questionsdo you fold or hang your woot shirts?

I hang them but I keep running out of hangers. So some end up "folded" AKA in a basket somewhere. I've been meaning to go through them and pick out my more favorite ones and keep them in the closet and the rest can be folded. I thought about donating them but my hoarder instincts kick in and I can't do it.

I hang mine, always. It's easier to find what I'm looking for.

@gideonfrost: It's probably not so much hoarding instincts, but that they're irreplaceable. I know to some, the blanks don't matter that much, but to others (cough cough), it's a major deal.

As for organizing - I tri-fold them widthwise, then quarter-fold so a sliver of design still shows. It makes it much easier to find what I'm looking for ... not to mention a basis for games here. The ones that hang here are usually because they're drying.

Fold and stack in the corner with the other 'collectible topical' shirts. They come out of the pile when there is an event that the topic fits. D2D are all over the place!!

Hang, I wear them to work every day and don't want the wrinkles.

I do both. But, the secret to folding is how they're folded. I learned this method from a girl friend in college and haven't looked back.
Fold your shirts and additional time in the middle and put them into your drawer like you would in a filing cabinet. Then none of your shirts will get buried and you can see the front of the shirt so you know exactly which each shirt is.

Here's a good example of what Im talking about: http://bit.ly/OTbzBE

In a drawer, but folded isn't quite the right word. More like crumpled.

Folded, always folded. Otherwise the neck hole stretches out and I show too much chest hair.

All of my clothes are hung up, except for boxers and socks. Hangers are cheap, and my closet is the size of an efficiency apartment.

Lol! I have a woot shirt drawer as well, because I don't have a closet like @rprebel!

@lavikinga: It's one of the good things that came out of last year's fire. I had a say in the design/layout of the new house. :)

@sportster25: That is an AMAZING idea! Thank you! I already went and redid all my shirts.

Here is a great way to fold shirts too: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dNr1oLhZ0zs&feature=related

Currently, I have my most of my t-shirts and polo-type shirts folded in two drawers (the drawers are the deeper ones from a double-width Ikea PAX waredrobe and together hold ~100 shirts).

However, these drawers are already not cutting it and I think I'm going to start using hangers for more than pants and button-down shirts.

I may switch to @sportster25's suggestion the next time I reorganize these drawers... While I doubt I'll get more in them, I won't have to move as much stuff when I want a specific shirt.

T-shirts are the only clothes that I fold instead of hang. I have them stacked by type on shelves above my hanging clothes so that they are easy to see.

I hang the randoms that I'm planning to trade and the rest are folded up in their own special Woot drawer. I am going to try Sportster's idea though, that looks really handy!

I hang a selection of my shirts that I rotate every once in a while; those are the ones that I wear. I store the rest in three boxes: a small one with shirts I'd like to trade, a smaller one with "duplicate" copies of any shirt of which I have more than one copy (only a handful of shirts!) or that I intend to put into the woot quilt that I'll make someday, and a large one with the rest of the shirts that I wear.

@narfcake: being unwilling to part with woot shirts is not necessarily a sign of hoarding, but neither is it exclusionary; as with so much, the thought process behind a set of actions and the consequences of those actions are typically the key to determining whether something is problematic or not.

Glad that many of you are learning a new folding/organization technique .
But,what I think we're all learning is that we buy a LOT of Woot shirts... but there are many us out there!

I hang dry my shirts so just leave them on the hangers after they are dry.

I love my Woot shirts so I treat them well. Hangers all the way! I, too, am running out of space...

I hang mine. But I've got a huge "live in" closet (I've seen dorm rooms smaller) so I hang almost all my clothes. My Woot! shirts are "filed" with all my other printed t-shirts that haven't been demoted to the "wear to mow the lawn or do other housework" status.

I don't have nearly enough closet space to hang them so I fold my woot shirts and put them in a dedicated woot shirt drawer, the same goes for my threadless shirts.

@sportster25: Thanks for the awesome idea!

And you guys with the huge closets, stop bragging! lol

My boyfriend's (hanging) Woot shirt collection is quickly taking over our closet. His solution? Let's move into a bigger house.

Fold. I don't want hanger bumps in the shoulders.

Folded and stuffed in a drawer as best as they'll fit. Most days I just reach in and wear whatever shirt I grab first. If I catch myself washing the same 4-6 shirts over and over, I shuffle them to the bottom of the drawer.

Hang to dry, then folded in a drawer, it's too deep to try the filing cabinet method though. I rotate some out in clear plastic crates with cedar balls in them. Time to put in a new rotation.
