Fold your way to an organized home! Home organization professional Janelle Cohen encourages you through this basic organization technique with expertise and humor for a process that is less stressful and more fun.

If organizing your home seems like a huge undertaking, leaving you feeling overwhelmed even before you’ve begun, there is a simple thing you can do to make it manageable: folding. The simple act of folding is great for saving space, creating attractive drawers and shelves, and editing your belongings. In The Folding Book, Janelle guides you through all the folds you could ever imagine and more—including the dreaded fitted sheet—with step-by-step photos and instructions and her helpful tips and tricks.

In this visually stunning book, you will learn how to expertly fold over 100 items in all their incarnations:
  • Clothing and accessories
  • Infant, toddler, and children’s clothing and accessories
  • Linens and towels (bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen)
  • Clothing and accessories for travel
Along with all the folding techniques, Janelle shares her wisdom on how to easily maintain this organization and create an organization system that will not only make a positive impact on your home but also your life.
