Affordable Bedding Ideas
Decorating on a budget is just a good idea, especially when you have kids. Kids grow up and grow out of their cribs and toddler beds in the blink of an eye, all the while wanting to say goodbye to “baby stuff” and enjoy “big girl” and “big boy” things. Whether you need bedding sets for everyday discount prices, seek toddler beds for girls or sturdy cribs for boys, shopping online is one smart way to save time and money. Bedding can be costly, especially when experts recommend three sets of sheets for each bed – one on the bed, one in the wash and one set in waiting. Kids will be kids, so sheets get used for everything from tents to superhero capes not to mention the quick-change artistry required during the potty training phase; who can keep up?
One way to manage costs is to stick to basics and invest in solid color bedding for sheets and pillowcases. This allows for more flexibility as sheets may be assigned to more than one bed whereas a comforter, quilt or pillow shams are typically designated for just one room. Look for reversible quilts and comforters to get longer life out of your bedding choices and try to choose machine washable items to reduce expensive dry cleaning charges. Duvet cover sets make a lot of sense as you can launder the decorative covers time and again while prolonging the useful life of the down or down alternative filled comforter.
When selecting toddler beds for girls or boys, look for a 2 in 1 convertible style which can be converted from a toddler bed to a large and comfortable chair as the child grows – your investment will pay dividends over the years. Another fun convertible bedding idea if you’ve always wanted a king size bed without wanting to spring for the mattress – take two twins and convert them to a king with an instant king twin bed bridge – that’s a smart and affordable bedding idea! Since the traditional white sale with bedding on sale in January is a thing of the past, look for everyday low prices and great deals at places like Bed Bath & Beyond for affordable bedding ideas.
