Looking for fitted sheets that fit my specifications as well as my bed
Recently I went shopping to replace the fitted sheet on my bed, and was confronted with these shopping options: I could buy a replacement fitted sheet of a yucky quality for $15, or buy a whole new set of decent quality sheets for $30.
I bought the new set. But I'm wondering if it's possible to buy a decent quality, (say, 300 thread count) fitted sheet by itself so that the extra top sheet and pillowcases from my old set can be turned into a very useful second set of sheets for my bed. I went to the Eaton Centre yesterday and could only find fitted sheets in ivory for $40 or $50. So far I've looked in the Bay, Winners, Sears, and on Amazon and a couple of other boutique-like places. Only the larger, department-style places even seem to have the components for sale separately.
Any suggestions? I can't the only one who has this problem and resents the waste it causes.
