Oh, Sheet

We have a lot of family (and a lot of friends).

(We’ve grown since this picture was taken, but you get the drift).

 

We have a lot of beds for a lot of family and a lot of friends.

(If you count the lovely pink divan style cushion princess bed and two cribs, we have 31 beds.)

 

We need a lot of sheets for a lot of beds for a lot of family and a lot of friends.

(Let’s do the math:  6 cowboy beds x 2, 2 cowgirl beds x 2, 1 queen size bed x 3, 1 full size bed x 3, 4 girl’s room beds x 2, 12 other twin beds x 2, 2 cribs x 2….wait.  Holy Sheet!)

 

It took some time to work out a system for a lot of sheets for a lot of beds for a lot of family and a lot of friends.

To support this system for a lot of sheets for a lot of beds for a lot of family and a lot of friends I used pillow case covers (to keep the sheets and pillowcases neat, dust-free and organized).  I wrote on the covers to ask our guests to change their beds.

(Full of Sheet).  

 

This system has worked for quite a few years, but it was time for a change.  The sheet bags were made from zippered pillow case covers.   They were just too big for the folded sheets.

The printing was a little wonky.

(Clearly “someone” didn’t Give a Sheet about the printing).

 

The sheets needed a hero.

    Holy Camoly! You are on overdrive, dear sister. Please come to my house and organize me. Pretty please with a cherry on top!
    I love it. Did you really do the zippers? I still need a cheat sheet to put them in.

      Oh, don’t tempt me. I DO love to organize! (I would do it even without the cherry!) Ah.. the zipper trick. No, I cut down the zippered pillow covers and left the zippers in tact I think I would need a cheat sheet as well. Most certainly I’d need one for 60 zippers (on the other hand, I’d probably be pretty good after the first couple dozen or so…)
