The struggle is totally real when it comes to fitted sheets! With these clever hacks, making your bed (and sleeping in it) will be hassle-free.


1. Buy patterned sheets.

My hip sidekick Jamie swears by buying striped sheets! Having a pattern (and knowing it runs a particular direction) will help you know just how to place your fitted sheet without the hassle of trial and error.


2. Find the tag on your fitted sheet.

According to a user on Reddit, the tag that’s sewn to the corner of your fitted sheet is always supposed to go on the bottom right corner of your bed. What a genius tip!

While there may be some company out there that doesn’t abide by these rules, I’ve found my sheets typically have a convenient tag reading”top/bottom” or “side” as a helpful guide.


3. Put the top corners on first.

The corners that sit against your headboard are the hardest to stretch a fitted sheet over, especially if your sheet is really tight. Put the top corners on first, so it’s easier to stretch the bottom corners on. Then, make sure the pocket sits deep enough on your mattress.


4. Keep your sheet from slipping off of your bed.

I really love how Cynthia shares how to fix your fitted sheet by adding some 2″ pajama elastics to the corners. If you have a sewing machine, this is a quick and inexpensive fix that’ll keep your fitted sheet from slipping from the bed constantly.


5. Learn how to fold a fitted sheet.

Learn how to fold a fitted sheet the right way, and save yourself from a balled up mess! Laura’s demonstration will help make your life a little easier. Plus, she shares three methods, so there’s a perfect option for everyone.


Bonus hack: Take your fitted sheet to the beach.
