Works for me Wednesday: storing sheets

You know that bottom sheet that goes on your bed? The one with the bunchy corners that won't fold quite right? Yep, that one.....

I have always had trouble with that black sheep sheet. I want to open my linen closet to see nice neat stacks of sheets, towels and washcloths. The sheet pile always ends up messy, no matter how hard I try and it drives me crazy!

So I now fold the sheet, whose name we will not mention, along with the top sheet and 1 pillow case. I stick the stack of sheets and pillow case into the very back of the other matching pillow case. I then fold over the remaining pillow case material so the decorative trim is showing.

You then have all the pieces of your sheet set, without hunting or losing pieces. You also have a very neat, visually appealing way to store your sheets!

And that works for this mama!!

This is how I do it, except I turn the outer case inside-out so that it is easier to shove onto the pillow when bed-making comes around.

What a great idea! I am good at folding that black sheep sheet (fun to say in my head!) but this would surely keep them all together, and keep my closet less messy. Thanks for sharing!
