Since we had to get rid of it we have been sleeping on the a simple queen size frame and then moved up to a waterbed frame that was given to us by my grandparents.
Then I got to thinking that it would be nice to get a new mattress and was lured into browsing the memory foam mattresses suggested when you click the bed. What's this called? Upselling?? Cross-selling?? Well they sold me. After searching a couple and reading the reviews I had narrowed my selection down and playfully added it to the cart along with the bed. (We also bought a new mattress and boxspring set when we bought the new bed in 2006. It was a pillowtop mattress and just not holding up like it should have. Again you get what you pay for.)
How many times have I done this before? "Pretend shopped" where I browse and add things to the bag only to be left there for so long that they are deleted into the internet abyss.
I just let it sit there and waited for the Hubba to get home, so I could playfully ask him if we could please, please, please get them. The Hubba-Bub came home and I ever so casually said I found a bed a mattress for sale. I ran it by him and he said, "Is it new?!" I happily showed him the above pictures and the shopping cart from Overstock.com.
He asked how I was able to get almost $120 off, to which I replied, "Baby, I'm an online shopping coupon master." (the bed was already on sale with $44 off and I found a 10% off discount) Then the big one came..."How much is shipping?" Of course I replied, "Why my love, shipping is free." I was sure this whole thing was a no go and we would just pretend and play at the idea of having a nice new bed and new mattress to sleep on in a few days, but he was sold and even suggested we look at a king size. We did, Cali King actually, but decided that we'd stick with our Queenie. To that I quickly checked out my cart and have been imagining the blissful nights sleep that I will soon be getting.
It is just another way that February LOVES us. :)
