How to fold a fitted sheet

Since childhood (when my mom paid me $3 to do laundry), I have been plagued with the very real problem--How do you fold a fitted sheet? Real Simple has posted step by step instructions with photos. After looking through them, I decided I like my method better.

Fold the sheet up as best you can with very little effort. Then, store a matched set of bottom sheet, top sheet and pillow cases inside one matching pillow case. When you change your sheets, pull the pillow case set out and all your pieces are together. And no one will care that the fitted sheet was folded properly. (I believe this is my version of one of Martha Stewart's tips.)
