I’m pretty sure this storage system for sheets that I’m going to share with you is a “Kathy Roberts original” 🙂
I mentioned it to Pam Young when we were together in December and I thought for sure she knew about it. Her reaction made me feel so proud.
Before I go on with it I’ve got to mention that it’s important to realize that we don’t need as many sets of sheets as we think we do.
Most of us have seen the clothes lines in movies with rows and rows of sheets hanging on them and it made this kind of subconscious expectation that we need lots and lots of linens.
But the truth is, that was back in a time when there was no electricity, and mattresses were stuffed with straw and un-sanitized bird feathers.
There were no “pampers” no plastic protection from bed-wetting and no washing machines to quickly take care of getting the sheets clean and ready for a bed change.
Today, we have washing machines. We only need 2 sets of sheets per bed. And my secret storage are for them is between the mattress and the box spring (I’ve heard that in other countries they don’t have box springs, just slats for a mattress to sit on). I have a solution for that.
In this video I demonstrate exactly how I keep my sheets between the mattress and box spring and I show you how unnoticeable it is.
If you have a linen closet you can free it up. I used to use mine for board games, my sewing and knitting, office supplies (extra notebooks, printer paper, stapler, 3 ring hole punch etc.) my file box I used for important papers and other things I like to have easily at hand.
Leave a comment and let me know what you think of this idea. So many of my peeps have tried it and love it! Let me know if you give it a whirl!
