Growing up….and never knowing how to do these until NOW!


I never knew how to do any of these tutorials! I love the name of the article “25 Tutorials to Teach You to Fold Things Like an Actual Adult.” That’s Buzzfeed for you but it’s useful and a total visual (photos) step-by-step instructions. The article shows you how to do the following things:

  1. How to fold a fitted sheet
  2. How to fold a grocery bag neatly (looks like a paper football)
  3. How to fold a Plastic Bag as a lunch bag
  4. How to perfectly fold a t-shirt
  5. Fold a bag of chips (securely and nothing falls out)
  6. How to fold a dress shirt (been needing this for years!)
  7. How to fold a bath towel (to store in a closet)
  8. How to fold a bath towel you plan to hang up (that one I figured out a while ago; works on hand towels too)
  9. How to fold baby clothes (I need this for my toddler’s clothes!)
  10. How to tuck non-skinny jeans into booths (not sure on this since it looks like it would annoy the crap out of my ankle)
  11. How to fit a king pillowcase on to a standard pillow (also figured this out a while ago; we switched from a queen to a king bed; yes, this works on queen pillows too)
  12. How to fold sports bras
  13. How to fold a napkin: a single pocket
  14. How to fold a napkin: (fancy) three pockets
  15. How to fold a napkin: A bow tie napkin
  16. How to fold men’s underwear (Been needing this for years! Yay! Gonna try this tonight!)
  17. How to fold a sweater (I wonder how well this works on those bulky sweaters; I’ll let you know when I try it.)
  18. How to fold a paper airplane (yes, it actually flies)
  19. How to fold a tank top (I could never get it to fold right when I was nursing)
  20. How to fold a burrito (just like they do at restaurants so NOTHING falls out; watched and learned this out when I started eating at Moe’s Southwest Grill)
  21. How to fold almost any gift (where was then at christmas?! Gonna bookmark it for next year)
  22. How to turn a note (or letter) into an envelope (this is for a standard letter size (or A4) piece of paper; needed this in high school)
  23. How to make a toga from a bed sheet (I’ve made sarongs but not togas)
  24. How to fold a newspaper (I didn’t know there was a proper way and this doesn’t look like it would work on the Sunday newspaper–super thick)
  25. How to properly fold the American flag (Always wondered; learned in Girl Scouts but forgot)

I really recommend at least skimming through it. Some things you think you may know and not realize that you didn’t, until you see it. Enjoy!
