The sheets I use are deep (from http://www.thomasleeltd.com ), but not as deep as many! Right now, I just try the method of folding the flat sheet within, which I think saves more space anyway, even if the fitted sheet gets more wrinkly. And I love the crisp Thomas Lee sheets, so I guess its worth it!

The static images and actual descriptions of steps are just what I needed. All the animated .gifs and videos where they go way too fast were just frustrating me to death.

Now it’s a little harder to discern between fitted and regular sheets, but I guess that’s a good thing!

I’ll admit: I’ve found it easiest to ball up the pillowcases, flat and fitted sheets all together in one loose ball, then crush it flat — fits on my linen closet shelf just fine. :-)

I must have missed Home Ec 101. But I finally remembered to check back to this tutorial, and it worked brilliantly! I am thoroughly proud of my domestic abilities right now. Thank you!

I once heard Martha Stewart on her radio show say she never bought fitted sheets. She would just buy flat sheets for both the mattress and top sheet. Is this true? Then a friend told me she used the fitted sheet to place the top sheet and pillowcases into and wrapped it like a present with the fitted sheet and put it in the closet. I’ve never seen this either but thought it was an interesting idea.

Also, what a brilliant tutorial. I will definitely be incorporating this into my future life.

I just roll mine up and stuff them in the closet and call it a day. Luckily, no one looks inside my closet.

I’ve always wondered what others do. I gave up years ago and started stuffing all my sheets in a pillowcase and then stuffing that in the closet. I’m hopeless! However, I do want to give this a try. Thanks!

I’ve been cleaning and purging room by room this summer and it time for the linen closet. I dream of the perfectly folded & stacked sheets a la Martha and while it’s neat, it’s not exactly what I pictured in my head. Thanks for the step by step instructions, I’m going with method #1.

However, I’ve lost my way and was so happy to see this. I had three sets of sheets to fold this evening and I was very successful with method 1. Yay! I love when my top and bottom sheets fold to the same size and look so neat in my linen closet. Thanks!

I learned the first method from a nun at a mission. Quite a revelation for me at the time.

No need to look for a whole set in a crumbling pile of sheets anymore! I also roll towels. My laundry cupboard closes and that is key. The towels are personalized to limit them to 1 per person, 2 for the husband, a guest towel and beach towels. I still have the towel I had as a girl and never wish for more.

I always do Method 1 but fail miserably at it. Well, it’s not THAT bad, but it’s never as neat as I want it to be. I’m going to attempt Method 2 and see if it works better for me! Thanks! :)
