One of the most arduous household tasks is undoubtedly folding laundry.

Now, what if there was a foolproof way to fold everything from your clothing to your sheets (while not losing your mind)?

I know that I’m not the only one who leaves heaps of clean laundry on my bed for a couple of days before I finally get around to folding each individual item and putting them away in their designated drawers. I also know I’m not the only one who would rather sleep on that pile of laundry than dig in and get to folding.

Here’s the thing: if you approach laundry with the right mindset and look at folding not as an annoying task, but as a soothing way of getting your life organized, it could turn into a somewhat palatable household chore (or at least that’s what I have been telling myself).

If that sounds like a bunch of baloney to you, then at least learning how to properly fold your clothing will help you through that laundry hurdle.

Have you been folding your shorts and T-shirts haphazardly for as long as you can remember? I know I have!

The way that organizational expert Marie Kondo folds her clothing is quite simply genius. It will even completely transform how you fold those more difficult pieces like swimsuits.

Watch the video below to see exactly how she does it.
