STEP 2：Starting from the bottom rim of the shirt, fold the shirt upwards into three equal segments
STEP 3：Press on the folded shirt to maintain its shape
STEP 4：Stack up a pile of t-shirts or place them in a big drawer vertically

2: US Army Ranger Roll Folding Hack
As the name suggests, this is the method used by the US army to fold clothes. When the U.S. military sets off for missions, they need to fit life essentials into a backpack and so this method keeps shirts neat and compact.
STEP 1： First, fold the bottom rim outwards, leaving a 1.5 to 2-inch margin
STEP 2：Next, fold the two sides of the shirt inwards to the middle
STEP 3：From the top (neck) of the shirt, slowly roll the shirt towards the bottom, making sure the wrap is tight
STEP 4：Roll over the flipped margin in the bottom and wrap the fabric over the whole shirt, turning it into a burrito-like shape
Rolling clothes into a cylinder saves up on space and makes it compact. Remember to roll in the shirt tightly so that it can also straighten any creases!
3: Pouch Folding Method

STEP 2: Fold the waistband until one-third of the length of the pants
STEP 3: Starting from the foot holes of the pants, fold upwards until it meets the waistband
STEP 4: Flip the whole thing over
STEP 5: Open the pouch formed along the waistband
