You can get a foldy thing... I have no idea what its called and I'm at work so I can't find the link, will try and track it down... its a little plastic thing where you lay a shirt on it, then just bend it at the hinges and presto... folded shirt!

I really want to get one at some point... saw it on big bang theory and just thought I want one...

LOL! same, crap at folding. That's why my wardrobe has always been such a mess. Clothes never stay in place. Really interested if there is a folding device

I'f you're trying to fold shirts/blouses you could use a magazine to help fold square around the shoulders then slide it out. Sheets are more problematic

Try not to be perfectionist about these things easy said by a man Hold on why am I writing about folding clothes. I must have taken leave of my senses this evening! 8-)

Just take it slow and be prepared to re-fold if needed. That is what I have to do.

My best mate said last week "Calum it appears that you throw your clothes in the direction of the cupboard and hope they fold on the way" I can't fault his logic!!

I struggle with folding paper, particularly with getting it to fold straight.

I have given up on folding clothes now and usually roll them up or hang them.
