How to Store Sheets
Step 1. Fold your matching set of sheets and one pillowcase and place everything inside the 2nd pillowcase.
Step 2. Place the rolled sheets and flat pillowcase (on top of the rolled sheets) inside one of the pillowcases towards a corner.
3. Place he flat pillowcase on top of the rolled sheets inside made the rolled sheets look flat.
4. Fold the pillowcase in half.
5. Gather the pillowcase so you can twist.
6. Twist the excess bedding sheet at the end so you can tie a knot.
7. 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 (like this one) 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.

Using plexiglass on wire shelves will help with stability. A trick we learned with my mom’s closets,
I love that idea! Good one 🙂
I love this! It keeps the sheets fresh and organized. You have such good tips and I pray for you and your family.
Thank you sweet friend 🙂
I’m looking forward to seeing your new creations. However, I don’t like the “twists” at the end of the pillowcase holding the sheets. Would look all wrinkly when I go to use them….. Now rolling the sheets and pillowcases together makes great sense and looks neat. I like Kara’s idea of using plexiglass to stabilize wire racks. Your new home is lovely and so different.
Thank you !I love the plexiglass idea too 🙂 I think folding under the excess pillowcase would definitely work too!
I love how you tackled this, Jess! I have attempted sheets in the pillow case in the past but didn’t like how I couldn’t make them lay neatly on the shelf- your method is PERFECT!!!
I love this idea, just not too sure about tying it into a know. I would think that the edges of the pillow case would be all wrinkly. I would probably fold the end over itself or something. Still love the idea. Thanks for sharing.
Such a great idea! Easy to get an entire set and a big space saver!
This is so cool! Thanks for sharing! 🙂
All I’m thinking is Why haven’t I ever thought to do this?! I love how tidy this is!!
Neat idea and too much work. I use a folded flat sheet , then place the folded bottom sheet on top on one end, then the two pillow cases on top of that, and then bring the free end up to cover and make a nice packet. Then stacked on linen closet shelf. When ready to use just place on the bed and open.
I do use the pillow case method on the boat for spare blankets. I had large (king size) nautical motif ones made with the boat’s name. Blankets are placed flat into the pillow case and laid flat on a shelf. Don’t want stuff falling off when sailing.
That sounds like a great idea too! Yes, boats are definitely tight on storage 🙂
