The Folding Book by Janelle Cohen

I have worked on being more efficient in my household tasks for a while now, to the extent that I am one of those people who watch the forwards with small tips to make certain activities easier. My mother recently sent me a video of ways to fold clothes that I found entertaining (however weird that might sound to an average person who stumbled on to this review).
Basically, I approached this book with interest and hoped to get something new from it. The issue with the concept is that, like many such things, folding is better understood and appreciated in video format. That said, the author did a great job in translating that into written form. The diagrams are simple to understand, practice and remember. They are divided into sections and can be perused based on your interest in certain things that bother you more than others. I found that many of the tricks I am already using were in the book. I only took away one or two new things but still felt satisfied with the book. It provides exactly the information that the title promises. If you are new to the idea that you want to improve your folding and storing of clothes, large and small, this is a good place to begin.
I received an ARC thanks to Netgalley and the publishers, but the review is entirely based on my own reading experience.

  1. Interesting! I picked up about rolling your tops and underpants into sort of tall ovals that can go in your drawers neatly and all be visible and still do that (even though I don’t agree with her instructions on throwing out books!).
