So……I’ve been staring at a blank screen for an hour now. I have no idea how to make this post sound interesting. It’s about folding towels. I’ve decided I’m not even going to try.
I pinned a blogpost about folding bath towels last week when I was looking for pins on bathroom organisation. Today, I had this big full hamper of towels to fold so I did some more browsing on the same topic. I found this blogpost in which the writer describes her annoyance when her stack of folded towels hangs just over the edge of her shelf. I know, I know – in first-world-problems this one might be the first-worldliest but I do admit: that happens with my towel stacks too and I hate it! My bathroom shelves aren’t very deep either so to make them fit I could fold them in half, in half again, and then in thirds. Coincidentally, that’s how the writer of this blogpost folds her towels too – to get rid of that hanging over nuisance. However, when folded that way I can only fit one stack of four towels on my lower shelf and the shelf is not wide enough to have two stacks next to each other. So today I tweaked her method a bit and I am ready to announce that I’m changing the way I’m folding my towels! Yes, I can’t believe I just wrote that sentence either. I am going for the half/third/third approach – this will create a compact small folded towel of which I can fit six on one shelf! Hurray!
Ok – I have spent way too much time on this text already, let’s just do the pictures.
Here’s the before photo…
…and here’s my chore for the evening:
About my new folding technique – this is what I do now.
Step 1: fold towel in half
Step 2: Fold towel into thirds, lengthways.
Step 3: fold into thirds. sideways
….and here should have been a picture of a successfully half/third/third-folded towel – I forgot to take it. Sorry.
I did take a picture of the end result though:
Pretty huh? So satisfying! Bonus points for now having more room for storing toilet rolls on that same shelf. Awesome.
I’m going to bed now.
