Between Woot and Threadless, I have close to a hundred shirts and am having a hard time keeping it all neat. They basically end up in a pile smooshed over to one side of my bed.

Just curious what others out there do. Do you keep them neatly folded in a dresser? On shelves? Hang them? I came across this suggestion online about rolling them into tubes and securing with a rubber band. Trying to figure out what would work best to keep these organized. Would just love to hear thoughts!

Mine are on shelves, arranged by color:


It makes it reasonably easy to find a specific shirt if I need to.

Try numerically by primary Pantone ink color.

I tried to take a cell pic of my collection, but it seems to have gotten lost somewhere between my phone and photobucket.
I hang most of my (well over 100) woot (and some teefury, threadless, etc.) shirts. I got one of those cheap 2 rod clothing racks at walmart, and keep the shirts ok for work on one bar, and NSFW on the other. I keep holiday/seasonal shirts on a shelf. My husband keeps his rolled up in standing and hanging wine racks.

Wine racks! I didn't think of that. Very cool idea.

Mine are presently in two stacks of plastic stacking drawers (NYC grime & dust gets on *everything* otherwise.) I subdivided them based on 1) shirts I wear the most/least often, then 2) by colour.

The new 'filing system' has only been in place for less than a week ... still waiting to see just how well it will work out.

I use what I like to call the "floor" method. What I do is I throw all my shirts on the floor, and then wear one when I feel like it. It's actually pretty useful.

I keep my modest collection in a normal sized closet, sorted by color.

Mine are slowly moving other clothes out of drawers so I've been half trying to figure out an alternate solution.

Like Poe? Of course you do, you're here ; ) Try my new mystery novel:

I have surrendered my closet to woot shirts. All my closet clothes are now sitting on my kitchen table. Thank goodness I've never used it for an actual meal, I might miss it.

Heh, I feel less guilty about finally devoting one whole armoire drawer to t-shirts. 'Tis organized haphazardly, according to whatever comes out of the dryer in whatever order. Oftentimes I'll try a shirt on and decide against it for the day/outfit/mood, taking it off and and folding it back into the drawer, inside-out. Most of the drawer is unrecognizable, then.

that's a pretty nifty idea. i should think about that though thanks to my stupidity i'd also have to write a note of which ones i have too. i have the 2nd largest bedroom, but the smallest closet so right most of mine are stuffed in some rubbermaid container wih a few in a drawer.

I'm thinking maybe hanging would be best. Quicker than folding and easier to see. However, I'm worried about my t-shirts getting those "shoulder bumps" from hangers. Maybe I'll clip them on like a clothesline. Or continue with my smooshed pile method.

I try to put all my Woot shirts together on the shelf. Well, actually my wife does. She's a great woman.

I have over 100 with woot, threadless, a couple teefury, a few dbh, a few tilteed and a tenbills. I hang all of mine so I can see them but sorted in color.

I use these giant plastic slowly rounded hangers from Ikea. They have softer curves to prevent shoulder nipples.

They are the best thing ever for clothes!

I have two rods in my closet -- one for t-shirts, one for everything else I own.

Me too. Well, I actually have 3 rods, but if I put too much on one, it blocks a shelf. 1 rod has work clothes. I have 1 1/2 of the other rods crammed full of hanging tshirts. I have a sorting system, but it only makes sense to me.
I don't have a problem with shoulder bumps from the hangers...my problem is the shirts get huge wrinkles in them from being crammed together so tightly. I need to find a better way to store them. lol

I don't have nearly as many but they take over one section of my closet. I hang them. My hangers are big enough that I rarely see the shoulder humps. If so, they're easy to iron out.

I scouted out my linen closet last night and there's plenty of room to hang my t-shirts in there. I think I'll get a big lot of wide hangers on eBay. I tried hanging a few last night sorted by color and the geek in me loves the way it looks.

If I had the room in my apartment, I'd want one of those circular retail hanging racks. It'll be like a piece of art in the middle of the room. :-D
