    Default Bed sheets

    My daughter is transitioning into a "big girl bed", so I need to buy

    some bed sheets and a blanket. Considering she's also toilet training,

    I figure I'll need several sets. I'm always amazed at how much sheets

    cost...it's just a big piece of fabric! In the past, I have bought

    cheap sets to save money, but they remained scratchy and hard after

    repeated washings. I want to find sheets that don't break the bank, but

    will give my daughter something soft and comfortable to sleep on. Is

    there a certain thread count I should look for? Isn't there some other

    measure of softness, besides the thread count? Where can I look for a

    good deal? I'm in the Boston area.



    Thanks,

    Suzanne

    Do they have Freecycle where you are?



    http://www.freecycle.org/



    I basically furnished my apartment and then my household of 8 with

    Freecycle. You can get sheets from there if you are OK with someone else's

    sheets that you can bleach / wash thoroughly.

    Suzanne...this is the perfect time to go to the yard good store and get soft flannel by the yard. Measure the mattress and depth of the sides...add 4 inches to all sides. They have sheet holders...they look like the old grandma garters...you fasten them to the 4 corners of the fabric to form a "fitted" sheet. Surprisingly...the flannel is not too hot in the summer and stands up to numerous washings. T-shirt material is another good find. My kids went from cribs to youth beds...big mistake...the sheets were more expensive than for my queen bed...so I made my own. Hope this helps you! Toots

    My kids prefer either the jersey knit or flannel sheets. I usually try
    to find them at a Goodwill or Salvation Army store. Another option is
    to buy the "end of the season" sets (ie -- snowman flannel sheets in
    January -- neon/floral knit jersey ones in September)

    T-Shirt sheets? (I don't think that is a brand, but I remember them at

    WalMart and my little guy loved them for being super soft.)

    They aren't cheap, but Land's End makes awsome flannel sheets- check ebay and the Land's End closeouts/clearance stuff. If you can't save on them, take heart... My 18 year old is still sleeping on sheets from Land's End that were bought for him when hewas <4> years old...and the sheets are still in good condition- no holes!

    Have you tried rummage sales? I know that's the luck of the draw but I did find several sets last summer for under $1. Otherwise I've seen decent selections at Salvation Army or GoodWill of kids themed sheets. Michele
