• Is it possible to have twin sheets fit a full size bed?

    I bought some kind of expensive twin bed sheets a few months ago because as of right now I have a twin bed. I’m 14 by the way, and I am saving up to get a full size bed in the near future.

    I bought some kind of expensive twin bed sheets a few months ago because as of right now I have a twin bed. I’m 14 by the way, and I am saving up to get a full size bed in the near future. I love the bedsheets I have right now and I really don’t want to get ones to fit a full size bed, so now I’m wondering if it’s possible to make them fit a full size bed? This question probably sounds idiotic but the bedsheets I have are from the 80s and I don’t want to pay a lot to get ones that fit a bigger bed. Thanks in advance.

  • Have you ever heard of a "settee"??? Growing up in Mississippi we always called them settees instead of sofa or couch! I never even heard?

    the word couch before until I moved to Oregon! What is the difference between a sofa, a couch and a settee?

  • Are flannel sheets and microfiber sheets basically the same thing?

    Best answer: Absolutely not. I can't believe they make sheets of micro fiber. That stuff is NOT cloth. It is actually a form of plastic. Drop it on the ground and everything there sticks to it. Microfiber cloths may be great but cleaning one that has hit the ground is nearly impossible. Cleaning microfiber chairs and... show more
    Best answer: Absolutely not. I can't believe they make sheets of micro fiber. That stuff is NOT cloth. It is actually a form of plastic. Drop it on the ground and everything there sticks to it. Microfiber cloths may be great but cleaning one that has hit the ground is nearly impossible. Cleaning microfiber chairs and couches is a pain also. Flannel sheets, on the other hand, are wonderful, in the winter time.

  • Is worth the money to hire a professional organizer?

    My wife wants to hire a professional organizer to come in and help finish arranging our home. We've working at for a year, but my wife seems more and more stressed by the simplest things. She thinks that if we can get everything organized once and for all, we will much better able to keep it up. I'm not so sure. It's so easy to fall behind. Personally, I don't see any problems, other than her desk. Is it worth the extra money to bring in someone? What's wrong with my wife just doing it little by little? She found one through her mommy group, but in my opinion it's kind of expensive. $180 for 3 hours! And we're still trying to recover from being robbed last month.

  • What Size Bed Sheet Should I Buy?

    I just bought a new memory foam mattress and it is 12 inches thick, so a bit thicker than a normal full size mattress. Should I stick to a regular size fitted sheet or do I need a queen size?

  • What is the best way to move my new washing machine into my basement?

    Best answer: Obviously, paying the store to deliver is the smart way to go. That way, you aren't responsible if your expensive new washer gets damaged.

    Best answer: Obviously, paying the store to deliver is the smart way to go. That way, you aren't responsible if your expensive new washer gets damaged. Okay, I get it...you're going to do it yourself. There are a couple of options. Renting an appliance dolly makes the most sense, but you can probably make do with your standard dolly (assuming it is rated for the weight). Your washer probably weighs a little less...but within spitting distance of 200 lbs. Depending on the method you choose, the weight may be reduced by friction, but worst case is that each of you will need to lift (or hold back) no more than 100lbs.

    If you opt to use your regular dolly, you'll want to strap the washer to it (like on an appliance dolly). Then you get one person above, and one person below. Walk it down the stairs, one step at a time and take time to rest mid-way, if needed. Gravity will do the work. You just have to control it for 8 inches at a time. Make a few practice runs with the empty box to be sure you have the hang of going step by step, and that there is enough clearance. The last thing you need is to get stuck halfway!

    The other method is to slide it. In fact, just last week my wife and I slid a new water heater into the basement. I got a long 2x10 and laid it along the steps as a slide. Then we laid it down at the balance point on the top step and both of us got below it to guide it down. Friction helps reduce the weight, so it's quite manageable. Best if it's still in the box, otherwise it'll get scratched up. Sounds like the box won't fit through the door, but you could at least lay cardboard under it.

    We’re looking to buy a house. Currently in a 1 bedroom loft we’ve outgrown. I have a stepson turning 9 soon, and a son turning 2 soon.

    We’re looking to buy a house. Currently in a 1 bedroom loft we’ve outgrown. I have a stepson turning 9 soon, and a son turning 2 soon. My 2 year old, who doesn’t have his own room right now, is finally sleeping all through the night so it’s possible to have the kids share a bedroom now. Except the 9 year old has a lot of things, namely legos, that are choking hazards, and many things that the 2 year old could break/ruin. The 9 year old is only with us every other weekend, so his room is mostly wasted space, that could double as an office or guest room, both of which are ideal for us, my husband works from home a lot, and it’d be nice to have our parents be able to stay the night. Except he has this twin size loft bed with a bat cave underneath that I made for him when he was 5 that he’s totally not ready to give up. A 3-bedroom house is a lot easier to find than a 4-bed, and often less expensive. What would you do?
