Off I went to Ross today and found a wonderful set of new sheets! 100% cotton (very important) and 650 thread count (also important) for only $30! When I find a set of sheets I like we use them until they are worn thin because it seems like the more you wash them the comfier they become.
I was looking at Neiman Marcus online and was shocked to see that they sell ONE sheet for $800! I didn't even know they had sheets that were so expensive until I read another lady's blog where she raved about finding sheets she liked for much less than the $1200 (!?) she usually pays. Holy cow! I can't even imagine what it would be like to sleep on such expensive sheets. Are they really that much better than run-of-the-mill Ross sheets? I'll probably never know but for now I'm super happy with my (cheap) comfy cotton sheets!
