    Fold them? not in my liftime!
    they sort of get sloppy folded, along with the flat sheet and 1 pillow case..then it all goes in the other pillow case, just grab it and go change the bed! lol

    That is how I used to do it too.But it was taking up too much space in my linen closet so now they lay nice and flat and I have room to spare. I can't say that I will be doing this forever,but for now,it is working.

    That is just about the way I fold my fitted sheets. My daughters love me to help with laundry (do it) and they tell their friends they always know when their mom has been there. Well,at least I'm noticed for something! lol

    Fold sheets? Off the line and straight back onto the bed. Love the sunny smell of fresh sheets.

    Loved the video and maybe if I was 40 years younger I would fold my sheets, but at 62 I now realise life is far too short to spend it doing things like that.

    Never mind folding the fitted sheet (I already do most of that), I was intrigued by one that said about folding a T shirt the 'Japanese' way.

    I had to watch it several times - magical, and I can now do it myself.

    I saw the t shirt one about 4 years ago. That is a good one also.I hate balled up clothes and linens.It was nice hearing that someone already folded the sheets though.

    I've always folded my fitted sheets that way. It's the way my Mom taught me eons ago. I thought everyone did it that way... LOL

    This works fine unless your sheets have elastic down the length of the sheet too. I've been using a similar method for years.

    I fold the sheets like this then tie a ribbon to keep the sets together( Martha Stewart LOL). Everyone in my household recently got their own basket in the linen closet and their sheets go in there. I woke up one day and decided to get organized!

    We winter in Florida and I only have one set of sheets there. No need to fold because when I wash them they go right back on the bed. I really should adopt this here in Mass. (the one set thing)

    This is exactly how I fold my fitted sheets except that I do not fold the very last time. They are flatter and fit better in my cabinet.
