we've run out of bed linens. Where can I get the best deal on solid white bedding? I also need solid white towels.

Call your local hotels/motels. I hear they dispose of them long before they're actually worn out.

August and January are "white sale months" at many of the stores.

Hit the garage sales.

If you have a Trading Post or Consumer Call or whatever they call it at your local radio station, call in and leave your request and phone number.

Post on Craigslist (but be careful).

I've bought bedding from with good results. Some of the deals are better than others. I think everything I've purchased has held up pretty good.

Pay close attention to thread count. I bought some sheets once that were as close to gauze as it could get without having to be labelled as such. I linked a site that will give more information on purchasing sheets but myself, I like a good substantial 100% cotton sheet, laundered and bleached, with the smell and slightly rough feel of an outdoor clothesline drying. I've always said if I ever became rich, such that I had housekeepers and maids, I would insist upon fresh line-dried sheets every night.

If you have Costco near by try there. Otherwise I'd go to JC Penneys, Sears or some good name brand store. I have found that I want softness as well as a good size , thick towels and sheets.
