Video: How to fold fitted sheets (plus a look in my bathroom linen closet)

Since spring has still not sprung here yet, I figured today would be a great day to finish organizing the bathroom linen closet in our upstairs guest bathroom.

We recently renovated that entire room, so if you haven’t had a chance to see the before and after photos, click here.

I love what a few labels and $5 Walmart storage bins will do for a space.

Pillow-case-storageFirst-aid-storageI keep our first aid supplies on the top shelf so curious kidlets aren’t tempted to get into them.

Pillow-storageOur family has been using white bath towels exclusively for probably about 10 years. They are easy to clean (hot water and bleach, if necessary); they don’t show wear like dark towels; and they give the bathroom a bit of an upscale hotel vibe.

A clean and organized linen closet makes me smile. And you know what else is making me smile? Over the weekend, I finally mastered the art of folding fitted sheets! Better yet, I made a video of the process so you can do it, too. (Happy dance for all of us … OK, maybe just the uber-organized weirdos like me.) Check it out:

Do you have any tips for organizing linen closets?

  1. I can’t wait to try this with my King sheets! I have watched other folding videos SEVERAL TIMES and still have not mastered the fold! Thanks for the encouragement!

    • I hope it works for you this time! It took me forever to figure it out, lol. Please let me know if you have any trouble. Thanks for stopping by.

      • I have probably watched your video 6-7 times. Last week my King sized sheet looked better and today, my folding job is FANTASTIC!!! Thanks for sharing!

        • So glad you were able to master the art of folding fitted sheets, Lynette! 🙂 It is a bit tricky, isn’t it? It took me awhile to figure it out myself.

  3. Your closet looks great! And I love your idea of using only white towels.

    One tip (and it’s more decorating than organizing): I have some clear, labelled plastic bins, but I didn’t really like how one could see everything in them (but didn’t want to buy anything new), so I simply taped a piece of decorative paper on the inside, so the pattern was shown on the outside. Looks very cute.

  4. I found your site through a search for fitted sheet tutorials on YouTube and want to thank you! You’re so right–the other videos are so vague, and yours helped me figure out where I was going wrong. I’ve wanted to master this for years because it just seems like a skill every adult should have. Thanks again!
