7. That way to fold a fitted sheet is just what I need.

But I will have to try it myself to see if it is as easy as it looks. I hate folding the fitted sheet so much that I take the sheets off the bed, wash them, and put them right back on....just to avoid folding them.

Thanks.

8. Me too, if they are not going right back on the bed, I sort of wad them into a rough square,

and stuff them in the shelf.

I once saw someone demonstrate on Martha's show how to fold fitted sheets, and it looked very easy; I tried it later, but couldn't do it. what was funny was, Martha really didn't think it was easy either, and said she does just what you do, just put them back on the bed!

10. OMG, Martha Stewart can't fold a fitting sheet!

I thought that she could do everything! Good to hear that she isn't perfect, and that I am not alone.

I hate those two times a year when I change the sheets that I use---summer sheets and flannel sheets. That means twice a year I have to wad them up and shove them in a drawer. One of these days, I will not wash them until it is time to put them back on, because they are so wrinkled up that it doesn't make me feel good to put them on the bed. Ugh.
