I have to admit that I am a snob when it comes to bedding. I have a hard time sleeping because I work nights and I have to have good quality sheets. This is one area that I will spend my money. I am always looking for deals. I just bought a set of king silver sheets 1000 thread count Egyptian cotton for under $100 dollars. I am so proud of myself. Surely I am not the only one who feels this way? My friends think I am crazy but hey if you can't sleep then you will do anything possible so that you can.

Does anyone else share this bedding love affair with me?

I have a thing for very comfortable pillows and comforters! :D I have a comforter set that I bought last winter season, that I have not placed on the bed because I am waiting for the perfect sheets. :lol:

Peace,

Are You A Sheet Snob/junkie?[/b]

:yes:

I wasn't particularly until I did a job for this bedding company Montague and Capulet (http://www.montagueandcapulet.com) and as part of my payment they gave me a full set (duvet, shams, sheets, pillowcases... the works) and I've been hooked on high-end bedding ever since. Such an indulgence but the difference is real. Love It. :wub:

Yes I love sheet sets. I'm afraid to get really good ones because my hubby has a tendency to distroy any good sheets and towel to the point that you can tell who sleeps on what side of the bed. I have this love affair with towels too. Not only am I constantly buying them but they have to be folded a certain way. I need therapy!! LOL

I like crisp sheets and bedding. I don't like too high of a count but not too low either. I go for 200 ct. I like that crisp feeling and the sound of it when I snuggle up in bed. And I looove my down comforter. My only problem is getting good duvets. How come stores have such little variety? I want to shout the awesomeness of duvets from the mountain tops hahaha. The only reason why I don't have more sheet sets is because I have no space to store them.

Ughh, figures. The nearest Ikea is two hours away! Well that's reason no. 435 to go learn how to sew.

omg...this is soo me. I treated myself to a beautiful comforter set for my bday, and bought matching white sheets. My bed has to look like perfection before i get into it. I'm one of those people that take forever to make a bed because i want everything to be fluffed and primped - just like on a magazine cover.

When I move, I can't wait to decorate. Hold on i've got some links for you guys.

I don't have to have any fancy sheets on my bed but on wash day I wash my sheets and pillow cases last I try to do them right before I go to sleep that night. I get them Hot out of the drier and before I put them on my bed I sprinkle baby powder on the bed then I put my sheets on. I also like to take a long hot bath before and put laverdar oil on my body and fancy jammies then get inbetween the hot sheets that smell so good and sleep like a baby.:))

YUP:D I got treated to a high thread count several xmas's ago and been hooked ever since...but I've always been anal about my bed and bedding, even as a kid I have more pics of me in my bedroom and my various comforter sets than anything!:-))

I prefer the "magazine" look for my bedroom and bathroom as well and got a California king size bed so I can feel small, it's divine!!

Ok... now I know I'm not alone...

My bed must have a feather mattress, feather comforter, 4 feather pillows and body pillow. My sheet & duvet sets have always been pure white and I spray my bed with lavendar oil when I make it up. My eye and neck pillow are lavendar scented. I wash everything every 2 weeks. I'm not sure how high the thread count is, but I've never had any balls formed or anything. I've been buying organic cotton sheets and they feel like butter. I also have mosquito netting around my bed.

No Ray you're not the only one. I bought some 1000 ct sheets in NYC a couple of years ago and I was hooked. I do buy lesser count sheets but I'm very particular about them. I'm such a sheet snob when I travel I take my own bedding with me.

I am so in tune with you! I worked nights, and started spoiling myself with sweet sheets with high thread counts. I've found some good bargains on Overstock.com, but nothing as good as 1000-count yet. Okay, share....where did you find them????

Yes! I snagged some really nice sheets from Marshall's. I think the thread count is 1000. I should have purchased 2 sets because I've been just washing and re-washing these and neglecting all of my others lol! Since I wash my sheets at least once a week, it is a nuisance using the same ones because I can't just throw them in the dirty clothes and get fresh ones out of the closet. So, I guess I should look for more. There is a HUGE difference in sheets with a higher thread count.

Also, I love bedding period. I have so many comforter sets it's a bit ridiculous so I'm trying to get more quilts since they take up less storage space. I think nice bedding just completely changes the look of a bedroom. I guess that's why I have so many comforters because I love switching up colors and changing comforters is a quick way to change the color scheme of a bedroom.

I'm with you, like HomeFro I also used to travel with my own sheet set. My daughter now knows that I can't sleep on less than 200 counts. In addition, I must wash them at least once a week nothing like sleeping on freshly washed sheets. I read once that sheets are like wearing clothes at night so it is important to keep them clean.

Y'all are preaching! I can't do less than 300 count and lately that's been feeling rough. I love satin sheets above EVERYTHING though.

I can't do sheets in the 100s anymore. They have to be 1000+. I never realized just how sensitive my skin is until I discovered Egyptian cotton a few years back. I'd never thought about thread count before then. I won't even put "regular" cotton sheets in my kid's crib. Nothing but chenille for him.
But I am a bargain hunter, so I don't feel bad about a lil' splurging.
