January and February mean white sales. You can take advantage of deep discounts on both sheets, comforters, blankets, bedding, towels and more. I love the idea of huge savings on goods, but keep in mind that prices may have been inflated from the start.
I've already ordered a featherbed and sheet set from Macy's (the featherbed is no longer on sale). Even if the prices were too high to begin with, I FEEL like I'm saving big. Both were a steal and qualified for free shipping. Saved me a trip to the mall, fighting the crowds and digging through piles of merchandise. Always a good thing.
If you're buying sheets, keep in mind that anything over 230-thread count is basically the same. No need to buy mega-thread count. It's more important to buy quality fabric such as Egyptian or Turkishcotton.
