How do you store your sheets and pillowcases? In the airing cupboard? Me too. And do you have “sets”, I mean pillowcases that match particular quilt covers? Even worse, do you have sets in more than one size? Our bed is king size, there are double sheets for the sofa bed and singles for the guest bed. That’s a lot of cotton sitting in piles in a hot airing cupboard. And how many times do you have to sort through said piles to find a matching set? You too? Well listen up, I’ve had inspiration.
I just emptied the cupboard and spent an hour putting them back in – but in sets. Yep, a single white bottom sheet with a single white top sheet and two plain white pillowcases, along with a pretty blue quilt cover embroidered with daisies. I even tucked everything into the folds of the quilt cover so that I can just reach in and pull them out in one go. If I was really dedicated I could buy a few metres of ribbon and loosely tie them up, like parcels. But no, I didn’t label them.
Heh, I could give Martha Stewart a run for her money today!
