    Given that you spend 1/3 of your life in bed, I'm curious where you guys like to get your bedsheets and what do you look for when shopping?

    Wal-Mart

    I look for the lowest price that has a half-way decent look.

    I buy them cheap. Higher thread count usually feels better and lasts longer. I don't much care about color or pattern, but I also don't buy them real often.

    I actually just got new jersey sheets a week ago... best decision I've made lately! icon_biggrin.gif For 3 years I was sleeping on these kind of cheap sheets I got at WalMart. When I bought them I figured "they'll soften up, right?" So wrong, haha, they stayed rough and kind of uncomfortable to this day. So yeah, jersey may not be "nice" or "classy" or whatever, but they are so soft and amazing...

    No, that's called ceilings and walls and shower curtains.

    I currently can't seem to find any that I like. I like cotton with high thread counts, that are crisp and clean. But lately all I can find are these soft ones which I don't care for, jersey knit sheets which may be ok in winter, or polyester blends which aren't too bad when new but tend to pill.

    I'm probably too picky so I'm washing the same set over and over.

    I have no idea. My partner is all into bed sheets and home furnishings, etc. so I let him have fun and get what he likes.

    I do know that he purchased Frette for the guest room - strange that the guests sleep on nicer sheets than we do! icon_confused.gif

    Overstock or Amazon. I'm cheap.

    maybe Bed Bath & Beyond, but only if I have a coupon.

    I agree with you, so you're not too picky. LOL.
    Several years ago, I found some great crisp !00% cotton sheets at Target (of all places). I bought 2 sets, which I rotate. Target doesn't have them anymore or I'd buy some more.

    I found GREAT 100% 1000 thread count Egyptian Cotton sheets at Marshalls and TJ Maxx for $40!!!!

    Love them!

    I also have simple blue ones from Target that I like. The 800 thread sateen ones I bought from Bed, Bath, & Beyond- only okay.
