Do you struggle to fold a fitted sheet? Well it is about time we blow that myth out of the water, no more feeling like you have wrestled an octopus or done ten rounds trying to get a beach sunshade back in the original bag- there is another way!

After a little practice you will be able to fold a fitted sheet while chatting to friends, walking around the house or standing still and enjoying the fact you have mastered the art of folding a fitted sheet.

Now that you have mastered the art of folding a fitted sheet and you have bragged about it to friends the next step is to sort and organise you linen cupboard

Step 1

The first step to sort and organise the linen cupboard  into groups, and remember sort one shelf at a time before you remove more items, and don’t forget your before and after photos.

While you are sorting, you need to decide what stays and what goes. Ask yourself:


Do I use it anymore and how many do I really need?
Is it in good condition, can it repaired, recycled or repurposed?

Once you have finished it is time to return the linen to the cupboard. Now is a good time to zone the linen cupboard.

Step 2

Zone the linen cupboard

  • Stack like with like.
  • Frequently used items sit front and center.
  • Infrequently used items are stored in 2nd, 3rd and 4th
  • Return only what you need and in good condition.
