Fitted sheets: Learn where to hold 'em, know how to fold 'em

We all aspire to a Marie Kondo level of organization in our homes. But time and again, we seem to get stumped by one item in particular: the fitted sheet.

Sure, it's all well and good when it's flat and smooth on the bed. But what about when it's fresh out of the dryer and needs to be folded? (Sadly, rolling it in a ball and stuffing it in the linen closet doesn't count.)

To help us solve this puzzle, we turned to an expert who knows a thing or two about great bedding. Ariel Kaye, CEO of luxe bedding company Parachute, graciously shared her magical method that had us properly folding fitted sheets in no time. (Hint: it's all about the corners).

Ready? It takes a few steps, but you've got nothing to lose. (And trust us, your linen closet will never be the same.)
