How to Keep All Your Linens Organized

Do you hate when you look in the linen closet and all our sheets are everywhere and you can't find the matching pillow cases to the set you want? This Instructables will show you how to fold and organizes your sheet sets so they look good in the closet and the sets stay together. The best part? It only takes literally a minute to do!

Step 1: Fold Fitted Sheet

Gather the fitted sheet, flat sheet and pillow cases for the sheet set.

Then fold the fitted sheet in whatever method you have found that works for you.

I use this method (

You hold the sheet by the elastic and fold into thirds.
Then fold the bottom up toward the elastic.
Fold in half agin.
You can fold in half again if it is a larger sheet.

Don't worry if all the edges don't line up and it's not very neat. That is what I love about this system. I can fold the sheets quickly without worrying about them being neat.

Step 2: Fold Flat Sheet

Fold flat sheet in whatever method you prefer. Again it does not have to be neat.

Step 3: Fold and Stuff Pillow Cases

Fold one pillow case. Leave the other unfolded.

You will then stack the sheets and folded pillow case and place them in the unfolded pillow case.

This is why the sheets don't have to be super neat when folding, they are hidden in the pillow case!

Step 4: Place on Shelf

Now place your filled pillow case on the shelf. When you need to change the sheets you just grab a pillow case and the whole set is right there ready to go!

    Now everything stays together! Very nice :) I'm always missplacing a pillowcase.

    We've been doing this for so long we don't even bother to fold anymore, we just roll the set up and stuff the pillowcase, just like sailors do for their seabags, no wrinkles either. ☺
