Folding Fitted Sheets? Who Knew....

~ I'm almost embarrassed to admit this but it's true, so I will.

~ Who knew there is a proper way to fold a fitted sheet!
 I didn't....... 
There, I admitted it  

~ All my life, I've always rolled the fitted sheet up, (more like waded it up),
best as I could to store away until ready for the next use. 

~ I usually have 2 sets of sheets and rotate them, except now
I have 3 because I HAD to have some flannel sheets for colder months,
it gets cold out here at the little yellow home in the country {with no wind breakers}.  

~ I'm one of those folks that likes to watch Oprah.
No, I don't sit and watch every show, I DVR the show and then if the topic interests me, I will watch and fast forward through commercials and bits that don't interest me.

~ I'm not a really BIG Martha Stewart fan but she was on Oprah recently
and she demonstrated how to fold a fitted sheet. 

~ Since she did this on national TV, I was thinking to myself, maybe
I am NOT alone and there are many others who don't know
(didn't know) that there is a proper way to fold a fitted sheet. 

~ I just recently changed my sheets and put my new flannel sheets on. 
So, when I washed the set I removed from my bed,
I did exactly as Martha demonstrated and
the results are pictured below. 

~ I loved the way the folded fitted sheet came out flat. 
I will never again wad my fitted sheet and store it way.

The stack on the left is using MY method,
the stack on the right is using Martha's method. 

~ If you are interested in learning how to fold a fitted sheet,
I found a link on Youtube. 

~ It's not Martha but it's another gal
that demonstrated the same method.
