Well, Money has Cotton in it

Money ClothesAlways the creative one, Mom folded bills into little articles of clothing for me this Christmas. If you can’t tell, they’re a polo, pants and a bow tie. The bow tie is my favorite and it looks to be the most complicated to fold. I’ll have to have Mom teach me how to do this so I can have a creative way to leave a tip at restaurants!

Wear the Pants (without the fold)

HangerAll my life, I’ve stored my pants on a standard hanger. You’d just slide the pants through and let both sides fall. This is great for putting everything in your closet, but you always end up with creases around your knees. That’s no way to look put together! My roommate has these awesome hangers for hanging pants. They’re called Trouser Clamps and you can get them at the Container Store. These clamps don’t require you to fold your pants in half, creating creases. They hold the pants at the ankle and let the rest fall. I would only recommend using these with pants that have pressed folds down the leg.
