The Underwear Thread (Seriously Serious Poll) no pics

How do you fold your socks and undies, that is the question laid out to you.

Fold socks, don't fold undies.

Welcome to the dark side of BF. You will vote in stupid polls more and more often and you will post in Foo more and more often. Soon, you will notice your soul slowly leaving you, and then, one day you'll wake up and realize you no longer have a soul, it has been replaced with something more evil then you could ever possibly imagine. This is what we in Foo like to call, "the awakening of your inner jsharr."

That was an option. I didn't ask why you don't fold them...

Ahh crap, I obviously still have too much sushi and gin and tonic in me from last night. Isn't that how bad things on the internet start? and I'm supposed to go to work.

I only voted because I just recently updated my closet with an Elfa system,
so everything has its place, even my riding gear....

I'm trying to figure out a system where I don't just keep using the same shirts I dumped into the top of the drawer.

You left out the wears socks but no undies option. That is my actual preference. Just socks, nothing else.

no, that's actually off camera to the right, where there's a closet for clothing that can't be folded and clothing that just can't fit in the drawer.

I roll my boxers and my socks. The socks I just lay one on top of the other and roll from toe to the other end.

Boxers I hold by the waist band, tri fold and then roll.

Unless they're pictures of you so dressed in a Barns & Noble.
You would not stand out enough to be recognized in a WalMart.
