    Default Cheap sheets

    Hi, I'm looking to buy some nice but cheap sheets. I was thinking Kmart or target but are their sheets nice to sleep in?
    I have beautiful 1000 thread count sheets but I need a few new sets but don't want to spend a lot.
    Also, what are the Kmart quilt covers like to sleep under?

    I have a few of them. I'll be honest, they make me itchy at first, so I now make sure I wash them 2 or 3 times before I use them. I wash them and add a bit of vinegar as well. I find them pretty comfortable now, and like that I can get a few different colours/ sets because they don't cost me a fortune.
    Same goes for quilt covers.

    Kmart quilt cover didnt last a week on bed before i got rid of it. Have tried Target sheets on kids beds and they seem good.

    I've found Target sheets great. Kmart were pretty awful.

    Admittedly I bought both years ago so things may have changed.

    You get what you pay for at kmart. Target is better quality imo.

    I got cheapies from Big W for DS's bed and they've been pretty good considering the price I paid.

    Otherwise I'd try and find some on sale at Target.

    Target sheet sets are good. As are the cheaper range at Spotlight, but wait until they're on sale (they're over priced for what they are).
    I have the Kmart sheet sets on the girls' beds and they're okay, but I wouldn't buy them again.

    The doona covers from Kmart are pretty rubbish. They're polyester, so are far too hot in Summer and I find the doona slides around in it and gets all bunched up. I do have to credit that they haven't faded though.
    I actually picked up a few cheap doona covers from Coles recently and, even though they're polyester, they're much better than the Kmart ones, both in terms of breathability and the doona staying put.

    Also, if you can find cotton/sateen blend sheet sets, they're usually cheaper than 1000TC, but are just as good. I have a set from an engagement present 5 years ago and they're still like new. I've since bought more in other brands and they're just as good.

    Oh thanks for the replies. I thought the price must have been too good to be true. I'll check out target.

    I love the microfibre Woolies sheets for cheapies. I must be a weirdo, I've never liked the thick cotton hotel like sheets that cost a bomb. I find them scratchy and yuck lol
