So, last year we broke down and bought ourselves a new mattress. Tried it at the store and everything, felt great, way better than our previous mattress. We decided to go a step down from our queen size bed since it’s a pain in the butt to get it up and down the stairs in our home, never mind the headboards for queen size beds, they don’t bend and fold like a mattress going up that stairwell (we have an older home) so a step down is what we got…
At the same time, we also decided to get the girls new mattresses and beds as well, the headboards for full size beds were almost a problem going up the stairs but none the less we made it happen.
Now, why am I talking about mattress we bought last year? Because I HATE OUR MATTRESS! I don’t know if it’s just the way *I* sleep or what, but every morning I wake up with a sore back! I’d much rather sleep on the couch downstairs, in fact some nights I actually do because it’s more comfortable. I wish we would have bought a higher end mattress one of those sleep number ones or something but those are just way out of our price range.
I need a new mattress, but with this one being only a year old, I just can’t justify it! So what do I do? I think that if I buy things it will make it better… Yeah RIGHT! We didn’t buy a whole new bed frame or anything and truthfully our room is pretty small so the frame it’s on now is great, but I’d love a flat nice headboard, maybe a leather headboard, something to make our bed look a little nicer against the wall. It would be nice, but is that going to solve my sleep problem? Nope!
So maybe I’ll skip the headboard and ‘accessory’ shopping for now, save that money and put it in a “Get Me A New Mattress” fund!
