How much are you willing to spend on bed sheets? I like the 300 thread count or higher, the most I will spend on sheets is 50 bucks I have a hard time however, finding decent sheets for that price.. I did buy some from walmart... The "Better Homes" brand for 30 bucks and they were very thin. I was buying them from sams club, for 30 bucks (different brand) which were good sheets, the problem is, the last 2 sets I bought frayed on the sides, However I think sam's club is changing the brand to a different one so I will have to see what happens. I have a hard time finding a color that I like i'm a 29 year old male so it hard sometimes to find a color for a guy. My question is what do you find decent sheets on the cheap?

Whatever 600 or 800 thread count sheets cost when on sale ($65-95?).

Enduring inferior products because they "cost less" is not frugality.
Better quality (like sheets) usually lasts longer too.

I just buy the basic 180 thread count from Walmart. I was buying the nicer ones from Sam's but they get holes within a few months. I've had a couple of nice sets from Ross, but again, the higher thread count sheets just seem to wear out faster.

Quality Egyptian cotton high thread count sheets will last way longer than cheap versions. Go to a nice department store or Amazon and order 100% cotton 600 thread count or above. they will last for 5 years at least.

Sign up with Bed Bath & Beyond, Belk, Macys, Overstock, Amazon, Kohls, ... Keep an eye on sales or at least read your email.

Yes, look at major Holiday sales at Macy's when they are at least 50% off. Then buy a nice set for $50.

I've purchased a couple of sets for several hundred dollars a piece. This was 14 years ago and they are still good today. Well worth the investment

Goid bedding is typically worth the investment, as long as you don't have pets with access to the bed.

Yeah

I had two nice sets of sheets, unfortunately, my dog liked to make "nests" and ripped them up. Now I just use cheap sheets.

Discount stores such as Tuesday Morning, Ross dress for Less or Burlington. Or the clearance sales at department stores. They have a bigger selection online - jcpenny, Macy's, etc.
