Keeping On The Sheets

With the May madness ending, I’m trying to get back into a regular blogging routine over here.  My plan is to simply aim for posting 3 times a week.

Mondays always but the other two posts may be sporadic.  And of course, some weeks I’ll post more often and some less often.

You’ll hopefully always see a Happy Homemaker Monday post and since they are a bit easy, most likely a Tiny Tip On A Thursday post. Since today is Thursday (I think? Summer break brain alert already!), it’s time for a tiny tip.

Are we the only ones with a few sets of sheets that don’t quite fit the beds right? Add in a restless sleeper and the sheets seem to continually slip off the mattress. I found this highly annoying. Not sure about you but I don’t enjoy putting sheets on the bed as a daily occurrence.

One day I remembered something I used on the boys’ crib sheets. Crib sheet security clips!

(As you can perhaps surmise from the sheets in the photo, I planned this post during the winter.  No flannel sheets on the beds with summer weather and certainly no snowflake patterns!)

No, I didn’t have them saved somewhere and did have to purchase new ones. They, however, work great for keeping those awkward sheets on the bed even with restless sleepers.

Another trick I borrowed from the boys’ younger days, double up the sheets.  Then, it was in case of leaky diapers and such. Now, it’s for convenience. I don’t always remember but it sure makes changing the sheets easier when I do put double sheets on the bed.

Do you have any tips and tricks for making the hassles of changing sheets and bedding simpler?  In case you didn’t already guess, it’s not one of my favorite chores.

    Great idea, Jean! I haven’t had too much trouble keeping the sheets on since buying online and getting fitted sheets that are cut extra deep, but I can sympathize. Had the same problem when my children were growing up and it was a constant struggle.

    To keep making-the-bed problems to a minimum now I use a comforter year round and just add a warmer top blanket when needed. It makes making the bed a snap.

    By the way…love the flannel sheets with snowflakes on them. Makes me yearn for winter! LOL!
