Folding clothes the right way is an art by itself. If you do not fold clothes the proper way, they end up eating all of your closet space.

Marie Kondo, Japanese organising consultant and author, has carved a niche for herself as the folding expert.

Kondo, also known as KonMari, is known for her vertical folding method which ends up with clothes ‘standing up’ instead of lying flat in drawers yes, drawers. With KonMari’s method, multiple clothes will fit in drawers. Every clothing item has a special method of folding to a tiny, rectangular size. It makes everything easy to spot and hard to mess up.
