Buying new sheets is one of those things that somehow keeps getting shoved to the bottom of your to-do list. As a result, you end up sleeping on threadbare sets well past their prime. It's time to up your bedding game!
Luckily, Amazon just slashed prices on the wildly popular CGK microfiber cooling sheets — they have a ridiculous 127,000+ perfect reviews! And right now they're just $25 for a queen set (was $30).
If you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And even those without Prime get free shipping on orders of $25 or more).
You get a lot for your money: a flat sheet, a fitted sheet with pockets up to 16 inches deep and two matching pillowcases. But there's so much more to love about these sheets than the low price.
For starters, they're made of incredibly soft brushed microfiber that feels lighter and finer than standard cotton. They're also breathable, with a silky feel that helps cool you down while you snooze.
Choose from a huge range of colors, including classics like white and gray and standouts like yellow, purple, red and blue — they're all marked down! You can grab these babies on sale in every size, from twin to California king and split king.
These sheets have an army of fans who rave about everything from the price to the incredible feel.
"The softness is wonderful," a five-star shopper said. "...Not too hot at night and they don't weigh on you like a flannel sheet might." A fellow happy customer said the CGK sheets changed the way they view bedding: "I had no idea what I was missing before I bought these sheets."
Plenty of folks love the sizing, too. "The sheets fit perfectly on our bed and stayed put even though my hubby is a rough sleeper who tosses quite a bit while sleeping," a satisfied buyer said.
"Love these sheets," another five-star reviewer said. "These are unbelievably comfortable and not like what you would buy at regular stores. They're extremely soft and have a nice feel to them. Haven't had sheets like these before and I've owned many."
Martha Stewart is, literally, a household name. Since her rise to fame with the syndicated lifestyle show Martha Stewart Living from 1993 to 2004, Stewart has become the ultimate "homemaking entrepreneur." She has written numerous bestselling books, including the recent Martha's American Food; has launched a media empire with Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia and Martha Stewart Living magazine and has continued to expand her reach across all forms of media. And, of course, there has also been Martha & Snoop's Potluck Dinner Party, a MTV show featuring her surprising — and heartwarming — close friendship with rapper Snoop Dogg as they cook and chat their way through every charming episode. As she works with Frito-Lay to launch the "Iconic Snack Box" (see below for more on that yumminess!), we sat down with Stewart to talk her current obsessions, from high-quality dairy products to high-caliber face cream and beyond.
Jenny D.'s marriage ended in divorce, a home foreclosure and thousands of dollars in debt. Now, she's trying to teach her kids healthy money habits and keep them from going down the same rocky financial path.
Jenny D., a public information officer, thought she and her now ex-husband were buying a house they could afford when they moved from the Midwest to a suburb outside of New York City.“We thought we were making an investment,” Jenny tells Yahoo Life.But between a job loss and growing family, the pair found themselves “kind of underwater” and living paycheck to paycheck, with mounting credit card debt and neglected mortgage payments.“My biggest money mistake was probably assuming that I was always going to make or have the amount of money that I thought I would,” Jenny says.“It wasn’t like we ever thought we bit off more than we could chew,” she recalls. “It just was that life happened, and then income stopped coming in and it was like, ‘OK, wait a minute. We’re living way beyond our means here. How are we gonna fix this?’”They stopped making mortgage payments, and by the time the bank foreclosed on their home, their total debt — between the mortgage and credit cards — amounted to $550,000. Jenny says it was “horribly embarrassing” and that she felt too much shame to talk about it — even with her husband.
