Once a procrastinator....

When I moved into my apartment, I was pretty much dead broke. Therefore, I took any furniture that I could get from anyone who would give it to me. My grandparents graciously gave me one of their beds....unfortunately this mattress was older that I was! It was incredibly uncomfortable. So much so that beginning in May, I started sleeping on my couch because it didn't hurt my back as much.

Needless to say, one of my major purchases that I planned for the summer was a new mattress. So in July, I went to Sleep Experts, talked to mattress salesmen who I think were trained on used car lots, and bought a new mattress. Sleep Experts has a 100 day comfort guarantee, but I was certain I wouldn't need it....until about 3 weeks later. It was seriously just as hard as my grandparents mattress!

But of course, I can't ever do anything immediately; I have to wait until the last possible moment. I was convinced that my 100 days had already passed, but on Saturday, I decided to check. Turns out, my 100 days would be up the very next day! So Sunday afternoon after my morning group project meetings (ugh), I went back to Sleep Experts and said I wanted to trade in my mattress. About 20 minutes later, I had a new mattress picked out and scheduled for delivery today! So now I have another new mattress and can't wait to go to sleep tonight to see if it really is more comfortable than my last two! Better late than never! :)
