“As a Professional Organiser ‘don't put it down, put it away’ is one of my five strategies for keeping organised,” says Jo. “But some things aren't that easy to put away, such as shopping bags.”
“Folding is a space-saving and visually pleasing way to put things away - whether it's T-Shirts or a tent. The folding concept has been well employed by the army for decades and made popular with Marie Kondo,” says Jo.
“There are many ways to approach it. To keep it simple, and regardless of the shape we're folding, flatten, try to make it a rectangle and fold edges inwards, place in a drawer, basket or container ready for next time.”
