I’m a lucky girl. My husband has always had a laundry routine and when our lives merged, he stuck to the routine. I like to say that I sort, he washes, and I fold. But I’m not as disciplined as he is about it and sometimes I get a little behind on… err… the folding. But when I get to it, I do it right! Except for those danged fitted sheets. For the longest time, my linen closet was plagued with a terribly messy pile of fitted sheets.

No longer. There IS a proper way to fold a fitted sheet. I would try to describe it here, but honestly, sometimes the best way to learn these things is by watching someone do it. For this reason, I highly recommend these videos.

So go ahead, watch our videos, and conquer your linen closet. Let us know how it goes!
