folded dress shirts by believekevin on FlickrI don't fold my sheets. There, I said it. It's not that I don't know how. I do know how; I helped my mom with laundry all the time when I was a kid. But I don't really know how to do it by myself. What do you do when no one is holding the other end? So, I just sort of do a half-hearted fold, then wrap them all up until they fit into my linen closet.

Now you know one of my deepest, darkest secrets.

Ok, I kid (about the secret, not about not folding my sheets). The truth is, neatly folded sheets just aren't a priority for me. I mean, they're sheets. When I use them, my eyes are closed. Who cares if they're wrinkled?

When it comes to other things, however, like sweaters, t-shirts, dress shirts, napkins, and business letters, folding is important. So that's why I'd like to point you to Real Simple's guide on How to Fold Anything.

They'll even show you how to fold a fitted sheet, if you're into that sort of thing.

    I think most people would be horrified if they saw my linen closet. The problem is now, that it's just too full and my poorly folded sheets are spilling out. Great resource! Thanks :-)
