  • The KonMari method of folding socks involves laying your two socks on top of one another, then folding the pair into thirds (for short socks), fourths (for mid-length socks) or fifths (for crew socks) like you would a letter. You then put them in your drawer upright.
  • The square method is another popular one. First, laying your socks into a cross shape, heels facing up, then folding the toe ends over before tucking them underneath. It requires more work, but will get easier the more you familiar with.
