    Fold t-shirts easily into a nice shape for packing

    Don't know if this has been mentioned here before or not, but in the following video they demonstrate a method for folding t-shirts that is not only fast, but ends up being the perfect shape for packing. My wife and I have been following this method for several years now and it's fantastic for trips:

    I hope it's as easy as it looks!

    It's *very* easy once you've done it a few times, and only takes seconds per shirt. The pattern is:

    - Grab near the middle with the left hand.
    - Grab near the collar with the right hand, and then draw what you've grabbed down to the bottom, grabbing there as well.
    - Lift.

    Thanks for that! Someone in my Twitter feed tweeted about this ages ago, but I lost the bookmark and had been meaning to search for it. Now I don't have to
    Work EDC: SE + S19/CP/MB
    Leisure: SCBs, MCBs, FJN, Swift, lots of YSSs
    Travel: WF + Pilot or SA, with SE/SCB
    General organisation: More pouches, stuff sacks and cubes than you can shake a keystrap at!
    Favourite TB colours: aubergine, forest (sniff!), linen, wasabi, UV
    Hoping for: A new dyneema colour for YSSs; a Linen Side Effect; the return of Portable Culture!
