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?

    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.

    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.

    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!

    I realize this is an old video but my dtr recently moved and asked me to setup her new linen closet and I wanted it to look great. Yes, I m a little OCD so I watched this and I m pretty sure I can do an even better job than I have done in the past although it was better than most. lol Thanks for taking the time to explain it!

    […] Well this is easy.   I then refolded any sheets that had come unfolded using a method I figured out a few years ago that make even the elusive fitted sheets look lovely.  Susan over at Living Rich on Less recently did a video tutorial that is great!  I fold mine almost exactly like she does so if you haven’t yet mastered the art check out her video here.
