Marie Kondo is the author of the best-selling book The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, which has become a popular go-to guide for those looking to make their workspaces neat and tidy. In her book are the KonMarie methods of folding clothes, which inspired LA blogger Aileen of Lavendaire to create videos for.

First, you should fold the clothes vertically to help you see your clothes at one glance. Naturally, there are also clothes that need to be hung up, such as dresses and coats. Next, make sure you organize your closet so it rises to the right, meaning the long, heavy items are on the left, and the ligher and shorter items are on the right side. As for organizing little baubles, make good use of shoeboxes to store them in. And as for bigger items like bags, store them inside bags to take up less space.
