I keep four sets of 100% cotton sheets for each bed: two flannel, two regular cotton. I was reminded that I used a worn-out set for a comforter when I switched flannel for cotton this spring and discovered only one set of sheets for our bed.
I saw a sale advertised at JCPenney, but their cheapest 100% cotton queen set was $49. With an eye to the end of that afternoon's babysitting, I flew over to TJMaxx to see if they could beat that price. Oh yes, they could: $29.99. Over the years, I realize, I have found ebay and TJMaxx consistently have the best prices for sheets.
I am a wife and mother of two. I am a stay-at-home mom, a Mennonite, and a city dweller. I like to make things (see the blog categories below). This blog is a record of what I make and the ways I try to be thrifty. Welcome!
"Thrift is the really romantic thing; economy is more romantic than extravagance...thrift is poetic because it is creative; waste is unpoetic because it is waste...if a man could undertake to make use of all the things in his dustbin, he would be a broader genius than Shakespeare."
