Try It Tuesday

Happy St. Patty’s Day, to ya, boyo!

I really wanted to make an irresistible Irish treat for you today, since its Saint Patrick’s Day and all, but then I saw that Sonic’s shakes are HALF PRICE all day long. And I thought to myself, “Self, you can either spend calories on something YOU make or spend calories on something someone else can make.” So I opted to let Sonic make me a DELISH shake and give you something practical for today’s Try It!

If you’re like me, when you fold a fitted sheet, this happens:

But, thanks to Pinterest, I finally found a way to fold a fitted sheet!

First, lay out your sheet:

If you have small children, this will be no easy feat. But, trust me, its worth it.

Next, bring up the corners to the top corners; like so:

(Apparently Huff the Babe needed to be in every single shot)

 

Then, tuck the corners that are on top into the corners that are on bottom:

Then, fold it into thirds:

After that, fold into thirds again (although I had to fold mine into thirds-and-a-half, ha!):

And voila! a perfectly folded fitted sheet!

 

I’ll admit, this was a little time-consuming…and rather difficult with a toddler and dog constantly walking on the sheet, but it was worth it to save some space in our closet.

Have you ever tried this? Do you have a different technique?

  1. I use a method called Put them right back on the bed after they’re dry. OR the ever popular ROLLITINABALLANDSTUFFITINTHECABINET. Either one works…
