need a sweater, if you pull it you won’t make a mess. Try to make the sweater look as “thin” as possible with your hands. The perk is also that it won’t crease and it will not ruin the fabric. This folding method is effective for hoodies as well and for t-shirts.

Our advice at the end, once you are done with the folding, is to take your time and organize everything. You can either do it by color, or depending on which sweaters you wear more often. That will also save you a lot of time when choosing what to wear. Everyone can have a nice looking closet for this Fall/Winter season! All you have to do is put a little bit of effort!
