To keep my sheets and pillow cases organized together as sets, I fold pillow cases of the same set, separate, then put all into last folded pillow case. Put set of folded pillow cases into the flat folded sheet with the folded fitted sheet. When you need the set of sheets, all are together as one, and the pillow cases can be taken out by the amount needed for the pillows.
Keep extra sheets folded between your mattress and box spring for easy access.
I put matching sheets (top sheet, pillow case) inside the folded fitted sheet, since the fitted sheet is hard to fold. This saves time instead of piling all pillow cases, top sheets, fitted sheets in three piles. One pull and you'll have all you need to make your bed!
I have a queen sized bed, and I can fit the folded top, fitted, and pillow case inside one of the two pillow cases. Everything stays together inside a pillow case, and nothing topples off the linen shelf in my linen closet.
A top sheet, fitted sheet and pillowcases will all fit nicely inside of one of the pillow cases. Put them all inside the pillow case and fold over the end. Store with flap on bottom. You can see exactly what you have, they stack together like little boxes and do not come apart if knocked off shelf or dropped. Also travels easy when you don't trust hotel sheets.
in old houses I've seen linen cabinets with lots of removeable wooden poles. This way you hang the pretty linens along these poles and can iron them once before storage. No creases to iron out after storage. I think I would use some sort of liner between the wooden pole and the linens though. Wood isn't neutral and might introduce something that might damage linens.
After washing bed linens, I fold the sheets as small as I can, and one pillowcase. Then I put both sheets and folded pillowcase inside the other pillowcase. This way, I can always find a complete set when I'm digging through the linen closet.
As I take each set of clean sheets out of the dryer, I fold them and tuck the 2 sheets and 1 pillowcase into the second case, like a bag or envelope. That way the whole set is together in one place and easy to grab, all at once-no searching for the pieces of the set!
I like to keep my spare sheet set tucked behind my pillowshams. I put them neatly folded inside the sham and then I have a clean set ready when I change the bed. Another way to do this is to put the extra set between the mattress and box springs.
I fold the flat sheet into a long strip then fold the fitted sheet into a similar strip and then fold it into about fourths - Then fold the pillowcases and place the fitted sheet and pilowcases at th end of the long flat sheet strip and just roll them all together - it is neat and all are together when you need them. Stores easily also!
LOL, would like tips on how the original poster got her kids to make their own beds!
I don't keep but 2 sets of sheets for my queen bed. I don't know how sanitary it is by I put the second fitted sheet right on top of the other fitted sheet on my bed. On wash day I just take off the top one and now sleeping on the one underneath. I keep the spare flat sheet folded and in a linen closet. I got this tip online from someone and it's worked out for me because it saves space in linen closet.
