Efficient bedsheet storage

Donna has potentially straightened out your linen closet (or at least given you a way to do so):

Place matching folded sheets and pillowcases inside one of the pillowcases that go with the set.  Fold the case around the sheets and you have a neat grab-with-one-hand, no-need-to-pull-the-closet-apart-to-make-the-bed solution for keeping the linen closet tidy.

    For kids less likely to go on a fishing expedition there, sticking a set of sheets in a pillowcase under the mattress works too.

    It’s worked very well for us once I decluttered the linen closet to keep just two sets of sheet for each bed — one on the bed, one folded — and got into the habit of stripping the beds for one big load (we have a large-capacity washer) on Monday morning.

    Save space in the closet – we have only two sets of sheets for each bed, so the ones not actually on the bed are stored between the mattresses of the bed they go on.

    I just had a big Duuuhhhh! moment reading that. I’m going to run to my closet and carry out this hack as soon as I’m finished with this comment.
