Buy new sheets.
So when are you actually supposed to change sheets, anyway?
There’s obviously some point where they lose their satisfying smoothness and even fresh out of the dryer don’t quite seem as inviting as they used to. But dang, that’s a very slow process and it feels like you just crawl into bed one night and they just feel wrong and a little gross out of nowhere.
Or you have a punk dog that chews holes through everything. Maybe a clumsy spouse who spills coffee or wine or whatever. That can accelerate the new sheets timeline considerably.
However you get there, the next step is usually standing in the bedding aisle at some department store (or a certain place with a “beyond” section that includes all the things we refuse to make a SideDeal out of).
Standing there, we all have the same universal thought:
“Wow this stuff is expensive. No wonder I didn’t do this a year ago.”
Unfortunately, that thought process is usually followed by reluctantly overpaying for sheets, because that’s part of being a grown up.
Well buck up, grown up. Because it doesn’t have to be.
It turns out that you can get a solid deal on awesome sheets from the comfort of your home, or even from the the slowly-decaying comfort of your gradually deteriorating bedding.
What’s that? You want to know bedding specs, too? Okay wow, you really are taking this seriously, aren’t you?
They’re a brushed cotton weighing in at an oddly specific 144 thread count. You get a flat sheet, a fitted sheet, and two pillowcases, all in your choice of several colors. If you have one of those crazy beefy mattresses, these will work for up to 15 inches of…depth? Whatever you call that measurement.
Either way, order yours even if you can’t quite see daylight through your old sheets yet. It’s a deal.
