Folding a Fitted Sheet
September 15, 2021 9:34am CST
Happy Wednesday Everyone! the sun was out and now it's gone. Here we go again with a partly cloudy day and rain and thunderstorms for later. I stripped my bed this morning and my sheets are in the wash. Rather than putting on a different set I decided just to put these back on once they're done in the dryer. I don't feel like hassling with trying to fold up the fitted sheet so this is just easier Back in the "good old days" my mom taught me how to correctly fold a fitted sheet. I've done it for many many years but recently I'm tired of trying to fight to get it folded right. I remember my mom being able to get that fitted sheet folded so perfectly that you couldn't tell which sheet was the fitted one or the top sheet when you looked in the linen closet. Everything was folded just so and very well organized. My mom was a stickler when it came to certain things. I'm not as picky as my mom but certain things I guess have been ingrained in me. Taking my clean sheets out of the wash today and putting them right back on my bed saves me the nagging voice in my head when I can hear my mom saying "if you're going to do something do it right". Do you fight with those fitted sheets to fold them or do you just do the best you can and not worry about it?

I fold them like mom taught me... and yes, they can be a pain in the tush! *sigh* At least you got to see the sun today... It started raining last night and, when I stepped out to look at the plants on the porch my daughter laughed and told me they'd gotten enough water, so leave them alone... It's still sprinkling. (I was sweeping the leaves off the porch... My daughter can be a pain, too. )
I remember watching Martha Stewart one day, and she showed how to correctly fold a fitted sheet. I am sure that you can watch a video on it but it helped me because until I watched that I preferred never to fold them just use the same one and after it was laundered it went right back on the bed. I've lived and learned since then.

I've always been a stickler for folded sheets so that when I put them on my bed they aren't all wrinkled, etc. but lately I've been so lazy that I just put the same ones back on. I'm sure there's a video that shows how to correctly fold a fitted sheet. My mom was my video
I have always tried to fold our sheets perfectly... I'm still trying lol. As far as that movie... I read everybody elses comments too lol... I honestly don't think that I have ever seen that movie. It's going on my list!!! Who cares about perfectly folded sheets lol.
