I have to go buy a new set of bed sheets and I am not very happy about it. I don't think I've had this current set much more than a year and they have already totally ripped across the bottom area! I got these sheets at Target, so not super high quality, but they were their "luxury" highest priced sheets and sure should have lasted longer than a year. They were the Fieldcrest Luxury Egyptian cotton 600 count sheets and for the king size set I think I spent about $70 (I remember they were on sale at the time). I really liked these, too, they were nice and I liked the elastic on the sides along with the little tag that said "side" LOL.
Poo!! I guess I'll try finding some at Kohl's. Better see what kind of coupon I can find to use there. I really wasn't planning to spend a bunch of money on sheets right now. At least I have an old old set I can put on for now until I can combine a sale and coupon. It looks like Kohl's is only having a buy one get one for a $1 sale going on right now and I really don't want to spend $150, even if I will get 2 sets out of it. The best coupon I can find is only 15% off. I'll have to think on this and will probably wait for a better sale.
I have a $100 Target gift card (a Christmas gift from my boss) that I am trying to figure out what I want to buy with it, but I don't want to use it on sheets, if their sheets are that crappy of quality, so I guess I'll be spending out of pocket for a new set of sheets. I really hate buying sheets - you can't really tell what they will feel like until they are washed and they are so expensive.
UPDATE: Well, it's been 2 years ago that I bought these sheets! Boy time files! I remembered that I bought these when I bought the duvet cover, which was purchased on Amazon. I looked through my old orders and it was January 2013 and then I found this post I made about the sheets:
I don't feel quite so bad now that they have worn out - I did use these sheets the whole time (because I liked the color and feel) and only paid $50 for them on sale. They weren't the brand I mentioned above - they are the Target Threshold brand. I'm still on the fence of what to replace them with. I am about to pull the trigger on an organics set on Amazon for $89 (less a $5 gift card I have available) but I might revisit the idea of using my Target gift card to replace this set with the same or maybe 2 sets. Or.......even better...the top sheet is still good. I might try to find as close as color in just the bottom fitted sheet and then buy a 2nd full set so I can rotate. Stay tuned.......LOL
