My husband usually does the laundry in my household. However, that wasn’t working out for us, and since he had surgery last month, I’ve been taking over the laundry responsibilities. I’ve learned many amusing things while doing the laundry, but the overwhelming thing I have learned is just the fact that we have too much clothing, too many towels, too many sheet sets.
I was talking to Heather about this in IM this morning. I was telling her that I needed to clean my linen closet out so I could start storing towels in there. Previously I had been storing blankets, tablecloths, and sheet sets in there, but with the overabundance of sheet sets I have unearthed since the Great Laundry Rescue of 2007, I need to make space for them in the linen closet.
Heather said all you really need is 2 sheet sets per bed. I probably *do* only have 2 sheet sets per bed, but with 4 beds in the house, that still takes up some space in my linen closet. Heather then said something that, to me, is such complete genius I knew I had to share it with you guys:
Store the extra sheets under the mattress.
Seriously, I would have never thought of that in a million, billion years. And it makes so much sense, why take up space in the linen closet when you can just put the sheets under the mattress? Not only that, but for those middle of the night, “I wet my bed” incidents, you can just reach under the mattress for a full, clean set of sheets, ready to go, no digging through the linen closet.
Genius, I tell ya. Genius.
