I thought I needed to buy some new sheets to fit the queen bed. I have a few king top covers. I bought online some sheet straps. So,that will allow me to cover the bed with that I have on hand. I had them stored for a very long time. I was using them to make shopping bags for myself. I will take them out later this day and wash them over the next few days. I am going to see if I can find one dark one to make a darker curtain out of. That way It will be good for Joe to sleep in since he needs darkness to sleep. If you need these straps wish.com has them for $2 including shipping.

It is a good idea to use what you have. For top sheets I prefer bigger ones anyway. If you buy a set you never have a choice.

I never thought of it that way at all. I bought a queen comforter and I am blessed for I am moving up to a queen bed.

Yes, that is the way to do it sharon rather than spend more money you dont really have. Good thinking my friend.

It is good to make things work. Why spend more money than you have to.

That's a good idea to use what you already have.

Those are great ideas to recycle those sheets into something useful. I have made curtains from sheets, but I love your shopping bag idea!

Straps to keep them on the bed you mean?

That is smart to use what you have. We like our top sheets long enough to tuck in. It's so hard to find the right set for deep mattresses. The ones that didn't make the cut are used as dust covers!

I also try to use what I have at home. Those straps are interesting and not expensive.
