  1. I have the Flip Fold and it is the perfect device.

  2. Newsweek had an article recently ‘ICrazy” with similar research results. http://www.advisory.com/Daily-Briefing/2012/07/12/iCrazy-Newsweek-links-internet-mental-illness :)

  3. thanks for mentioning Picplum. will try it

  4. Why buy a Flip Fold when you can do this?

  5. Flip and fold is still quicker and makes everything a uniform size, whether it is my sweatshirt or my wife’s t-shirt. But yeah, I guess if you wanted to spend that sort of time to be a pro, go for it. Laundry is simply a hamster wheel to be overcome.

  6. thanks for the cheatsheet hint – perfect app!
