Folding Your StuffItems that are best folded on shelves: jeans, sweaters (think bulkier items). Use shelf dividers to keep your folded piles from toppling over. If you don't want to go out and buy shelf dividers, repurpose open containers and bins.Pliio is the newest closet tool on the market; it promises to do the folding for you. I just bought two sets for my T-shirts and I am one happy customer.A large, flat surface will make folding seem less like work while making your clothes neat. An ironing board surface will work in a pinch, as it's the perfect height.
