So, if you have a little bit left over this month and want to pamper yourself without splurging, the following items can soften life’s rough edges without putting a major dent in your wallet. Enjoy!
High-Quality Bed Sheets
Over the last few years, a slew of hip new mattress companies have flooded the market with exciting and expensive new products that arrive tightly rolled and vacuum-sealed, promising the perfect night’s sleep. Less attention is paid to the importance of a great pair of sheets though, but that’s where the metaphorical rubber meets the road.
You can get a set of sheets for less than $39, and at that price, you won’t find better quality than Brooklyn Bedding‘s brushed microfiber sheets. They’re made from plush, brushed, finely woven fibers that measure less than one denier in diameter — for context, a human hair is 20 denier. Breathable, machine washable, and wrinkle-free, they’re as easy to maintain as they are cozy — and they’re currently on sale at half off for less than $20.
The Sleep Foundation ranks them among the six best affordable pairs of sheets on the market for 2022. Every other pick on the list was over $100.

Plush Bathrobe and Soft, Warm Slippers
On cold nights, in drafty rooms or on lazy days, there’s nothing like a full-body hug from a blanket with arms with pillow shoes to match. Like sheets, you can spend a lot of money on a good robe and slipper set, but here too you can get real quality in the low double-digits.
For around $30 — currently $29.99, down from $36 on Amazon — you can wrap yourself in a luxury combed terry cotton shawl-style bathrobe with matching slippers. Softer and more durable than standard cotton, combed terry cotton is spun from longer fibers that are more absorbent and more comfortable to the touch. If you’re in the mood to waste money, you can spend much more for comparable quality.
