Ideas for bedding storage in a pillowcase – How to store bed sheets in a pillowcase? Sounds simple right? Keeping matching sets of sheets together can be a pain in the butt so keeping the bedding sets together inside the matching pillowcase works like a charm!
Our linen closet will serves as a multipurpose closet for cleaning, laundry, blankets, sheets, towels and toiletries. Today I am going to show you a smart way to store bedding that takes minutes!
We do have a laundry that will house many of the items but not until I figure out the shelving. I am short and our washer and dryer protrude a bit beyond the existing shelves so I need to figure out another solution but that is a project for another day.

Bed Sheet Storage Ideas
How to store spare bedding
Fold your matching set of sheets and one pillowcase and place everything inside the 2nd pillowcase.
Place the rolled sheets and flat pillowcase (on top of the rolled sheets) inside one of the pillowcases towards a corner.
The flat pillowcase on top of the rolled sheets inside made the rolled sheets look flat.
Fold the pillowcase in half.
Gather the pillowcase so you can twist.
Twist the excess bedding sheet at the end so you can tie a knot.
Tying a knot will be easy if you are using a king pillowcase.
In this particular case, this was a standard pillowcase so you can see it was a tiny knot.
You don’t need to fit all of the sheet through completely to make the knot, just enough to keep it together.
Storage Ideas for Bedding – Basket or Box
That’s it, so simple and cute. Don’t they look like cute little grain sacks? I love the idea of storing bed sheets inside a pillowcase. You can either store the matching bedding sets on a linen shelf or in a basket.

You will also see that I stored some of the bedding sheets in a seagrass basket too. Rectangular low profile bins are perfect for storing sheets.
I realize some of you may be saying, who has time to roll up sheets and place inside pillowcases? Honestly, it doesn’t take that much longer and if your household is anything line mine, you know that re-organizing and fixing stacked sheets that somehow end up in a messy pile, takes a lot of time.
If you like tidy looking with little effort, then try this!
