Nothing irks us more than when something gets in the way of us and a tidy closet. Especially if we're stressed the quickest relief is to take an evening and make the closet shine. But one thing generally stand in the way. Fitted sheets.

Our favorite is this youtube video for How To Fold A Fitted Sheet Like a Pro which features a middle aged husband giving us the breakdown, very matter of fact and scientific.
