Inspired by Frugal Upstate...

...where Jenn has a really cool idea about sheets. This is officially "Works for Me Wednesday." Jenn was, in turn, inspired by Shannon at "Rocks in My Dryer." Just a day to post something that makes your life a little easier! Here is another cool sheet trick. You know how they are always coming off the bed? Well, take 4 lengths of elastic--one for each corner of a fitted sheet. I would say about 8 inches long. Sew the elastic crosswise at each corner. I wish I could make a picture of this, but if I can I'll take a photo. When you put the sheets on the bed, the elastic is far enough under the mattress that the sheets don't pull off. Here are links the other other blogs. I've never done links, so I hope they work! http://frugalupstate.blogspot.com/ http://rocksinmydryer.typepad.com/

I buy those little clips on elastics at the dollar store-I think that they are supposed to keep your ironing board cover on, anyway, I use those to keep the sheets on the matresses in the camper (camper matresses are thiner so regular fitted sheets like to slip off)

Wow, I never thought of those. I think that would be a lot easier, so I'll have to watch out for them.

good idea - I have queen size sheets on a double bed and they look so untidy because they are too big. But the full sheets are too small, so I'd rather have baggy sheets.

Maybe the elastic or Jenn's clips would pull the edges in on the queen-size sheets to make them fit better. :)
