Want to know how many loads of laundry I washed, dried, folded, hung, and put away yesterday? 5. That’s right, FIVE. Want to know how many I have left? Mmmmmmmm, I’m going to estimate and say 4. FOUR MORE. Calgon take me away!
So in honor of all my laundry, I thought I’d share with you a nifty little tutorial on how to fold that blasted fitted sheet. *Of course, lets not leave out the little fact that really my ife would be a lot easier if I still had someone doing this for me* Because if you’re anything like me, and since we’ve gotten to know each other a bit over the last 7 months I can say that you probably are, that stupid stupid sheet ends up in a messy odd looking shape with random creases and fabric poking out all over the place. And then what you do is try to tame it and flatten it by putting the folded flat sheet and pillow cases on top of it, right? Follow that up with a *convincing* "yeah, that looks good now!" Yeah well, if we can’t tame the beast of the fitted sheet we might as well learn how to fold it for real.
1. Stand holding the sheet by the two adjacent corners of one of the shorter edges (see photo, left). With the sheet inside out, place one hand in each of these two corners.
6. Fold the sheet into a rectangle.
7. Continue folding until the rectangle is the size you want it to be.
Well, you know what they say... Practice makes perfect so I’m off to practice and perfect my fitted sheet folding skills by tackling my last 4 loads (until it all starts over again on Monday that is). Or maybe I'll bag it and just go shopping today....
