How To Fold Kid's Pajama Sets - Never Have Mismatched Pj's Again!


Today I'm sharing my secret on how my daughter always has matching pajamas!  This sounds silly, I know, but it has saved me lots of time when packing too and limited the amount of headaches I get when I try to find a matching set for one reason or another.  So, without further ado here is my little secret.


I simply just fold them into each other and file them in her drawer.   That. Is. It.

It starts when I'm doing her laundry.  I find the matching pajamas while I'm folding clothes and group the sets together. 

Leaving them for last makes it easier to fold because all the sets should be grouped together so there's no more looking in a big pile of clothes.  (I do this for socks too)



Simply fold the shorts in half and pants into quarter folds and put them aside.  Then take the shirt and lay it with the front facing down and fold the sides in.  



Finally, place the pants/shorts on the very bottom or top of the shirt and fold the shirt over it.  



And now you have a nicely folded pajama set ready to be filed in the drawer!  



My daughter wears 5T - S (5/6) depending on the brand, so if it's any bigger than that, I'm not sure if you'll need to make any type of adjustments.  

I'm telling you this is so worth the longer fold time and makes up all the loss time trying to find the set in the first place!  

What do you think about this tip?  Let me know in the comments below!

    1. My daughter did too until I came up with this system. I always felt embarrassed taking her to grandmas house with mismatched pjs because I couldn't find the matchers.

  2. Great tip! I did this once when I was a nanny for two younger girls. Only problem was they picked out their own pajamas every night and would pull EVERY single pair out to "try on". I think it was out of spite for not letting them have candy for their snack.

  4. Great tip! Why didn't I figure that out when my kids were younger?! These days they don't like the jammie shirts and wear regular shirts with the pajama bottoms. Of course, they often run out of clean shirts ... go figure;0)

    1. Oh yes! Especially when the clothes are so little. It's easy for them to get lost in the drawer.
