    Is a big waste of time. :lol: My neighbor folds her fitted sheets to perfect squares that lay neat and flat on the shelf. :roll: I watched her fold some this morning. I have tried to do it her way but get so bored I end up rolling it up and squishing a square out of it and calling it done. I don't keep but one extra change of sheets per bed size and usually take sheets out of dryer and right back on the bed anyway.

    Agree with you! I just have a "sheet" shelf in the linen closet, with the matching folded flat sheet under the balled up fitted sheet. LOL!

    I"ve got a friend who worked at a sheet factory and all of her sheets are so neatly folded on her shelf... Nah. I just won't take the time to do that. If you MASH hard enough, they go pretty much into a flat square!

    Would love to know how to fold a fitted sheet without having to roll it in a ball. If they aren't pretty flat everything on top of them rolls out onto the floor. Right now I have them in a drawer so it isn't a problem. Close is good enough for me. Can't sweat the small stuff.

    I love your way of thinking BellaBoo :D:D:D I fold the same way

    Oldest DD was always pulling them out of the linen closet and refolding them "correctly" when she lived at home :roll: Now that she is an adult with kids? Ha Ha she does the fold and stuff now too :lol::lol:

    I just put the fitted sheet, top sheet folded inside of the pillow case and store them that way in the closet

    I fold my sheets into a nice neat square..and then put them all inside the pillowcase to match..so when I change seasons etc. I can pull the pillowcase and have everything I need. I know some people think this is insane, just the way I do things.
