Those Darn Fitted Sheets!

Okay-- so not too many things around the house can get me aggravated (besides the fact that no matter how many times the dishes get done, there always seems to be more to do!) but those darn fitted sheets used to always give me a fit!  Most times they ended up wadded into a big ball (because we have a king size bed) and thrown into the top of the linen closet until needed.  Now I'm not one who irons my sheets, but I did hate it when I would pull out said sheet and it would be terribly wrinkled!  So my dear aunt one day showed me and my mom her trick.  Maybe you know it already- but for the rest of you fitted-sheet-haters- don't be scared-- you show that fitted sheet who the domestic queen of your house is!! 

*Note- I used a crib sheet because it was the easiest thing to take pictures of*

the crumpled fitted sheet

Okay- turn one side inside out...

fold in half....

tuck it into itself.  then turn one corner out and....

tuck it into the other corner.

now you have a rectangle of sorts.  all of your fitted sides should be tucked into each other in one corner.

smooth out and fold up!  there you have it folks!  a nice fitted sheet, folded correctly!
So- hope that helped and wasn't too confusing!  First time taking pictures of a process like that!  Maybe next time I'll go into picnic and do some cool pics with instructions and arrows and all that cool stuff!

Now--- go fold some sheets!
