I promise I am not dumb but for years I have struggled with how to fold a fitted sheet. To my mother's credit - she did teach me the gist of how to fold a fitted sheet but I never really got the hang of how to create a nicely folded fitted sheet that would stack perfectly above the matching flat sheet (this makes it sound like I am really organized - but I am not!). Since we have had house guests two weekends in a row - I have been doing plenty of sheet folding, Today I just got fed up. So I did what I usually do when I am stumped...I turn to the internet - youtube to be specific. I have found many wonderful tutorials on youtube (for example how to curl hair with a flat iron) and once more, I was not disappointed. There were at least 10 (!) tutorials on how to fold fitted sheets and each one was just a tiny bit different. This one was my favorite. This woman is very nice and gives lots of encouragement at the end of the tutorial:
Don't make fun! Maybe there are others out there that will benefit.
