No Way, Duvet.

Duvet Cover Clips CollageHere is a tip for keeping your comforter snuggly in it’s place inside it’s duvet cover: use comforter clips.  We picked these puppies up on a whim a few years ago at Bed Bath & Beyond and they’ve been great.  Unlike the “Pedi-Paws” motorized nail file that we also picked up on a whim because B insisted we try it on KP.  That was significantly less successful, to say the least.  She barks and bolts from the room if you bring it near her.  But the comforter clips rock.  They cost around $5 and are worth every penny.  A balled-up comforter is no fun, especially in the middle of the night, and especially if the balled-up part ends up not on your side.  Then all you have is a scraggly section of loose duvet cover and no comforter meat.

The clips look like padded binder clips, and fasten to the inside corners of both the duvet cover and the comforter.  To use them, turn your duvet cover inside out and lay your comforter flat on top.  Fasten one clip to each corner (clipping both the comforter and cover together), flip the whole thing right-side out, and close up your duvet cover as you normally would.  The clips will hold the comforter nicely in it’s place, with no rearranging required until the next time you wash your duvet cover.  And that’s it.  Yep, it’s really that easy.

Side note, that’s obviously not our bed pictured above, but we are looking at this similar-looking headboard from Ikea (our bedroom is ridiculously boring and empty), and I’m thinking of getting the bedding above at West Elm on sale right now.  Thoughts?  I can’t decide if it’s too cartoon-y.
