Who cares how you fold your fitted sheets? I certainly don’t! As long as they are basically flat and rectangular to fit in the linen closet, we are good.
I think sometimes we get too hung up on doing housework perfectly and that can keep us from doing it at all. I’ve touched on this before when discussing the “clean messy,“ who live messy most of the time unless they get an entire day to clean (which never happens).
If you can’t do the job perfectly, just do the best you can. Dusting around things is better than not dusting at all. Spot cleaning is better than no cleaning.
A little every day will help keep you from feeling overwhelmed so cut yourself some slack but at least do a little!
