I haven’t paid full price for bed sheets in at least ten years, because I buy them at the thrift store for less than $2 dollars. I know that to some people it might seem disgusting to lay down on used sheets at night, but think about it like this…
You check into a hotel. Exhausted after a day of traveling, you slip into the bed you paid good money to sleep in, just like the people who booked the room before you.
Those sheets you’re on? They have been washed (hopefully) in hot water and soap. Possibly even bleach, if they are white. Or that fancy bleach they sell that doesn’t ruin colors. I forget what they call it.
Plus, like an old pair of jeans, they have lost the stiffness and scratchiness, now as soft as the fur of a kitten.
You can do the same thing with thrift store bath towels, rugs and blankets. Bring them home, give them a thorough washing and boom. You just saved yourself a buttload of money.
I wouldn’t recommend buying used underwear, though. Or bathing suits. You’re probably safe with a bathrobe.
So the next time you’re in need of bed sheets, think twice about spending $20+ on them and head to your nearest thrift shop.
Then pat yourself on the back and take a well deserved nap.
