Folding tip 1 - The bundle roll

The bundle roll is a simple technique that can be done with socks or t-shirts. Simply fold your sock in half and then in half again, before wrapping it around your hand like a rope. This method works best if you're packing light and are trying to conserve space. It also looks great on the outside of your bag, making it easy to find when you need it!

Folding tip 2 - The sock stack

The sock stack is a fun way to fold your socks and it's perfect if you want a more organized look. It works best with socks that are all one color, but if you want something more colorful, then go ahead and try it with different colors! This is also a great option for mens ankle socks. Start by laying them out in an upside-down V shape, then fold each side in on top of each other. Once they're folded into a stack, you can place them in your drawer or closet like this.

Folding tip 3 - The shirt fold

This is a great way to fold your socks if you happen to have more than one pair. Simply take one sock and make a straight cut down the middle. Then, take each half and fold it in half width-wise like you would with a shirt. This creates a folded pile on top of your other socks that are waiting their turn in the rotation.
