I happened to see a video on Facebook today of a woman showing how to "properly" fold a fitted bed sheet.  It's not the first time I've seen such a video.  In fact, there are an unbelievable amount of videos demonstrating this activity!  You would think, based on the sheer number of instructional videos out there showing us all how to fold those cumbersome fitted sheets, that this is one of  the biggest problems facing Americans. Seriously?  I can say with experience that folding a fitted sheet according to these videos will take you twice as long as the simple way of finding the rounded corners, folding the sheet in half, then in half again, and in half one more time. My way is the "NO" example below.  It's not as pretty as the method demonstrated in the video below, but it does the job.  Plus, let's face it, we almost never see the fitted sheet on the bed.  It's either covered up with another sheet and blankets or you're laying on it so is this really so important?
