It’s a habit that I picked up working in men’s clothing. Folded clothing, perfectly stacked is a joy to behold. Unfortunately, it won’t stay that way. When the dreaded day comes to refold the seventy-five sweaters on their shelves, when the disarray becomes troubling and difficult to behold, it’s time to get out the cutting board.
Yes the cutting board. I use a plastic one that I bought at a dollar store. It’s mid-sized, not too long, not too short. And, it makes a perfect folding board. You don’t even have to unwrap it from the shrink wrap.
So, until that blissful day when we can all afford help, make it easy on yourself. Use the right tool for the right job; in this case, a cutting board.
