    I gave up on trying to learn how to “fold” them I usually just stuff the fitted sheet and the flat sheet of a set into the matching pillowcase

    @lulu_honey:  My grandmother is the only person I know that is capable of folding a fitted sheet. She spent a lot of time trying to teach me how to do it, but I never learned. We pretty much just fold it into a nice lump.

    I know how to fold a fitted sheet, and I always fold them. I spent a summer working at a lake resort that had cabins, and that’s where I learned.

    I make little sheet/pillowcase bundles, so I fold up my fitted sheet and pillowcases, and then fold the flat sheet to fit over top of them. That way when it’s time to change the sheets there’s no searching involved, I just grab a bundle and it has everything I need.

    We didn’t have Pinterest and YouTube when I was 12.  Mom said “just pile up all the corners and then smooth it out.”  I figured it out.  It is not that difficult.  Or maybe that’s how I knew I should be an engineer.

    I actually think folding the fitted sheet is easier than the flat sheet – we have a king size bed and those are so unwieldly big.

    I’m of the wash and re-sheet the bed crowd usually, but we do actually have several sets of sheets and when I’m feeling ambitious I’ll fold and put them away.  My husband is a lost cause when it comes to folding even the flat one.  But weirdly – he can make a bed the marines would be proud of.  Easy to see what his chores were as a kid.  🙂

    I choose other because I’m sure they HAS to be a trick, not necessarily a “way”, to do it, BUT I just kind of just roll it around and then square it out when its the right size! Haha

    I suck at folding but my Fiance is awesome at it and he taught me how to fold a fitted sheet 🙂 I used to roll them in a ball.

    Step 1: Fold in half.

    Step 2: Fold in half again.

    Step 3: Crumble into a neat flat pile and stick in the closet.

    My mom taught me when I was young. I always fold it like OP. Tuck the corners, flatten it out, fold it up. I’ll have to see what Martha’s doing, if it’s any different than my method!
