So, this is by far the most earth-shattering post to date. Not really, though. Only my fellow OCD geeks will think it’s the coolest thing since sliced bread. Today, kids, we will learn how to fold a fitted sheet! See, I told you it was earth-shattering. As in any class, some of you will already know how to do this, but for the rest of you, read carefully. In today’s lesson, we’ll learn how to go from this:
Ready? Okay! (That was by best, most obnoxious cheerleader impression to get you psyched.) First, find one corner. Place a finger in the right side of the sheet, so you see the inside.
Do this to the opposite corner, too. Then, bring your hands together and touch your fingertips together.
Keeping your hands together, roll one of the corners over the other.
Allign the seams according to your OCD specifications. Then, do this to the other two corners.
Once you’ve done that, keep your corners together and lay the sheet on a flat surface.
Straighten the elastic some. Then, fold into thirds or quarters.
I fold my outer edges toward the center, just so the outside edges aren’t showing.
And finally, into thirds or quarters again, or whatever size will fit in your closet.
Now, wasn’t that fun?!? More fun than a barrel of monkeys. For extra credit (and even more folding fun) try folding your plastic bags to save space.
Did you already know how to fold a fitted sheet? Or do you already fold your plastic bags? Got any other space-saving tips you’d like to share? Are you crazy like I am and have to have all towels, sheets and blankets folded the same way? Please tell me I’m not alone.
