We have been asked “Why would I want to learn how to fold a fitted sheet?” Well it really does only take 1-2 minutes to fold a fitted sheet once you learn how.

Another tip is after you have folded your sheets. Put both the folded fitted sheet, folded flat sheet and folded pillowcase in one of the pillowcases you can then have them all together neatly on the shelf. Then when you need your sheets they are all together in one easy set.
