Bedspreads

Save money on bedspreads by always purchasing thrift friendly reversible bedspreads.  Not only will this give you two colors and possibly two pattern options, but if one side gets soiled or torn, you can just turn it over.

Frugal footnotes:

Here are some more frugal tips for bedspreads.

- White or very light bedspreads are great for staging rooms, but impractical for daily wear.
 
- Make Duvets out of quality sheets.
 
- Pieced (quilted) bedspreads have so many seams they don't wear well if you sit on your bed.
 
- Whole cloth quilted bedspreads also wear out quicker as the quilting thread breaks.
 
- Neutral colored spreads last longer, as you don't get tired of them. Use accessories to bring added color to your room.
 
- Colors in cool tones make a room more restful and look larger.
