is there a part of you, a part of your home, a part of your creativity that gets more attention from you than anything else?
Yes. That would be my pillow. So obviously we are all spending most of our lives sleeping than any one other thing, but this is where my creativity starts. I dream all night long. I always wake up with an idea and always go to bed with 5 stirring in my head. I call it my creative curse. It makes sleeping so hard for me. It takes me at least an hour to tell my brain to stop creating. I really should keep a notebook by my bed to write down every thing that I am thinking when I wake up.
I Love nice , high thread count white sheets and pillowcases. I bleach all my bedding once a week in the hottest water I can create in my washing machine. Over time my bedding becomes as soft as butter but as holey as Swiss cheese. I buy my bedding at stores like, Tuesday morning, Marshalls, TJmax, Sams or Costco. I buy the highest thread count my budget will allow.
So last week I needed two new pillowcases. I went to Tuesday Morning (this is where the closer look comes into play in the challenge) and found two pillowcases. So if you were to look back at my pillows how much would you think the 2 pillowcases would have cost? Not more than $15.00? $20.00?
Well here is a closer look at the packaging. I paid $24.99 for the two (still a little pricey I know, but these splurges are worth it to me as I use them everyday) But the regular price was $170.00 - i will retype this so you know this was no mistake. One Hundred and Seventy dollars! Outrageous! I realize that this price could be anything and they can make you think you are saving a ton but all the other pillowcases were $60. regular price.
So, my post is two fold.
- one to do my SPT - thanks Lelly you are awesome and i loved seeing how many turned out for SPT this week.
- if you are spending $170.00 on your pillowcases go to Tuesday Morning and use the saving to travel to Europe!
