For those of us with [just a touch of] OCD, folding clothes can be a bit annoying. You really, really, really want everything to be the same size and look uniform. Full disclosure: I could re-fold the same shirt multiple times until I get it just the way I want it.
From many years of working in a boutique, I learned the trick to the perfect fold: the FlipFOLD Laundry Folder. We used this folding board to fold dozens of shirts for displays and shelves. No matter who was doing the task, clothing would look uniform and neat.
While it may look like a lot of steps, folding one shirt takes a grand total of five seconds, tops. I promise! And the result is perfect every time.
It works just as well for use on jeans, sweaters, blouses, etc. And, for childrens or petite clothing, it also comes in a junior size. I actually prefer the junior size for most of my petite tops, but either one does a nice job. (Bonus: If you have kids who help with laundry this is a great tool to ensure that, no matter who is doing the chores, the result is perfect every time.)
The FlipFOLD retails for about $25, but you can find cheaper options on ebay and other stores as well (see here for a few examples).
