Linen Cupboard Blues
Nights are getting colder here in Scotland, so I decided to bring out the winter bed clothes. When I opened the linen cupboard door, I nearly fainted. What chaos! I couldn't find a matching set of sheets for anything -- there were fitted sheets (badly 'folded'), flat sheets, and pillow cases piled in a sort of higgledy-piggledy stack that was ready to fall right off the shelf. I gave up digging and pulled out the entire lot. It was time to reorganise.
I remembered reading something years ago about the best way to store sheets and duvet sets. The advice was to fold up the sets save one pillowcase. Put the folded set into the pillowcase and then neatly stack everything on the shelf. You'll always know where the complete set of sheets is because it will be inside the matching pillowcase on the shelf. Brilliant! I'm happy to report this system works well, and my linen closet no longer looks as if it's going to collapse onto itself. Yay!
