    I am not talking about fancy luxury linens, but just decent quality.

    Between $30 and $50. Of course, you could go a lot higher for something special.

    I once bought a set of high thread count sheets... a jagged toenail ripped 'em open like a zipper.

    I think Evilgemini has it right. Sometimes you can get some good quality ones on sale (especially during white sales in January). I'd figure to shell out at least $30.00 for a decent set. It also depends on the size of the bed. I bought a set of flannel sheets for a relative and paid $25.00 and they are very nice.
    That relative really likes flannel.

    Target has decent ones that are cotton and bamboo and they are so soft and silky. I think they are around $60 for a queen size set.

    Rather than ask about price - you might be better asking about quality...

    Get something that is at least 350-400 thread count.

    Anything with a lower count might feel rough.

    Higher thread counts of 500 - 600 - 800 can be really outrageously expensive.

    Most people prefer 100% cotton or cotton flannel.

    I think the set I bought from Target were 600 thread count. The set was $80, but the quality is great!

    if you haven't checked out Target's line of bamboo sheets, you're missing out

    i've always kinda been a primadona about sheets, buying only 800+ thread counts; however...

    the bamboo sheets (at only 250 thread count) feel like 1,000. ok, well... maybe 500, but they are soft. and there's no pilling either.

    they have basically taken out the polyester in the normal 50cotton/50poly blend and replaced it with bamboo (60 cotton/40 bamboo).

    if there is anything negative to say, they don't come in white. ivory is as close as you'll get. but other than that, great price and more "green" too

    here's a link

    I prefer Satin sheets, but I also have Flannel and cotton of various thread counts that I can afford for my king size bed.

    It depends: do you have a Jennifer Lopez arse or a Gwyneth Paltrow bottom?

    I have 600 thread count. They are incredibly soft. I love them. I have three sets so they can be rotated for washing. They are 100% cotton. They do wrinkle more than a lower thread count sets but who cares if there are a few wrinkles on the playground. icon_lol.gificon_wink.gif

    Invest in a good mattress and good sheets. You spend a large portion of your life in bed. Make it the best experience possible.
